What would be the best way to sync my mac calendar with Jolla? I am trying sync evolution but I don't get it. I have an account with a service called fruux but I do not know how to sync my fruux with my joola. I used to be able to sync fruux with n9. I don't feel like opening another account with something like ownCloud but will do if it is last resort. any suggestions? cheers

EDIT: In the new release 1.0.7 Saapunki, Fruux is one of the provided new CalDAV accounts which should make use of Sync Evolution unnecessary. I have entered my Fruux-account details on Jolla and it did sync my calendar from Fruux. Unfortunately, it took only the months old calendar entries from the Fruux server and overwrote my Jolla calendar with it, i.e. I lost a lot of entries existing only on the Jolla (the backup I created before that is not helpful, because it doesn't backup the calendar)! By syncing, I would mean that a sophisticated protocol such as CalDAV can check what is there and merge existing entries instead of just overwriting. What would be the way to do this right? Usually, for adding a new device to Fruux sync, you do this from their homepage, but they don't have a template for Jolla yet. If you choose a generic CalDAV template there, you get a code that you're supposed to enter on your device, but that is obviously not how the account preset provided by Jolla is meant to work, is it (I wouldn't know where exactly to enter that code in Sailfish)?

I installed my own ownClould service locally (on my PC, I guess you can do the same for your mac), then I sync my contacts and calendar from my N9. Use sync evolution to get them to jolla phone. I did the same with ownNotes too, it works great and I am in control.

I am trying sync evolution but I don't get it.

SyncEvolution should work just as well with Fruux as with ownCloud. They both use the same Sabre\DAV library. One of the founders of Fruux - Evert Pot - actually wrote the library.

What are your problems with it? Maybe we can help.

In order to have syncEvolution working I have in my settings:

SyncURL http://192...../owncloud/remote.php/
Calendar DB http://192...../owncloud/remote.php/caldav/calendars/<username>/defaultcalendar/

thanks both pmelas and Tanghus with relation to Fruux when i open syncEvolution it gives a long list of service templates but Fruux is not one of them. So I do not understand where do I add and what kind of information i order to sync with fruux.

any help is appreciated. thanks

when you add a service use the webDAV template
