I did a clean installation of Oneiric and since Evolution is not included by default, I added it by doing apt-get install evolution. However, when I try to create a new calendar and sync it with Google I only get three options: "On This Computer", "On the Web" and "Weather". There used to be an option to include google calendars but it is not there now. It appears, though, in another computer that I upgraded from Natty so I assume that the option still exists. What package am I missing?

  • @jorge castro isn't dupe, because the option to add google calendar is not available as you can see in picture number 1 and you have to activated.... for some reason this is not automatic....
