Using AWN 0.3.9 on Ubuntu 9.10. AWN calendar applet returns the message "Unable to return calendar data from external source" when started. It is configured to read Evolution which is functioning normally. Suggestions?

Egad. I hate being the only one in the universe with a particular problem.

I'm having the exact same problem. Has anyone figured out how to fix this particular bug?

I had the same problem. The list of AWN dependances can be found at his page http://wiki.awn-project.org/Awn_Extras:Dependency_Matrix.
To make Clock/Calendar Applet work it should be enough to install python-dateutil

sudo aptitude install python-dateutil
however if you want to integrate it with Google Calendar and Evolution you should also add

sudo aptitude install python-gdata python-vobject

That didn't fix it - it can't read Google Calendar and doesn't ask me for any account details to allow it to login/retrieve/integrate with the api in any way.
