  • SFOS
  • CalDAV account on private ownCloud 8.2.10
  • Accounts shows the various shared calendars OK, one entry per calendar

Calendar application shows every shared calendar in Manage Calendars multiple times. First time I noticed it there where 2 entries, the after a time 3 and now when I checked it had increased again to 4. And that of course leads to every caldav event to show up 4 times.

I haven't noticed any pattern that makes the entries to increase, a reboot didn't do it.

I have the exact same issue as well... same SFOS-version syncing to owncloud, and the number of duplicated calendars keeps increasing. Right now I'm also seeing each calendar 4 times.

The same for Nextcloud. I need to delete and add my account again every week or so. Has been like this on Sailfish forever.

Same here for calendar.

No need to add another question for this. There are several already. It has nothing to do with owncloud/nextcloud/posteo. Unfortunately the latest testbuild, in which there were hope to solve it, did not solve this calendar duplication issue.

I tried looking for this specific issue but didn't find it. My bad.

I found a workaround that cleans out multiple entries and keeps only the one synced first. Following is working for me:

devel-su -p sqlite3 /home/nemo/.local/share/system/privileged/Calendar/mkcal/db "delete from calendars where syncProfile like 'caldav-sync%' and CalendarId not in (select CalendarId from calendars c where syncDate=(select min(syncDate) from calendars where syncProfile=c.syncProfile));"

At least I can now drop obsolete entries but ofc this does not prevent the phone from creating any further, a final solution would be much appreciated.

This works, thank you! Will put it to cron as a workaround.

Worked ok, had to resync with caldav-server to get all dates back, thank you very much! I would also appreciate a final solution!! (
