    Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    Two Way Synchronization Google Calendar and Evolution 2.26.1 using WebDAV/CalDAV
    Before you start, back up your Evolution settings to be safe.

    1.Define a Google calendar at www.google.com
    2.Under settings, define your calendar as public
    3.Start Evolution and go to Calendars
    4.Click New > Calendar
    5.Complete the Properties as follows:
    6.Type: choose CalDAV
    7.Name: your choice
    8.URL: caldav://www.google.com/calendar/dav/username@gmail.com/events
    9.Check the box: Use SSL
    10.Username: username
    11.Set the refresh time as desired
    12.Click OK
    13.Click Edit > Preferences > Calendar Publishing
    14.Click Add
    15.Under General:
    16.Select Publish as: iCal
    17.Select Publishing Frequency: Manual (via Action Menu)
    18.Under Sources:
    19.Click on your CalDAV calendar
    20.Click on Publishing Location
    21.Under Service Type select: Secure WebDAV (HTTPS)
    22.Server: www.google.com
    23.File: /calendar/dav/username@gmail.com/events
    24.Under Optional Information:
    25.Port: leave blank
    26.Username: username
    27.Password: password
    28.Check the box Remember Password
    29.Click OK
    30.Click Close to return to Calendars-Evolution
    Test it by entering a New Appointment
    Click on Action > Publish Calendar Information
    Go to your Google Calendar web page an hit the refresh button
    The New Appointment should show within a few seconds

    Note: Perhaps someone more experienced can explain how the whole thing works, I just find out by trial and error.

    In (8. - URL) replace username@gmail.com for the ID of the calendar.

    Example:
    caldav://www.google.com/calendar/dav/jhg6778gg867hhuiy98hh@group.calendar.google.com/events

    You don't even have to set your calendar to 'public' or share any free/busy information. You can skip position (2.)

    Running Evolution 2.26.1 and I seemed to have a "Google" option when creating a new calendar. Just fill in username etc and I was done.

    Didn't have to make the calendar public either.

    That works a treat. Only tiny gripe- Evolution asks me for a password every time I load the app, despite having the 'Remember this password' box checked.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Hi,
    i use google calendar for work, but sync with evolution 2.26.1 isn't perfect:

    1. during the sync the "alarm" is lost (..... notify me 15 minutes before)
    2. setting, in the property of calendar (google) under evolution, a time different from 30 minutes to refresh, will revert to 30 min at the next launch.

    This behavior under Jaunty X64 with italian language. I confirm that is not necessary to make the calendar public.

    Sorry for poor english and best regards from italy,
    roby

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    I tried the instructions of the first post in this thread. Now evolution will not open. When I open evolution from the command line, I get no errors, but it never returns control or opens the program. Is there any way to manually remove the settings I set up in evolution?
