Thread: To Do List embedded in KDE Desktop

  1. #1

    Default To Do List embedded in KDE Desktop

    Hi,

    I am looking for a very simple stand alone todo list editor that will sit on my desktop. Something as simple as an embedded or floating text box on my desktop would do it. I have searched high and low on the interweb and kde-apps (didn't like any of the superkaramba ones I tried) and don't like the solutions with my current calendar (sunbird synced with google calendar).

    I am running SUSE 11.0 with KDE 3.5 (tried KDE 4 but don't think it's ready for me to switch over).

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    What I do is install "Basket'; when opened it resides in the systray. Under "General" I make "To_Do". I also have "My Notes" & "My New Notes", etc.

    Kontact is a PIM with calendar, todo and alarms, etc. which is way more than I need.

    There are others
    nForce5, AMD 5600+; HP dv9700z, AMD "Puma"; both openSUSE 11.1 x86-64

    KNotes might do the trick if that's all you need?

    Awesome. Both are very helpful. KNotes would be perfect minus the thumbtack and if I could set the background to transparent. Basket is more full featured, and I will play around with it to see if it will be the easiest.

    I thought about having a look at Gnome's Tasque, Chandler, and Thinking Rock.

    Will update on my favorite.

    Conky was exactly what I was looking for. I can now replace gkrellm with a transparent alternative embedded into the desktop too.

    See a good how-to here: Step By Step: Customize Conky for Ambient Linux Productivity
