I have been using Evolution for it's calendar for some time now. But every time I open the calendar, it asks for my email password. So today, I had enough, I deleted my email account from evolution(I use a different program for emails) but now I can't open evolution because it wants to add an email account.

Is there a work arround for this? Since I can't manage my calendar anymore(unless I add an email account).

I've been struggling with this for a while too, I've seen this as an idea on Ubuntu Brainstorm, but still just an idea.

I suggest you try using Sunbird, but otherwise, I don't know if there's a solution to this problem.

I saw the idea, but I like evolution because I just have to click my clock to see what's up. And it must be compatible with my Google account, since I have to share with my android calendar. But thanks for the reply. Maybe someone has a work arround, if not, I will select your answer in a few hours. – Dr_Bunsen Nov 2 '12 at 15:56
Hope you find a workaround. (if you find one, I'll go back to evoution) :) – Evandro Silva Nov 2 '12 at 16:00
since no other replies, your answer seems to be the best ;) – Dr_Bunsen Nov 3 '12 at 10:45
