I've just added Google Calendar account in Korganizer and it works fine, but these events don't show up in the Clock widget. Is it possible?

Note: this question is about KDE.

There are some known bugs with Korganizer not displaying recurring calendar events from GCal. There are several workarounds which usually involve running shell scripts with cron in order to sync Google calendars locally.

It's not showing anything at all. Do you have it displaying any event? – int_ua Oct 16 '12 at 2:06
Yeah, for me it at least displays all events, it's just that recurring ones don't show up in the menu bar. – Nik Reiman Oct 16 '12 at 6:55
in the Clock widget? – int_ua Oct 16 '12 at 12:14
Yeah, exactly ping @int_ua – Nik Reiman Oct 16 '12 at 13:04
Turns out I was using some old method to add the Google account. I've deleted it and re-set new one. Now it works. Thanks :) – int_ua Oct 16 '12 at 22:30

Old thread I know but still...

Once you have added the google account to korganizer and have it all sync'd up you should be able to see your calendars. You then need to do as Nik Reiman said and right click on clock ->Digital clock settings ->Calendar ->Add check to "Show events".

I then found that to actually see the results come up I had to skip back a month and then forward, it then refreshed the events in the widget.

Try this: ->right click on clock ->Digital clock settings ->Calendar ->Add check to "Show events"
