Problem configuring Remind with Finnish language

Long time ago I got rid of clocks, watches and calendars. But now as I'm  
started to study again I can't manage without calendar/reminder. And I  
found this one and it seems to be what I need. But I have one little  
problem here. I'm using Puppy Linux. I installed Remaind first from debian  
package and it worked ok. Then I noticed that I can get it translated in  
my own language so I downloaded the source and compiled it with Finnish  
language. Everything seem to work except when I try to run it with -c  
option. When I do that, terminal starts to run empty lines. When I  
configure Remind without Finnish, it works fine with c- option too and I  
get my calendar showing in terminal.

This is one of the reminders I played with. Birthdays.

REM 15 February MSG Marjut.
REM 22 March MSG Irma.
REM 14 March MSG Matti.
REM 10 April MSG Väinö.
REM 25 April MSG Tuula.
REM 29 May MSG Hilkka.
REM 11 August MSG Taito.
REM 26 September MSG Minä.
REM 12 October MSG Rauno.
REM 10 December MSG Maija.

I tried this with month names in Finnish and everything worked but the -c  
option. It's not a big deal, I can use English version of Remind. But you  
know ... when there is this possibility and as you can clearly see when  
reading this, English is not my native language. What am I doing wrong?  
What you need to know to tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Re: Problem configuring Remind with Finnish language

I found it. Something here thinks that Finnish word for wednesday -  
keskiviikko - is too long: 2 letters too much. I chanced it to keskari but  
I have to keep that private because in spoken language it can mean beer or  
f*** finger. But now Remind works on my machine. Wonderful program. I'm  
not any expert in computing (or english). I had Windows 98 in my first PC  
and when XP came out I changed to Linux and after few trials I have been  
with Puppy Linux. I remember how I found it. First I found Barry Kaulers  
nice little vector graphics program called Eve. It was amazing, 74K bytes  
and you could do crazy things with it. It's only program I still miss from  
windows world. I noticed then that Kauler starded to prepare his own linux  
distribution and I played with every new one he shared. The thing that I  
liked in Linux was that I really could make it to do what I wanted and  
nothing else and it didn't do any suspicious things behind my back. And  
Remind is a program which goes straight with this idea. Of course this  
takes me pretty much learning all the time, but I really like to know how  
things work out. I've been trying and trying here for three days, but now  
it works and thats that. Thanks for this great app! I have to go out to  
plough.

Bug#643466: PATCH:Remind FTBS on Debian with recently activated -Werror=format-security flag

Hi, I've attached a patch which fixes FTBS following a Debian security
enhancement.

Also, I noted a warning during the compilation init.c:

init.c: In function ‘InitRemind’:
init.c:140:14: warning: variable ‘tim’ set but not used
[-Wunused-but-set-variable]

Thanks for remind!

:)

Remind's non-English support was written a long time ago before I
knew about UTF-8 or multibyte strings (maybe even before those existed.)

You can make the calendar wider with the -w option; just increase your
terminal width also.  Then it should fit.

Regards,

David.

Thanks; I will apply them.  I don't believe any of the strings come from
user-input, but it's a good idea to patch them anyway.

I've already applied your housekeeping patches in my git repo; thanks for
bringing them to my attention.

Yes, that's an unused variable and can be nuked.  Thanks.

Regards,

David.

Caldav possible?

hello,

I'm new to remind and would like to know whether there is a possibility to work with an caldav calendar? I'm
syncing between different machines and have a zarafa server running, which offers a caldav/ical
calendar that can be integrated in different clients. 

I found that downloading the calendar and converting with ical2rem works, but there is no way to send
changes back to the server. Or am I missing a great feature?

Thank you for this wonderful software!

There is a rem2ics script here:
http://mark.atwood.name/code/rem2ics/

But I have no idea how good it is.  Going from Remind to iCal is problematic
because Remind can express things that are impossible to express using iCal.
(For example, "Remind me of something on the second full moon of a month
that happens to fall on a Sunday.")

So rem2ics is necessarily lossy.

Regards,

David.

Re: Caldav possible?

Thanks Dave, I have tried the script but conversion is not very good, a lot of dates end up having no
duration/end time set. Double conversion from and back to ics seems very error prone, that's why I'm
looking for a different way.
