    Thats the way we did it last year. The current version has a “Google Calendar” option when creating a calendar. You enter username and password, it shows all available calendars, you choose, done. Two way sync works also.

    Like Patrick says, in Lucid’s Evolution (2.28.3) you can do this in 6 simple steps and WITHOUT making your Google calendar public!

    Following the above instructions or the current UBUNTU instructions or the current Evolution instructions only gets me one way sync (Evolution to Google Calendar to iPhone). Updates on Google Calendar or iPhone show up in each, but not in Evolution.

    Running Ubuntu 10.10,Evolution 2.30.3

    If it’s not working try to us:
    Under Service Type select: Secure WebDAV (HTTP) and NOT HTTPS 🙂
