I’m facing some problems and I’m so new to this *DAV thing that I don’t even know how to look for a solution: any help will be appreciated. I’m knew to Evolution, Radicale, DAVx5 and calendar apps!
The Radicale server is up and I’ve configured nothing (I just installed the package and ran the daemon). http://localhost:5232/ shows “Radicale works!”. Then in Evolution I did New > Calendar, chose type CalDAV, named it Foo, chose a color and entered the latter URL. After this I created an appointment in this calendar.
First problem (not related to DAVx5 but may be relevant): if I try to move the appointment in the grid, I get an error message in Evolution “Failed to modify an event in the calendar “CalDAV : Foo”. Cannot modify calendar object: Failed to put data: HTTP error code 412 (Precondition Failed)”
Next, in DAVx5 I add an account that I call “me”, choose Advanced login, type in the URL “http://(the_laptop_IP):5232/”. Under the CALDAV tab I then see one calendar whose name is “/”. I tap the sync button.
Then I open a calendar app; I’ve tried Etar and Simple Calendar. In both the appointment show up, but:
- the calendar name is “/”, not “Foo”,
- the color is wrong (in DAVx5, in parameters of account “me” both toggles in the CalDAV section are on).
And when I go back to Evolution and refresh, the appointment is gone!
Can you help me?
Note: on Palm I had categories to categorize (!) my appointments and give them a color. AFAIU this should be possible under the CalDAV protocol, but the few calendar apps I have tested seem not to offer this capability (Simple Calendar has this but only for its internal calendar), so I resolved to resort to separate calendars to emulate categories. Am I right?
