Using the component system will give you very little benefit in a text
mode environment.  You can't invoke component 'controls' as they stand
currently as they are all X-windows widgets.

You can still query the addressbook and calendar via corba though, which
is useful for a text mode client.

In the evolution source there's a command-line test program for the
calendar client that I modified to dump out the appointments I have
for the next few days.  My only problem is that it still requires X.
The gnome_init() function exits if X isn't running.  Removing that
call causes all sorts of things to break.

Is it possible to use the calendar client code without gnome/X (I'm
not so familiar with the Corba/Bonobo/Gnome programming and how they

Yeah I think so.

You might be able to get away with just calling gtk_type_init(), or
perhaps gnomelib_init(), and/or CORBA_ORB_init() ... something along
those lines.

The wombat code shouldn't require X, although it does call gnome_init,
so i dunno ...

Try contacting the author of that test program, i'm not sure if they're
active on this list.
