You know that calendar that pops up when you click on the time in the panel? I like it but I tend to keep all my events in google calendar. korganizer version is 4.4.11

Is there a way that I can get my google calendar to sync with this panel-clock calendar?


EDIT:1 It looks like what I need to do is sync google calendar with korganizer and that should do the trick, from what I understand.

EDIT:2 some answers here suggest I need this plug-in

sudo apt-get install akonadi-kde-resource-googledata

but they give no explanation on how to configure it once installed.

Akonadi (and thus KOrganizer) have direct support for Google Calendar now.

  1. Go to Settings -> Configure KOrganizer Press "General" -> "Calendars" tab -> Add
  2. In Settings: Press "General" -> "Calendars" tab -> Add Press "General" -> "Calendars" tab -> Add
  3. Search for "Google" and press "Google Calendars and Tasks" Search for "Google" and press "Google Calendars and Tasks"
  4. Press "Add" and sign in to your google account

You can do it by :

=> Open KOrganizer and navigate to Calendars (Configure KOrganizer- General- Calendars)

=> Click on ADD Select DAV Groupware Resource

enter image description here

=> Akonadi_davgroupware_resource will popup, click Cancel.

enter image description here

=> Now you will be able to add Akonadi Resource manually.

enter image description here => Under Add server configuration, choose CalDAV. Remote URL format is "https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/Calender_ID/events/ . Personal calendar_id is usually your Gmail Address . you're done.

  • Thanks @Jai . I got it working. I just had to find my ical file on the google calendar website and just add a new calendar in korganizer that syncs to the ical file. works like a charm. Wouldn't have been able to do it without your answer here - though the technique I used was not exactly the same. Mar 13, 2013 at 14:04
  • @JoshuaRobison I am glad that you have got it. It will be helpful to other users If you add your way i mean how you did it.Thank you.

  1. In Kontact, choose 'settings' in the pull-down menu at the top.
  2. Select 'configure kontact'
  3. Under the Calendar subheading highlight "general"
  4. in the right half of the windo choose the "Calendars" tab
  5. select "add"
  6. in the popup window select ICal Calendar FILE
  7. in the next popup window you need to enter the Filename and your desired display NAME. the display NAME is whatever you want it to be. The filename you have to go to your google account and look it up. Next step
  8. Log into your gmail account. In chrome (and other browsers these days?) you want to select the 'google apps' dialog. In chrome this is up in the upper right near your profile pic and it looks like an array of small boxes. 9 In the popup select (google) calendar.
  9. In the left pane of the calendar window you'll see a subheading "my calendars". Mouse over the name of your google calendar. As it turns blue, a pull-down arrow
    appears. Click that and then select 'calendar settings'.
  10. In the calendar settings screen you'll see details on your google calendar. 8
    headings down is "private address". Click on the bright green "ICAL" box and you'll see a URL link. Copy and paste this link, verbatim, into the "Filename" box in the kontact calendar settings dialog mentioned in step #7.
