HOWTO: Print calendar in Mozilla Calendar / Sunbird on Linux

Many have reported that it is not possible to print a calendar in
Mozilla Calendar for Linux. The problem is described in bug #268179:
you can preview the calendar, but not print it (because simply the
"Print" button is missing). This occurs on Linux (with
non-xprint-enabled builds, which all official builds are), and maybe
on other platforms.

But there's a workaround: To show the print preview, Mozilla Calendar
creates a temporary file "calendarPrint.html" (or
"calendarPrint-1.html" and so on, if the previous one exists already).
On Linux, this in stored in /tmp (on Windows it would be in the user's
temp directory, which is something like "C:\Documents and Settings\Joe
User\Application Data\Temp"). The file exists as long as the print
preview of the calendar is open.

So to print the previewed calendar, you must just locate the
"calendarPrint.html" file on your hard drive, open it with, say,
Firefox, and print it normally.

You can also use the html2ps program to automate this: Just create a
shortcut which executes the command

html2ps -L calendarPrint.html | lpr

This converts the html file into Postscript code and sends it to the
default printer. The -L is for landscape page mode. You can also use
the "-s xxx" parameter to make the output appear bigger or smaller.

I hope that this information will be of use to some.

Thanks to mostafah (the MozCal dev) for helping me to find this
workaround.

Have a look at the FAQ at wiki.mozilla.org. The solution there is quite
short. Maby you can add/replace it with your howto.

Mozilla Calendar
I've recently started using Mozilla Calendar, and so far the features and user interface are almost exactly what I want... but (maybe) not quite. I use a hosted mail-server to keep my email in one central place - but access it from a number of different computers. IMAP is already configured and secured with a VPN, but I don't currently have a secured ftp service that I can access remotely (and using FTP is all I can find documented...) I notice the "Remote Server URL" option when creating new calendars... but I am unsure about the server configuration requireme...

converting sun calendar to mozilla calendar
Has anyone written a script that takes the SUN calendar format and converts it to a .ics format that can be imported into mozilla calendar? I started working on a script to do this but I figured that someone else had already been down this road. I didn't want to re-invent the wheel if I didn't have to. regards, Dwight Marzolf Tue, 7 Sep 2004 09:04:35 <7413cfa7.0409070804.2f8fccf9@posting.google.com> netscape.public.mozilla.calendar Dwight Marzolf <dwight.marzolf@analog.com> >Has anyone written a script that takes the SUN calendar format and >conv...

Mozilla Calendar <--> Mozilla Sunbird
Hi, I have been going through Mozilla Sunbird searching for references to "Mozilla Calendar" and found alot - even on the About page.

GroupWise Calendar & Mozilla Calendar Integration?
We use GroupWise at our office using IMAP. Thunderbird will show the calendar events as a list (like emails) but not on an actual calendar view (day, week, month etc). Is there anyway to get these events to show up automatically in Mozilla Calendar? Is there anyway to click on a day as in GW Calendar and create a new event and sent it to a an email list, in either Mozilla Calendar or Thunderbird? I would really appreciate anyone's help. Thanks. _________________________________ James Williamson Technical Consultant & Network Analyst The Bradford Group 1940 ...

How to set-up a CalDAV Google Calendar in Mozilla Calendar / Lightning
I've just figured this out and am posting here in hope it's useful: Google Calendar now supports "CalDAV", a presumably better standard for remotely shared and writable data (no more need for the "Provider for Google Calendar" add-on to have write access). To set up your calendars in Lightning: 1. Go to your online Google Calendar, select "Settings / Calendars / Share This Calendar", then enter the Google Mail e-mail address of the person you want to share your calendar with (I think they must also have a Google Calendar account). 2. C...

Mozilla Calendar suddenly does not show remote calendar anymore
Hi, I'm using Mozilla Calendar (latest build 2004121719-cal, Linux) with a WebDAV server to show 2 remote calendars and one local calendar. Suddenly, one of the remote calendars' events completely stopped showing, while the other two calendars are still shown. Reloading the calendar doesn't help. Unchecking and checking again the calendar in the calendars list doesn't help. When I add a new appointment to the calendar, it is apparently added to the remote calendar (the progress icon turns for some time), but not shown. I have tried using the Windows version (on anoth...
