Following our previous articles, Ubuntu Web Sources Lens, Ubuntu Gwibber Lens, Ubuntu Books Lens, Ubuntu Cities Scope, Ubuntu Grooveshark Scope, Ubuntu Calculator Scope and Pirate Bay Torrents Lens for Unity, today we are introducing the Ubuntu Calendar Lens for Unity.

Ubuntu Calendar Lens is a Unity Launcher plugin which allows users to quickly search and access their calendar directly from Unity, by accessing the calendar lens icon. The results are automatically filtered in Upcoming and Recent categories, and users can also manually filter the events by Personal and Birthdays & Anniversaries, and by time range.

To install the Unity Calendar Lens plugin in your Ubuntu operating system, open a terminal window (hit the CTRL+ALT+T key combination) and paste the following commands (one by one, hitting Enter after each one):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:markjtully/ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity-calendar-lens


Unfortunately, it kinda depends on Evolution, but you can also use it with Thunderbird if you install the Lightning extension. You'll have to restart your session after the installation. Be aware that it is available ONLY for Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin).
