I reported this bug to Daniel Vratil in 2011. No Progress in this. I dont know, whats the problem, but I really hard need this feature. So for me the only possibility to have a synchable calendar on plasma, also when I go offline is chrome. This sucks. SCNR
Comment 3 kai.straube 2016-03-22 11:03:53 UTC
Sorry for my comment. What I really meant is: the behavior have changed, but it is not usable because the new behavior is also not correct.

Absolutely no progress on this bug. It's very disappointing.
I'm currently on Ubuntu 16.04 with korganizer 15.12.3.
It works brilliantly in Thunderbird/Lighting with Google calendar add-on.
Also the event calendar plasmoid for Plasma 5 syncs events like a charm.
Comment 6 Lemmiwinks 2016-08-19 10:15:56 UTC
Still no luck with 16.04.3 in Fedora 24 now. I think the whole connection to the Google api is broken, as there are multiple bug reports concerning Google calendar etc.. Please fix this.
Comment 7 Lemmiwinks 2016-12-28 07:56:46 UTC
It also happens with any CalDav calendar source or also with Google calendar imported as CalDav calendar not using the Google Calendar and Tasks resource.
How much would I have to pay to get this long, outstanding bug fixed? It would make KOrganizer 100% usable again.

What is the state of this bug? Could someone at least state if this will be resolved soon. Very annoying bug and the only one which makes KOrganizer unusable for me.
Comment 10 kai.straube 2018-02-20 21:21:29 UTC
As I wrote: no progress at all since 2011! There seem 
s to be no hope for it. I also very sad about it, it makes korganizer unusable for me too. But...

Don't know what to add except «same for me». How could we help getting this fixed ?

It is nearly unbelivable that this issue is solved ;) Thank you very much! No I will be able to use Korganizer again.

I would link to ask to reopen this bug because I am having this issue right now. I can provide more information if required.
