Thanks for your reponse, Ingo.

I do have the KOrganizer Reminder Daemon in my System Tray, and it 
had "Reminders Enabled" checked.  However, it did *not* have "Start Daemon at 
Login" checked.So, I checked it, logged out and logged back in again.

I have an appointment tomorrow, and I had set the reminder for 2 days.  I 
assume that I should see a reminder for this appointment when I launch 
KOrganizer.  However, I do not.  (I am assuming the Reminder what be in the 
form of a pop-up window.)

In the Konsole, I executed "korgac", and checked ps to confirm that it was 
running.  However, I still do not see any reminders! 

Thanks & Best Regards
