       gsimplecal - lightweight calendar applet


       gsimplecal [-h|--help|-v|--version|next_month|prev_month]


       This manual page documents the usage of the gsimplecal command.

       gsimplecal  is  a lightweight calendar applet. When it is started, it first shows up, when
       you run it again, it closes the running instance, thus making it very  easy  to  integrate
       anywhere without the need to make some wrapper scripts.

       It was intentionally made for use with tint2 panel to be launched upon clock click, but of
       course it will work with any other panel, or no panel at all. For example you can bind  it
       to some hotkey in you window manager config.

       You  may  also  configure gsimplecal to display different world time zones clocks. See the
       CONFIGURATION section for details.


       -v, --version
            Print the program name and version to stdout, then exit with code 0.

       -h, --help
            Print the short usage help to stderr, then exit with error code 2.

       prev_month, next_month
            If the program is not running, simply run it.  If  the  program  is  running,  change
            currently displayed month.

       If  no  options  and  commands are given, the program is toggled, i.e. if it is running it
       stops, otherwise it starts.


       To configure the application you should manually create the configuration file.  The  file
       is   first   searched   in   $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gsimplecal/config.   Usually  that  will  be

       If found, it is used. If not found, system-wide  configuration  is  searched  in  all  the
       $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/gsimplecal/config locations.

   Sample config file
              show_calendar = 1
              show_timezones = 1
              mark_today = 1
              show_week_numbers = 0
              close_on_unfocus = 0
              external_viewer = sunbird -showdate "%Y-%m-%d"
              clock_format = %a %d %b %H:%M
              force_lang = en_US.utf8
              mainwindow_decorated = 0
              mainwindow_keep_above = 1
              mainwindow_sticky = 0
              mainwindow_skip_taskbar = 1
              mainwindow_resizable = 0
              mainwindow_position = none
              mainwindow_xoffset = 0
              mainwindow_yoffset = 0
              clock_label = UTC
              clock_tz = :UTC
              clock_label = Local
              clock_tz =

   Config options description
       The options are pretty self explanatory, but here is detailed description:

       show_calendar: 1 or 0, defaults to 1.
            Sets whether the calendar should be shown. Most users want this option to be 1.

       show_timezones: 1 or 0, defaults to 0.
            Sets whether the different time zone clocks should be shown.

       mark_today: 1 or 0, defaults to 1.
            Sets  whether  today's  date  will  be  marked  in  the calendar (besides the default
            selection, i.e. when you click on the other day, today will  remain  marked  somehow,
            e.g. in bold print).

       show_week_numbers: 1 or 0, defaults to 0.
            Sets whether week numbers are shown in the calendar.

       close_on_unfocus: 1 or 0, defaults to 0.
            Sets  whether  the  calendar  will  close  if  the  window  loses focus. Note that if
            mainwindow_skip_taskbar is set to 1 then the calendar window may not be  given  focus
            upon creation

       external_viewer: string, defaults to empty string.
            Command  line  to  run when doubleclicking a date. This string is strftime'd (see man
            strftime for the possible substitutions) and passed to the shell. Thus  you  can  use
            pipes, redirections, and whatever, I hope.
            Currently  the  shell is hardcoded to /bin/sh though. I hope that will do for all the
            users, but if you've got a trouble, please file a ticket (see REPORTING BUGS).

       clock_format: string
            Sets the clocks format. Look man strftime for the possible formats.

       force_lang: string
            Overrides the LANG environment variable, thus making it possible to change the  first
            day  of week, i.e. choose if Monday or Sunday goes first.  Basically it's the same as
            running gsimplecal as

                LANG=en_GB.utf8 gsimplecal

            Must be one of locale -a output.

       mainwindow_decorated: 1 or 0, defaults to 0.
            Tells your window manager to decorate or not to decorate the main window.

       mainwindow_keep_above: 1 or 0, defaults to 1.
            Sets whether the main window should be placed on top of other windows by your  window

       mainwindow_sticky: 1 or 0, defaults to 0.
            Tells your window manager to show gsimplecal on all desktops.

       mainwindow_skip_taskbar: 1 or 0, defaults to 1.
            Sets whether the main window should be shown in the task list by your panel or window

       mainwindow_resizable: 1 or 0, defaults to 1.
            Sets whether your window manager should allow the main window to be resized.  If  you
            are  using  a  tiling  window  manager  which supports floating windows, setting this
            options to 0 will most likely tell your WM not to  tile  the  window.   (Tested  with
            XMonad and Awesome).

       mainwindow_position: mouse|center|none, defaults to mouse.
            Tells your window manager where to place the gsimplecal window:

                 close  to the mouse cursor position (this one is useful when you bind gsimplecal
                 on some mouse click command);

                 in the center of the screen;

                 it's up to your window manager to decide, where to place the window (this one is
                 useful  when you bind gsimplecal invocation on some hotkey, so you can configure
                 your window manager to place gsimplecal in some predefined position).

       mainwindow_xoffset and mainwindow_yoffset: integer, default to 0.
            Allow for main window position fine tuning. Throw an integer at these, and it'll move
            the window by that number of pixels.

       clock_label and clock_tz: string
            These two options should go in pairs and must be in the order given.
            Each pair creates new clock. The clock_label variable sets the string to be displayed
            near the clock, the clock_tz sets the time zone.
            If you omit the value for clock_tz, local time will be shown.
            For a list of time zones see man timezone, or ls /usr/share/zoneinfo


       You may use the following keyboard accelerators while gsimplecal window has a  focus  (not
       yet configurable):

       Escape, Ctrl+w, Ctrl+q
            Close the window.

       n    Switch to the next month.

       p    Switch to the previous month.

       N    Jump one year forward.

       P    Jump one year backward.

       hjkl Vi-style dates navigation:

            h -> left

            j -> down

            k -> up

            l -> right

       g, Home
            Jump to the current date.
