Thanks, Frank.

Oddly, I have the executables /usr/bin/kalarm and /usr/bin/kalarmd 
installed (they're part of kdepim, of which korganizer is also a part), 
but I don't have the package 'kalarm' installed.  But it's always been 
this way, AKAICT... for years.  And the last update to the kdepim 
package was Tue 13 Sep 2011.  The failure with the alarms just started 
in the past couple months or so.  And you're right, I don't have the 
icon you spoke of in my notification area.  Hmmm.

Restarted KOrganizer, the icon came back, along with two months worth of 

There's still a puzzle though.  My uptime now is 21 days, meaning I 
rebooted 3 weeks ago, meaning that KOrganizer was restarted then of 
course.  But restarting it then didn't bring up the icon (as far as 
anyone notices a few pixels like that) and didn't start the daemon which 
brings up the alarms.  So there's still something weird going on, but at 
least it's working for the moment and I know to watch for the icon.

Thanks much.
