    Appointment Reminder Software ?

    I am after a appointment reminder for Lubuntu.

    I wish to be reminded the day before and again on the day of the appointment,

    Osmo comes with Lubuntu, however in my search for help I have seen many people saying it does not work well.

    I tried qtodo but it only works in minutes, not days and months.

    Lubuntu comes with Chromium and I use Claws Email.

    Any suggestions for a good dependable appointment reminder package for Lubuntu ?

    Thanks, Rodney.

    Orage lets you set up appointments in your calendar, though I don't know if the alarm works quite the way you want (it does have some interesting recurrence options).

    Install Thunderbird + Lightning plugin, there you go. You will get functionality better then MS Outlook.

    Since you use Claws Mail you could use Sunbird, which makes more sense
    than installing TB+Lightning.

    Thank You, Sunbird looks good, this also gave me the hint to see if Claws mail had something similar, it does .

    Claws has a plugin called vCalendar, mostly meant for meetings but has alarms.

    So I will trial both.

    Thank you everyone for your hints and help.
