would be nice to know how to :

clean everyting related to caldav accounts,

clean all events in phone (including local, synced and black 'shadow' events from deleted accounts)

to be able create it from scratch, so it should work

edit retag flag offensive close delete


If there are events left after you removed the CalDAV account, maybe they could be removed like explained here.

1) To delete an account from the commandline, you can do: ag-tool delete-account caldav_account_id (where the caldav_account_id is gleaned from ag-tool list-accounts). The ag-tool may be installed via: devel-su pkcon install libaccounts-glib-tools

2) The calendar events are located in the following database: /home/nemo/.local/share/system/privileged/Calendar/mkcal/db. You need permissions (devel-su) to access it with sqlite3.

There are plenty of threads already about caldav in which I list explicit instructions on how to get useful debugging logs so I can fix the issues as people hit them. I have some leads now (thanks to logs being sent by various community members) which I will follow up on, and hopefully have various fixes soon.

Cheers, Chris.
