    Thank you Cuba71. It never worked for me setting up a Google Calendar using the built in Google Calendar feature in Evolution. Your method works great.

    Thanks.

    Angry Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    I made all the steps you suggested but I can´t retrive the calendar.
    I looked at the properties of my google calendar and the caldav field became
    caldav://gmail.com@gmail.co@gmail.c@gmail.@gmail.o@gmail.om @gmail.o@gmail.@gmail@gmai@gma@gm@g@@www.google.co m/calendar/dav/swdinesh@gmail.com/events
    instead of my settings caldav://www.google.com/calendar/dav/swdinesh@gmail.com/events

    I´m using evolution 2.24.3 on 8.10 ubuntu 64bit version

    thank you for any help

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    Strange, after closing the Calendar publishing add or edit window, I get an error message:

    Mount of davs://myusername%40gmail.com@www.google.com/calendar/dav/mycalendarID@group.calendar.google.com/events failed: HTTP error: Not Found


    where myusername is my google calendar's real username and mycalendarID is my google calendar's real ID number.

    I double checked all input fields and still the message is appearing. Any suggestions?

    My system:
    Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala x86
    Evolution 2.28.1

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    Please, double check this instructions, it's important that you select "Secure WebDAV (HTTPS)", is the only one that works. I havent' tried 'group calendars', I'm not sure if that's a problem or not.


    Code:
    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

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    Thanks Cuba71 for your answear!
    But no better results when I use my google username instead of calendar ID. A litttttttle bit I'm happy with that because I have several google calendars and using the username I can sync only the google's primary calendar.
    Someone else getting that kind of error message, or am I the only one?

    greetings!

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    Hi all,
    Some more info that may help.

    In Karmic I set up the gmail account then went to add a new calendar. No Google option available. So, I just restarted Evolution and went to add another Calendar and Google option was there.

    Set it up and can write to my Google Calendar from Evolution without setting up all the steps mentioned here for the Publishing stuff.

    Also Can write from my Google Calendar to Evolution. Everything is syncing both ways (adding/deleting) in Karmic and Google Calendar without setting up the Publishing steps.

    Maybe it's a new thing with Evolution 2.28.1 and Karmic. It never worked for me in Intrepid so I went to Thunderbird which I love, but Thunderbird is laggy as all get out in Karmic causing Xorg to hog CPU.

    Evolution is running fast and snappy. Maybe I'll give it a drive for a while.

    Cheers,
    Brook

    Re: Syncronizing Google and Evolution Calendars

    The sync between Evo and Google Cal works for me in Evo 2.26.2 with my personal calendar only. If I am trying to import a group calendar, it fails. What I did: I added a caldav calendar with this URL:
    Code:
    caldav://www.google.com/calendar/dav/bund_6127_%48amburger+%53%56#sports@group.v.calendar.google.com/events
    After that I filled in my Google mail account user an entered pwd on request. When I am trying to use this one, it goes into an endless loop and doesn't show anything. When I am checking its properties again, the URL is cut after 60 chars.

    Can someone please check this in karmic?

    I tried the group calendar with Evo 2.28.1 in Karmic with the same results.

    The URL address gets truncated
