I’ve found topics about getting an
.ics URL from an /e/ account, but no topics about syncing a public
.ics calendar to the /e/ calendar application.
As a student I have an URL for an
.ics (read-only) calendar to get information about my courses and I am not able to display it in my calendar with the default application on my new /e/ phone (it works on my computer with Thunderbird and on my old iPhone). I managed to sync my personal
caldav calendar but cannot fetch this
Any solutions please ?
(By the way I notice there are no widgets for the default calendar application.)
Hi, you will need a link to the calendar like
and ICSx5 from f-droid to get the calendar synced
and SimpleCalendar from f-droid for showing the events and adding a widget to your desktop
I installed ICSx5 as you recommended, entered the
*.ics URL and it worked !
Thanks a lot !
I just need to complete downloading maps into local memory and setup is complete
(I will see if the lack of widget influences my workflow before looking for another calendar app, but I keep your suggestion in mind, thanks again)
glad to hear it. Enjoy eOS
Hi again! Good news, I found a built-in solution to get events in a widget:
- press “edit” button at the bottom of the widgets to activate cLock widget;
- swipe down the top of the screen to display the notifications and tap the current date to open the clock application;
- open the three dots menu in the top-right corner and select “widget settings”;
- select option “calendar events” to activate “next event” option and configure it as you want.
Note: The names of the buttons may not be accurate as my /e/phone language is not set to English so I wrote my approximate translations .
