I have just done a a clean install of LineageOS 17.1 (LineageOS for microG, 2020-09-21, https://lineage.microg.org/).
Setting up DAVx5 worked fine - except the permission considering tasks.
I installed OpenTasks (in German “Aufgaben”) during the setup process of DAVx5.
I then tried to grant the relevant permissions:
The first switch will not “stick” to activated, it will always reset to the state seen in the screenshot.
This leads to the following:
I then went into the system’s permission settings for DAVx5 which looks like this:
As you can see all permissions have been granted.
Looking at the additional permission reveals:
So DAVx5 also has the permission for tasks.
Let’s look at the permissions for OpenTasks:
OpenTasks also has been granted all permissions.
Also looking at additional permissions here we see:
Looks wonderful, right?
But it does not work.
Not so wonderful.
Looking at the permission overview for tasks we see at first:
If I activate “Show system apps” in the burger menu we get:
Oh, there they are. But DAVx5 and OpenTasks are no system apps.
And still task synchronisation does not work.
I did not have this problem in previous builds of LOS 16 and 17.1, just now in this fresh install - which I find especially irritating.
I would be grateful for any ideas.
