The Maya Calendar from Elementary OS seems really nice:

enter image description here

Has anyone been able to run it on Ubuntu ? Is it available on some repository ? After installing the dependencies, I only get a ton of error messages when I try to build it from source. This question on the official page has no positive answer yet.

    No. AFAIK now Maya requires gtk-3.12, Contractor & Granite. You have to compile it/them from source in Gnome-3.12. I don't think it can be compiled against Gtk-3.10. May 27, 2014 at 7:20
  • Yorba is working on a calendar app for GNOME named California. It is quite good (although still alpha). You can download the app and try it out. Aug 11, 2014 at 11:49

This is the way to install Mayan Calendar on Ubuntu.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install maya-calendar


  • Well, don't try this if you are a numix fans for it conflicts with some settings in numix.

If you don't want untested features use the 'stable' repo instead of 'daily'

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install maya-calendar
