Ubuntu – Use the Terminal to Display a Calendar

Posted December 14, 2008 by Rob Rogers in UNIX software

I am always needing to have quick access to a calendar to set deadlines and plan out various tasks. Using Ubuntu’s Terminal, you can quickly pull up a calendar of any month or year (past, present, or future).

1. Open a Terminal window.

2. To view a single month, execute the following Terminal command (make sure to input both the desired month and year}:

cal december 2008

To view an entire year, execute the following Terminal command (make sure to input the desired year):

cal 2009

To view last month, this month and next month, execute the following Terminal command:

cal -3
