Of no interest to Craigevil. But for others who use Google as their calendar and who are also Gnome users - this is what I did.
I only ever used Evolution to serve Google Calendar through Gnome Calendar. So I took this opportunity to do what I should have done long ago and that is integrate Google Calendar directly into Gnome Calendar.
Make sure you have Google services active in your Gnome Online Accounts settings
These instructions are for Ubuntu but work fine in Sid/Gnomehttp://www.webupd8.org/2011/09/google-c ... ation.html
Run dconf-editor and find org -> gnome -> applications -> office -> calendar and change the exec value from evolution to google-chrome https://www.google.com/calendar
or firefox https://www.google.com/calendar
or chromium or iceweasel
It took me a few goes to get the python script to successfully autostart. You need to run it manually a couple of times then it seems happy to autorun on startup.
Now on statup my Calendar is populated and when I click on Open Calendar it goes to my online calendar. With Chrome it simply opens a new tab if Chrome is already running, or starts Chrome with a single calendar tab if it is not.
So goodbye to Evolution.
