What Icon Set and Window Theme are you using?

hey! thank you! :)

@mike pass:
The window borders are from Nimbus theme, and icons are from Ubuntu Studio theme. You can find nimbus theme here : http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Nimbus+(Ubuntu+and+Debian)?content=54755 and Ubuntu Studio theme in Ubuntu repositories.

@lennart : no problem :)

Excellent. But, I run SuSe 10.1 and my evolution-webcal is in /opt/gnome/evolution-webcal/evolution-webcal

Just in case someone wanted to find it, you could run this command:
cd /
sudo find . -name evolution-webcal

I'm no Linux expert, but that worked for me.

Jeff said...

Oh I messed up the location it's actually:
/opt/gnome/lib/evolution-webcal/evolution-webcal

Hi, i can read from the calendar but i can't write to it from evolution, is that normal? is there a way to solve it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards.

@factoriadigital.com :
I normaly don't use Evolution, but I tried several things after your comment and I also wasn't able to write to Google calendar .. Sorry, I don't know any workarounds.

However, I might advise you to use Thunderbird with 'Lightning' and 'Provider for Google Calendar' plugins for mail and calendar. With these plugins, you can read&write to Google Calendar.

for some strange reason a few weeks ago the times listed jumped back 7 hours... so what is scheduled for 10am in google shows up as 3 am on the gnome calendar.
any suggestions? thanks!

larry;
All I can think is that you have set the timezone wrong in one (or both) of your system and Google Calendar.

I think I'm missing something here. I open the terminal window typed in what you said,then another window popped up asking how many hours before it refreshes. I confirmed that window then nothing! What have I missed out?

Hello,


thanks for the tip.
I was actually looking for something like a gDesklet app, but this is great too.

Is it possible to subscribe to more than one Gcal calendars?

I have the same problem. The time zone is set to Europe/Stockholm in both Google Calendar and on my system, but my events show up one hour late in the GNOME calendar.

Has anyone found out how to fix this?
