    Nevermind. I decided to give my machine a full reboot and evolution is now working. It must have had some process running I was unable to identify.

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    The publishing options for evolution seem to be:
    1.daily
    2.weekly
    3.manual

    I tried googling for changing the interval of the calendar publishing to something a bit shorter, but came up with nothing. Anyone know if that is possible?

    I enter a new appointment in Evolution, then click Action > Publish Calendar Information and it goes to Google right away.

    thanks, thanks, thanks
    works great      
    Ah, I can't get this one to work.... My primary calendar works, but the additional calendars don't. I can add another primary calendar (my girlfriend's) by using her username/password, but not by this method. Any help? Do I NEED to allow public access on her account? Would rather not, of course.

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    Interesting posts here.

    I too am curious as to why Evolution does some of the things with my Google calendar the way it does. If someone can help me, I would be most appreciative.
    Background. Running 9.04 Jaunty. Evolution 2.26. Using this from my home desktop when working from home for access to printers, scanner etc.

    We run Google Apps for our work and the email(IMAP)on Evo runs fine. Google does a great job on the spam so the junk filter issues posted elsewhere really does not affect me.

    I can create an event in both Evo and Google and they publish to each other. However, in opening up the calendar, NUMEROUS events do not publish to Evo from Google. It seems hit and miss for some reason. Daily events, hourly, invites from others, private events, multiple days...some publish and some do not.

    Does anyone have a fix here? My plan would be to migrate my work notebook to Ubuntu from XP and use Evo (we use TB at work in Windows) and sync my Treo to that directly, however the calendar issue is the killer for me. I sync the Google calendar directly to my Treo now using CompanionLink and it works great, however nothing for Linux.

    Looking forward to any advice.
    Thanks,

    tdmoore

    That's correct, but to make sure your changes get published back to Google, you also need to replace this:

    23.File: /calendar/dav/username@gmail.com/events

    Example:
    23.File: /calendar/dav/jhg6778gg867hhuiy98hh@group.calendar.google.com/events

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I have this problem too. With five CalDAV calendars, it's five passwords every time I start Evolution!

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    There are 3 places withing Evolution, where you should have the "Remember password" question checked:

    Receiving Email
    Sending Email
    Publishing Calendar

    Double check your settings

    Thanks for this howto Cuba71, it helped me a lot. But I was having a problem with my password. Evolution kept asking for the passwords for all my calendars (5 of them). I found the solution on launchpad.

    the trick is to enter the url of the calendar in the following way (step 8 in your howto):
    caldav://username@www.google.com/calendar/dav/username@gmail.com/events

    And here the username is without "@gmail.com"

    and fill in the username (step 10):
    username@gmail.com

    I also did not have to do step 13-30 publishing of the new appointment when instantaneously.

    Thanks again because of your howto I finally got everything the way I want
