I am using XUBUNTU.

I am using the orage calendar application set up like a widget on my desktop.

However, whenever I open any window of any application, this widget always stays on top and hides sections of the active application.

Is there a way to avoid this and make sure that orage widget always stays below the active window?

orage calendar app

This is a smart lightweight calendar app perfect to keep on your desktop.

If not already installed:

orage Install orage

There are a number of options you can configure in the preferences for this application.

These are in its preferences. Choose from the menu Edit --> Preferences

Click the Display Settings tab and untick the option shown in the image:

Once done, any application launched or moved over Orage will not be hidden by it.

Personally I would also use the systray option in this same tab.

Using this option you can make the widget visible or hide it by just clicking the system-tray applet.
