Thread: Calendar app 'california' for Leap

  1. #1

    Default Calendar app 'california' for Leap

    With 13.2, there was an elegant little Gnome calender application, California, which enabled one to use the Gnome calender without having to install the clunky, all-singing, all-dancing Evolution browser. This application doesn't seem to be available, however, in the current Leap repos. Attempting to install it via tar gives half a dozen apparently unfulfillable dependencies, and installing the 13.2 version, then trying to trick it into using later versions of libraries through symbolic links, gives only mixed results: it displays existing calendar events, but doesn't allow entering new ones.

    Has anybody had any success in installing California on Leap? That notwithstanding, is there any chance that Leap developers might get around to updating the code and adding it to the repos some time in the future?

    If you're having problems finding dependencies, list them and others will tell you how to find them(They're likely all available somewhere).

    You also need to always describe where you obtained your source.
    Best way for this kind of thing is to clone the github project and then follow the project instructions
    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/GNOME/california

    Hi
    I've updated to the latest build 0.4.0, plus a few patches (bgo#743961) as well as clean a few things up.
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...ING/california

    Please test and will see if it can get into GNOME:Apps again...

    YES! It works great, thank you so much. Incidentally, the 'missing dependencies' turned out not to be so missing. The configure script was apparently simply not able to find many of the libraries, most of which turned out to be already installed. Apparently I needed to set an environment variable or pass the appropriate 'dir' argument to the script for it to know where to look. While I was trying to figure all this out, however, your new build arrived. Much easier! Again, thanks!
