[CalendarServer-users] Creating a new calendar (Calendarserver and Evolution)

Hi Volker,
I use the same setup that you have described. I was able to add new  
calendars with iCal. The calendarserver creates these calendars in / 
var/spool/caldavd/calendars/__uids__/<username>/ and gives the new  
calendars guids instead of easy readable names. For easy usage with  
evolution I have simply renamed these guids to simple directory-names  
like holidays or konferences. iCal and lightning finds them.

I have just tried to copy one calendar to build another. This calendar  
does not appear. It does not work

An other solution if you don't get it running with evolution is to use  
the CalDavClientLibrary. You can create new calendars with it, as I do  
understand. Unfortunately I have still problems with the  
authentication of that tool. I seems it only accepts plain passwords  
and even this did not run so far on my setup

Hope this helps Georg
