I just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04.1 from 16.04. I noticed that there are several (around 12) calendars associated with my Google Calendar account. I would like to disable most but not all of them.
How can I do that?

Part of the reason why I want to do that is that

  1. I'm getting prompts for passwords every time I open Calendar, which is annoying.
  2. There are duplicate entries (not sure why).
  3. I don't need information on many of these calendars on a daily basis, I can just use Google Calendar.
  • I'm having the same problem. Very irritating and I don't want Google anywhere near my computer – witenitenz Oct 19 '18 at 23:56

If you got to "Calendar Settings" you can select/click on the calendar you want to hide. Calendar Settings

Then there will be an option to display it or not display it. Display Settings

This will not fix your problem with Gnome Calendar asking for your credentials. If you want to stop that from happening, you will need to remove the online account (System Settings > Online Accounts). If this is a Google account you could generate an "application password" for Ubuntu, that would bypass two factor authentication and is designed for permanent access, which is what you for Ubuntu whereas passwords + 2FA are what you want for ephemeral web logins.

Deleting my google account did not work. I logged out & in after deleting the online account and I still have the prompts for the calendar passwords.

Deleting (including configuration files) gnome-calendar did not work either. The calendars are still there.

I think it has something to do with the evolution backend.

~/.config/evolution/sources had some files with my google account. I deleted those, logged in/out and the calendars are gone.
