How to remove events from KDE calendar

Something that I know many of us do when we install KDE and configure it is precisely this, remove the events, holidays that the calendar shows us:


To indicate that we do not want to see these events (since we only want to see the days and months) we must right-click on the panel clock:


Then in the window that opens, we must go to the Calendar tab, and there we remove the mark from where it says Show Events:

The detail is that this alone was not enough for me at least, in my case I also had to look in the Select column for the one that said Days off or Information, because it was useless to uncheck before showing events, if I did not change where said Information or Days off to Not used, then events would simply continue to show:

preferences-panel-calendar-do not use

Once everything is set to Not used, it is a matter of accepting the changes and voila, we will have the calendar without showing dates or holidays.

Anyway, nothing more to add, this may seem something too simple but I know that I am not the only one who wanted to remove the events and KDE did not pay attention to it 😀

    Very useful tip. Also, I already plan to replace my dear Debian on my other old PC with Slackware 14, in which I will put KDE.

    I once read something about editing the events file, to add or remove holidays to your liking. Unfortunately, I don't remember where.

    Apparently I'm the only one who likes KDE to show me the holidays.

      No, you're not. I like them too.

      Well, there are now 3 of us, it is the most useful that the KDE calendar has and that I have not managed to emulate in Xfce.

        Yep, in desktop gadgets there is no one who beats KDE (not even Windows 7 or Android with its chillion of widgets in the Play Store).

          That's true. KDE is a desktop environment that will make anyone fall in love with its insane ease of customization and efficiency.

            I did not like KDE at first because I found it too robust (but not heavy), but after taking a good look at it you can see that its robustness comes from the fact that it is practically a suite that provides a complete desktop experience ... in other words, makes me feel like I'm wearing the KDE operating system instead of an ordinary distribution with an X desktop environment.

    What is that issue (plasma?) That drives windows? is that it reminds me a lot of the gtk of linux mint, it looks amazing

      The theme that handles the windows is not from Plasma, it is from Kwin .. Look for it on, it is called KElementary and it is for Aurorae.

        And speaking of Kwin, in Slackware KWin already comes by default, and the truth is that it has convinced me to use it in that distro because of how fast it runs compared to other distros like Debian.

        Thanks Elav! That theme looks great, I think this weekend I will install KDE fedora to test it 😀

          And speaking of KDE, I am finally installing my Slackware with KDE in Virtualbox within Debian Wheezy.

    Well, apart from holidays ... I add that it also shows me my google calendar events: P. Both on the mobile and on the pc, without the warnings I am lost 😛

    My only complaint about kde is that none of the alternative themes to oxygen, I like ... not even the ones based on bespin xD
