The PGF/TikZ package contains a quite decent calendar library. Within
LyX you have to use ERT as it is a LaTeX package, but its relatively
easy to use.
I have found http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/ to give a few good
examples, i have pgf installed but do I need to install TikZ as a
separate package, under ubuntu ?
or are they one package.
Hm... usually they are shipped as one package. However, historically
PGF was first and previous versions of PGF were also shipped with
latex-beamer (by the same author), so I am not completely sure.
Will have a read of the tutorial and information files.
TikZ comes with an impressive amount of documentation and examples;
there are several calendar examples in pgfmanual.pdf.
