I face this issue since beginning. After adding my google calendar, I can no longer start maya-calendar and get same errors. Removing ~/.local/share/evolution directory didn't help. Playing with dconf entries also didn't help.

I've got the same issues (also after adding a Google-Calendar) and I'm using the German localization too.

Hi guys,
try this, read my comments in #11, for the crash on start issue, and #13, for importing calendars:
I hope it helps you.

Hi guys,

same thing here. I already tried the above mentioned workarounds with no effect.

Here's what terminal replies after launching maya:

[_LOG_LEVEL_INFO 15:44:16.552528] Application.vala:155: Kalender version:

I've now added a midori-wrapper with google calendar to my dock but this is no replacement for Maya. I hope this can be fixed soon...

Thank you in advance!

--> Update to my above post:

Bug seems to be directly connected to Google. CalDav import works as usual with other host!

I imported a Google calendar (it is not an English calendar) and I got the same issue.
On a fresh installation of Loki stable.

Can you please provide a backtrace of where the issue is occuring?

gdb maya-calendar
-- try and reproduce the bug, and when the bug occurs, type in the next line --

And paste the output here.

Stefan A. B. (steveb13687) wrote :

I installed eOS Loki recently. Google calendar is working fine...

For this reasons i can't provide the requested information.

Rather than add another "me too", I'd like to post the needed backtrace.

There are a few errors on my install in the console, but some of the warnings and one fatal error can be removed by installing evolution-data-server-online-accounts.

Sean Seago, can you confirm eds-online-accounts is not installed on a fresh Loki? Can you please file a separate report for this.

Thank you for your backtrace.

having exact same behaviour as speedkreature. One error about credentials is gone, once eds-online-accounts is installed (which is not present on fresh install, which I am on).

The other error about timezone remains like in the posted stacktrace.

I'm having the exact same problem, but just with one of my subcalendars. I'ts the only calendar I have shared to other persons, may this be a problem?
(Although calendars shared from others to me are working....)
The rest is the same between all of them...

I'm on Loki.

Maya calendar closes the moment I open it, too. Fresh Elementary (Loki) install. Calendar opened and stayed opened until I configured a Google account with app password. Backtrace follows:
