Finally there is CalDAV sync (yet for Calendars only, not for address books, unfortunately...). I am using correct serveraddress and serverpath, the preferences is showing all my calendars that I can sync, but not any entry in the calendar. (FYI: I am using DAViCal on GNU/Linux Debian.) I suspect it's because I am using a CACert certificate on my server.

Though I followed this guide, the CalDAV sync is not working and no events are shown in the calendar app.

Is there any way to implement the CACert root certificates system wide?

[Update] I was able to solve the problem by manually implementing the root certs in /etc/pki/tls/certs/ and after a reboot the sync was successful. But the root certs still seem not to be accepted system wide (e.g. for the browser app).

@mcantsin do you have many allday events? There is a issue with allday events and other events do not get displayed correctly

Yes thanks, @Sailor. I did see that thread.

I use CaCert with my OwnCloud server and CalDAV works fine. I doubt this is a CaCert issue, certainly if you your calendars are shown it must be something else.

Thanks for your answer. I was able to implement the root certs manually and after a reboot it works. - Though the root certificates still are not valid system wide (e.g. for the browser), but seemingly for the CalDAV sync. Have a good day!
