Adding Google Calendars to Evolution

Filed under: Uncategorized — mifan @ 10:21 am

Evolution Calendar offers a great way to manage tasks – reminders and all. And the popup tasklist in the taskbar is even greater. Google calendar on the other hand also offers a wide variety of benefits for an online calendar client. Here is a way to see all your Google calendar items from within Evolution – and thus letting you go offline with your GCal stuff in Evolution.

Ok – there seems to be some bugs overall which restricts 2 way sync between Google Calendar and Evolution (2.22.31) – however for simple calendars, here goes:

1. Create your calendar in Google Calendar
2. In the Evolution (2.22) mail client, select New->Calendar
3. Set the type of the calendar to Google
4. Give a name for your Calendar such as “Conquest of the Shire Timeline”
4. Enter your google account username in the Username section
5. Click OK, and enter your Google account password in the resulting box
6. Sit back and view your Google calendar in Evolution

There seems to be some bugs in accessing multiple calendars from the same account too. Anyways, as a workaround, you can add calendars as ICAL:

1. In your Google calendar account, within the specific calendar settings, copy
the ICAL URL.
2. In Evolution, create a new calendar of the type “On the Web”
3. Enter the ICAL URL in the URL section: replace the ‘http://’ section with ‘webcal://’
4. The other steps are similar to the Google setup given above

Enjoy…

  3. Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Appreciate it!

  5. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  6. The laser armpit hair removal works better if you allow the hairs to grow 2 weeks previous to the
    laser treatment. About six treatments are recommended for the entire body and eight for facial
    parts, usually with a space of six to eight weeks time in between procedures.
    It’s aim is to replace outdated forms of hair removal.
    It’s not much different then wearing black in the sunlight.
    Anytime there is an inflammatory stimulus, melanocytes
    might be triggered to produce extra melanin as part
    of the healing process.
