I know that you can integrated google calendar with evolution, but it doesn't seems to work for me. Once I add something to my google calendar, it never updates with evolution.

and please don't send me to this link because I follow the instructions a lot of times and nothing works.

I just installed Calender indicator. It's integrated in the top bar of ubuntu and it just shows as a small calender indicator with the date in it. If you click it you can see your google calender which you add on first startup of the program.

I would suggest to try it, it is very small and very handy.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
sudo apt-get update && apt-get install calender-indicator

Next just run it from the Dash. Enjoy!
