For accessing appointments GNUmed requires "konsolekalender"
which is a KOrganizer helper program in the same vain as That program does seem to be installed
since if it cannot be detected at GNUmed startup the
KOrganizer plugin does not even load.

However, the "KOrganizer" button is indeed intended to
launch KOrganizer. I added a status message to CVS (0.3+) to
signal failure to find KOrganizer.

That makes sense, indeed.

0.2.8.x will not receive functional changes. It has been in
bugfix only mode since the release of

For one thing if it hadn't made it into 0.3.0 which is
already released it would not make it into 0.3.x. However,
it did. The age area is entirely diffent now, too. There
should be a screenshot somewhere in the list archive.

The message is generated due to those 2 unsigned documents.

It would be viewable by double-clicking but there is no

Can I see a screenshot ? Sounds like a wxpython bug.

Those are the two pages under that document.

There should be a context menu.

The edit dialog appears after the (nonexistant) content has
been routed to the display code. This is configurable.

That is dependant on the window manager behaviour.

Just so :-)

Because that's part of the bootstrapped test data :-)

GNUmed doesn't have a handler for that type of message as it
is only informational (Memo ...).

Right-clicking should reveal a context menu which allows
deleting some of the messages - not autogenerated pseudo
messages, however, of course.

See above.

Did you select another type of symbol ?  The Snellen chart
is still flakey.
