Install HolidayListPlugin on VMWare Virtual Machine fails with missing Date::Calc message

I am running VMWare virtual machine downloaded from the Foswiki site with loaded Foswiki Version 1.0.9. When I load the HolidayListPlugin the system comes back with the successful installation message, but in the log it complains that the Date::Calc module cannot be found :

"2010-11-25T21:56:32Z warning | Can't locate Date/ in @INC (@INC contains: /var/www/foswiki.local/lib . /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl /var/www/foswiki.local/lib/CPAN/lib//arch /var/www/foswiki.local/lib/CPAN/lib//5.8.8/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi /var/www/foswiki.local/lib/CPAN/lib//5.8.8 /var/www/foswiki.local/lib/CPAN/lib/) at /var/www/foswiki.local/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/HolidaylistPlugin/ line 7.

The same behaviour happens for the "CalenderPlugin". Is this a known issue ? Is there a work-around available ?

Thank you for your quick response.

Some plugins have dependiecies which have to be met. In this case, it's the CPAN module Date::Calc which has to be installed which shoul dusually be done by the plugin installer. Were these plugins pre-installed or did you install them yourself?

To install the module, log in as root (on the shell, not on Foswiki) and type aptitude install libdate-calc-perl.

This was a good hint - thanks. HolidayList Plugin works now.

The CalenderPlugin still does not, though. I tried "aptitude install libcalender-simple-perl". Do you have another hint for this ?

The Perl module HTML::CalendarMonthSimple is a bit trickier as there is no Debian package available (only for unstable and testing where it's called libhtml-calendarmonthsimple-perl). To install it, you'd have to do it the CPAN way (as root):
# cpan
cpan[1]> install HTML::CalendarMonthSimple
