Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

It worked a few days ago and now it throws me this error, while I click on show calendar:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/share/calendar-indicator/", line 361, in menu_show_calendar_response
    cd = CalendarWindow(self.googlecalendar,calendar_id=self.calendar_id)
  File "/usr/share/calendar-indicator/", line 233, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/calendar-indicator/", line 272, in set_date
KeyError: 'summary'

I have ubuntu 13.04 OS

Does anyone know what's wrong and how to fix it?

you can solve your issue with re-installing the your terminal and type as

sudo apt-get install --reinstall calendar-indicator

I tried to uninstall and install it again but it didn't work, but now, and I don't now how, it started to work. I think it has something to do with the graphic's drivers because when I came back to the Nouveau's open source drivers it started to work again. But I can't explain why – Alekhios Aug 11 '13 at 23:31
good news then , enjoy using it. – Raja Aug 12 '13 at 13:08

Have seen a similar issue when trying to switch to a calendar shared by another google account with mine:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/calendar-indicator/", line 355, in menu_preferences_response
  File "/usr/share/calendar-indicator/", line 233, in update_menu
    self.menu_events[i].set_label(event.get_start_date_string()+' - '+short_msg(event['summary']))
KeyError: 'summary'

only solution is to never select that calendar or 'all calendars' in preferences.. To get it working again, I just deleted everything in ~/.config/calendar-indicator and started over.
