[solved] Evolution 3.0.2 + google calendar, any success?

Hi there,

I have been trying to sync evolution with google calendar for the last couple of days (not full time, though tongue ). Google email (imap+) and contacts are working fine, but not calendar(s):

I can create a webcal entry which synchronises all right, if I don't chose the "secure connection" but the calendar is read only.
If I create a google calendar, it doesn't sync, calendar stays empty no matter what.

So did anyone managed to get this working (ie google calendar on evolution with write access)? And would you be willing to share your wisdom??

Many thanks

Joel

Hi,

i've tried this a couple of days ago without any success. Also, Evolution crashes everytime i try to open the calendar. So i have to use Thunderbird + Lightning right now.
If you get it working, please let me know... As of this, im a big fan of Evolution.

Re: [solved] Evolution 3.0.2 + google calendar, any success?

Having the same problem.  Evolution shows the following error everytime I try to open/sync my Google calendar:

Cannot open calendar: Unexpected HTTP status code 6 returned (Error reading data from TLS socket: The TLS connection was non-properly terminated.)

It's strange but if I right-click on the very same calendar and in properties dialog press Retrieve List, Evolutions successfully loads calendar names associated with the account.

Try downgrading gnutls....there was recent update that broke several other pieces of software. Perhaps that's the issue? (untested...I don't run evolution)

Re: [solved] Evolution 3.0.2 + google calendar, any success?

Hi Everyone,

Looks like we are all fighting with the same problem. Thanks to your input, Firecat53, we are making some progress:

Here is the good news: Evolution google calendar sync works if you downgrade gnutls to 2.8.6 and glib-networking 2.28.6 smile
Here is the bad news: downgrading causes xfce4-mailwatch plugin and Chromium to fail loading - and maybe others, I gave up and re-upgraded gnutls at that point sad

So at least we know where the problem lies (gnutls). Let's hope a new release will resolve it. By the way, where is the best place to check / open a bug report: gnutls or arch??

Thanks for your help

Joel

Re: [solved] Evolution 3.0.2 + google calendar, any success?

Actually... it does (sort of) work:

Close evolution
Downgrade gnutls to 2.8.6 and glib-networking to 2.28.6 (get them via http://arm.konnichi.com/search/)
Restart evolution
Create your google calendars, they should sync and be writeable. The rest is b0rked (Chromium, etc)
Reupdate your gnutls and glib-networking - your calendar still work as expected and Chromium is back to normal
Never create or delete any more calendar tongue

Hope this helps someone smile

Actually not. Forget my last post, it doesn't work anymore once you've upgraded gnutls & glib-networking again... hmm

@jcornuz:  At least you could watch your calendar sync even only once :-)  Even after downgrading (and before upgrading back) I got the same weird error.  Thanks anyway,

Bahman,

It actually works perfectly (both evolution and chromium) if you downgrade gnutls to 3.0.0-2 keep glib-networking to 2.28.7-4. You may want to restart to make sure the good version is picked up but I have been testing that combination with success for a few hours (see also the bug report linked previously).

Marking that thread solved for now...

Re: [solved] Evolution 3.0.2 + google calendar, any success?

@jcornuz:  It works!  I was using gnutls-2.8.6 and glib-networking-2.28.6 which you mentioned above.  But your last post made it clear: glib-networking-2.28.7-5 from http://pkgbuild.com/~ioni/glib-networking/ and gnutls-3.0.0-2 from http://arm.konnichi.com/search .

Thank you.

FWIW, it's now solved with glib-networking (2.28.7-4) and gnutls (3.0.2-1) both in repositories.  So there's no need to manually install any packages.  Just update your system.

It's not working with the packages mentioned above, same error again. I guess we'll have to wait for an update.

There's more on this issue (Google calendar in Evolution) in https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=137444&p=5. The problem lies in gnutils 3.0.17. For now you can happily downgrade to 3.0.15 and everything should be OK. From the thread they seem 'on the issue' hopefully resolved before they roll out Gnome 3.4.

The thing that worked for me was downgrading gnutls to its 3.0.15-1 version. Now waiting for a final solution... Thanks for the help

Upgrading gnutls to 3.0.18-1 solved the problem here.
