Quickly Find Out Calendar For Any Year Or Month Using Terminal In Linux Mint/Ubuntu

Here is a super quick way to find out all the dates of any specific month and a specific year by using a single Terminal command.

1. Open Terminal and type (say you need to see all the dates for December of this year) :

cal -m dec

Calendar Listing From Terminal

For seeing it for any specific year, simply add the year to the above command :

cal -m dec 2012

Month And Year Specific Calendar

This shows the days and dates for month of December 2012.

You can use the cal command to list a whole monthly calendar for any year all through the Terminal.

cal 2011

Calendar For Whole Year

Quicker and geekier then to click Date/Time and navigate to specific dates and days, isn’t it ? 🙂
