I tried to add an event in Ubuntu 13.10 default calendar using the "add event" option. When I press that button, nothing happens. Can anyone tell me a solution to this?

I'm experiencing this, too. I don't know, this seems to be a bug. Look → here for further instructions about this. – IndexOutOfBoundsException Nov 11 '13 at 14:34

enter link description hereThe "Add Event..." button seems to be a vestigial feature from when Ubuntu used Evolution Mail instead of Thunderbird Mail, which is used today.

To be able to use that button again, I think, you'll have to install Evolution Mail and Calendar from the Software Center.

I have intalled Evolution Mail. There were other similar application as you mentioned>> Evolution Mail and Calander Evolution Mail Then also nothing matters. – Habi Nov 11 '13 at 14:54
I thought the missing calendar was just the problem because one isn't installed by default. I don't know anymore. Sorry. – kelvinilla Nov 11 '13 at 17:08
sudo apt-get install evolution. Then open evolution calendar & add some events. It will appear under clock menu. – Khurshid Alam Dec 9 '13 at 22:33

I use Korganizer, the calendar of KDE. It is available in ubuntu software center. In addition, you can find here instructions to sync this calendar with google calendar (if you are interested in).
