Thank you Kevin.  However I'm not seeing what you're seeing.  Mine is just 
called "Calendar" rather than KOrganizer, and I don't have the same settings 
that you do.  Certainly nothing I can use to attempt your solution.

When I open my calendar's settings, the list of categories is general, time 
and date, views, colours and fonts, group scheduling, free/busy, plugins and 
custom pages.

Perhaps I'm missing some package?
