    Shared Calendars are not in my gnome gmail Calendar


    Hello everyone,
    I just installed Antergos on my new asus ux330 machine, and i can’t find the shared calendars that were shared from my collegues on Gmail! I’ve tried to install the Gnome shell google calendar from AUR but it is not working and according to google, the error that i am getting in the terminal (404) indicates that it’s depricated.
    Is there any calendar that can show shared calendars? I have them on my Android, Macbook Pro and i really need it on my Antergos.
    Thanks in advance,
    Jama

    If you configure gnome-online-accounts you can watch google-calendar with a click on Date/Time at top panel…

    gnome-calendar app is pretty bad, as a standalone app without any enhance features…
    I was used to Rainlendar but it is also way unenhanced…
    There is a new GTK3 based app called California i try at the moment…but failes to build…
    as you can see it is almost the same like gnome-calendar:
    [left=gnome-calendar right is california]

    Hey thanks! But that doesn’t answer my question. My main problem is that i can’t get the Shared Calendars that were shared by others to my gmail account . Aynways, I guess all calendars under archlinux are relying on the gnome-google package, the problem is, the gnome-google is not updated since 2014 i think and that is the problem.
    Running the script: python gnome-shell-google-calendar.py gives an 404 error that according to google, this is depricated.

    Yes true… now i understand!
    I check this and it seems to be a unsolved thing… As i get open calendars showen up private shered calendars does not show up.
    I try to import shared-calendar-url.ics inside gnome-calendar but it shows error calendar not found…

    So problem is that google explicit forbit to use shared calendars inside external apps…
    i find this shell-extension >>
    gnome-shell-calendar-open but i do not get what it should do…

    OK I found the solution. Google allows syncing Shared Calendars with CalDav on this link: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/syncselect
    That solved it. And btw, downloading California and building it from source worked just fine for me.
    Thanks anyways.
