  • File > New Calendar
  • Select ‘On the Network‘ and click next.
  • Choose the CalDAV option
  • Enter the following URL in the location bar: -

  • Select ‘Next’ and enter a name for your calendar.
  • Choose a colour too, if you so wish.
  • Sunbird will prompt you to enter your Google credentials. Do so.
  • Sunbird will then sync with Google Calendar – this can freeze the application for a little whilse so don’t worry.
  • If you have appointments in your GCal account you’ll now see them in the GNOME clock applet, too!
