24 Jan 2008 Share calendar between Zimbra users

This post describes how to create shared calendars between two users in Zimbra 5.0

In this example, the administrator designates a mount point to userA@example.com for the calendar to  userB@example.com account for which he will have read/write permissions.

As user zimbra do the following

zmmailbox
mbox> adminAuthenticate -u https://server.example.com:7071 admin@example.com password
mbox> selectMailbox userB@example.com
mailbox: userB@example.com, size: 1.44 GB, messages: 20868, unread: 2564

mbox userB@example.com>createMountpoint --view appointment /userB-calendar userB@example.com /Calendar

userA@example.com should now see the calendar to userB@example.com as userB-calendar in the Calendar view.

23 Nov 2007 Free 2008 calendar for download

2008 calendar imageI’ve modified my calendar and saved it as a Adobe Acrobat (PDF) document free for download. You can easily modify this calendar if you have Adobe Illustrator available or any other software that can edit PDF-files.A possible alternative to my calendar is to use The Calendar Printing Assistant for Office Outlook 2007, an application for people who need an easy way to print and customize their Outlook 2007 calendar information.

22 Nov 2007 Create a year calendar for 2008 using pcal

I wanted to make a whole year calendar and found pcal, a command line tool.

pcal -F 1 -E -B -O -p -w -o 2008.ps 2008

  • -F starting weekday; 1 is Monday
  • -E specifies European formatted dates
  • -B leave unused date boxes blank, default is grey
  • -O selected days will be printed as outlined characters
  • -p output in portrait mode
  • -o specifies an output file in PostScript format.
  • 2008 is the year I want to print the calendar. PCAL’s default option is to produce the calendar for the current year.

It is also possible to generate a calendar as HTML table using the -H switch.

This program can be installed in Debian/Ubuntu
apt-get install pcal
