I searched but did not find anything, so I'l post.
I have often posted on various fora and with Kubuntu developers about whether it would be possible to place a "background" behind the calendar, probably the day, week or month view,.
However, there are a variety of physical printouts that can be made such as "filofax" or "timetable", etc. and it might be that trying to insert an image behind "the calendar" might cause a crash in some particular kind of view.
So, I was going to ask if it would be possible to have, at some time in the future, a way to have in the configuration screen a widget that allows one to:
Edit "the header" ( the rectangle at the top that displays the correct dates for the view) :
a) maybe add an "image" in the header
b) Would it be possible to have a widget that allowes one to insert a "name" such as "woodsmoke"
c) would it be possible to have a setting to "insert owner name" ...above the dates, etc.
Just some questions and if there are coding constraints I quite understand.
However, I found the follwing in another thread.
So, in addition to the above request/question, now I can add:
Would it be possible to have a knowledgable person to post the folder/pathway for "the header" and the correct code to add an image?
OR maybe just to be able to add the owner's name?
As to an image:
It might be something like "Header Background=woodsmokeimage.png( or "vector graphic" )
Don't know, just some questions.
AND, if someone "knows" and does not want to post in the clear for fear of having people bork their systems and then complain...
I could be pm'd.

Well, I came up with a method to get the appearance of what I would like to have, and that a lot of other people want, to wit:
a) The top "date box" has, instead, the name of the person, such as when, in a work area, multiple people have printouts of when they work up on a cork board.
b) The top "date box" has, a picture and/or name of a person in the house, such as a teenager that has multiple after school activities.
The non-elegant fix:
a) When printing a week calendar, print "to file" it will produce a .pdf.
b) Open the .pdf in a graphic manipulation program of choice and also make a "box" that will fit in the date box at the top, place the name of the person, picture, whatever in the box.
c) Place the newly made text/picture, box etc. to fit within the date box, flatten and print.
GIMP now has a "transparency bucket fill".
It would be tedious to do but one could fill each of the "day" boxes of the calendar, it will leave the text in tact such as: "12, VollyBall 3- 4" and then place a large image behind that calendar the image will show through and the date and appointment information will be there also.
Now, yes, this is tedious, but a calendar with an image behind it can be made.
First, and foremost, MY CONTINUED APPRECIATION to the KDE development team! The first and foremost thing being having a functional calendar.!
