actually, since this felt quite good, but any events I entered into Jolla calendar will NOT sync to my google account. AGAIN. Any new news on how to get thag going again?

I'm using, and all my events are correctly synched to my Google Calendar and from my Google Calendar. The problem, for now, is that Google account always asks to re-enter credentials so often..

with me, Jolla entered events normally make it to Google calendar, but not all of them, today.

If you can provide logs of the synchronisation in which some events failed to sync correctly, I can investigate further.

To get those logs, do:

1) edit /etc/systemd/journald.conf and set RateLimitBurst=5000 and RateLimitInterval=5s then reboot if you had to change those values.

2) ssh into the device and do:

 systemctl --user stop msyncd
 MSYNCD_LOGGING_LEVEL=8 devel-su -p msyncd

3) leave that ssh terminal open, and then open a new one, in which do:

 devel-su journalctl -af | grep google-cal

4) trigger a sync via Settings->Accounts->Long-press Google->Sync.

Wait a couple of minutes then the second (journalctl) terminal should contain a lot of debug logs. Redact any personal information from them, and send the result to chris dot adams at jolla dot com.

hi, Chris. Sorry I am a bit limited.. I don't know how to 'ssh into' my device. I use a Mac and I have Linux on a emulator, but I am no crack at all. Can I do that fro terminal aswell? (Typing is a pain on the device)

ok I can open two terminal windows.. however the 2nd window does not seem to gather any news. (two minute wait) I'll try again now.
