I'm in the same case. Plus, last week even the local appointements and tasks disappeared and today, all is back, though I didn't did anything...

Same problem here...

My Google calendar is linked via CalDav. "Make available for offline use" is selected in the calendar properties. If I click on the "Work Offline" button in the bottom right corner of the Evolution window, a read-only version of the Google calendar will persist until I close Evolution. When I re-open the program, the Google Calendar is gone until I reconnect to the web. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 NBR with Evolution 2.28.1.

I upgraded 9.04 to 10.04 RC, and still have this bug. This bug makes Evolution not usable for me.

Same here with 10.04

=> successful synchronization with "Copy calendar locally for offline operation" selected
=>Appointment appears
Unplug network wire.
Close then open Evolution
=>Appointment is not here anymore, a click on the google sync calendar does not do anything, no error message either.
Plug network wire.
=>Appointement appear again.

This issue was tagged as low, however I believe it makes evolution rather useless for people using a google calendar so I would re-tag it. I had to switch to Thunderbird because of that and I'm sorry about it because I liked evolution a lot...

I think this bug was fixed in evolution 2.30.
I have been using evolution 2.30 from ppa:jacob/evo230 without problems with google calendar for 1 month .

The bug still happens in Evolution 3.32.2 but I do get an error message

"Error loading Calendar cannot open calendar: Unexpected HTTP status code 2 returned"

This is with the "copy calendar contents for offline operation" box ticked
