Just installed rainlendar 2 for Linux (rainlendar2-lite_2.11.1.b129-1_i386.deb) on Linux Mint 15. Everything went well. I loaded a few events, adjusted the calendar and event list the way I like it, but I couldn't figure out how to set hotkeys.
The main calendar and events list weren't going transparent (Linux problem?) so I clicked "Hide Windows", thinking I could pop them back up like I did in Windows. No luck--the window stays hidden. I installed a panel link to rainlendar2, but all it does is start a new instance, after popping up a warning note.
After killing all rainlendar2 processes, running the program from the menu or from the panel applet, it still starts a process but doesn't display the window. I think this is because I set some variable in the options...
In Linux Alt 0-9 don't do anything for hidden rainlendar process.
What I need is
<li>some means of getting rainlendar to show up on the desktop when started, and </li>
<li>a button on the panel to show/hide rainlendar</li>
I used rainlendar for years in Windows, then started using Thunderbird/Lightening. Now that I've changed to 100% linux, I need raindlendar again!
