Why do you want to run that program as root?

And why does your screenshot look like an Ubuntu desktop?

Please post the full, exact error message.

To get the message in in English run it like this:
Code: Select all
LC_ALL=C gnome-calendar

You shouldn't have to run it as root.

Ah, I see.

Try adding your user to the systemd-journal group:
Code: Select all
# gpasswd -a $user systemd-journal

^ Replace $user with your actual user name.

I wonder want language you do speak/write fluently, maybe we can find or point you toward someone that speaks the same language and is willing to help translate ,..
What do you call it in your language ?
I also think you should just do as requested by Head_on_a_stick:
Please post the full, exact error message.

To get the message in in English run it like this:
Code: Select all
LC_ALL=C gnome-calendar

OPen a terminal, copy paste the command exactly like he shows, press enter, then show us the output.
And also answer the questions he asks:
And why does your screenshot look like an Ubuntu desktop?

I was wondering the same my self, it certainly does not look like any Debian desktop that I have seen, so I decided not to bother,... answer the questions, and follow the instructions give, otherwise no one is going to be able to help.
