    Also the plug-in is partly broken, Calender gives me errors..

    Code:
    Error on zimbra://user@host:80/10:
    Unable to go online.
    
    Error on zimbra://user@host:80/10:
    Authentication failed
    If I try "On the web" or WebDAV I get "'Zimbra' is a read-only calendar and cannot be modified. Please select a different calendar from the side bar in the Calendar view." -- but that is normal right?

    I've compiled the zimbra connector, but how can add the calendar to my evolution?


    I'm writing the following:

    Code:
    razametal@laptop:~/src/zimbra/evolution-zimbra-0.1.1/calendar$ ./create-account Zimbra zimbra.mydomain.com razametal 80 use_ssl
    It is okay? Please can you post a sample for adding zimbra calendar to my evolution?


    Best regards,

    So I followed that and created an account. Whether that was related to what happened next, I'm not sure - guess yes - but soon thereafter, within Evolution I had a calendar listing with my Zimbra events, and the two different address books. I setup Evolution to look in those address books when sending mail, and created a Calendar event within Evolution (and verified that it was posted via Webmail). Also tested a Free/Busy search - seemed to work right away. That's about all the testing I did.
    I can make the calendar work

    Please can you explain how to get it working ?

    I dont' have this in front of me anymore, and we are not using the Evo plugin anywhere. So best I can suggest is - type "./create-account --help" and check the syntax. My guess is something is not right with yours... for example, the "use_ssl" is probably a 0 or 1, meaning enable or disable. So to use your example, I _think_ it would be closer to:
    ./create-account Zimbra zimbra.mydomain.com razametal 80 0
    I'm putting the "use_ssl" to 0 (zero) b/c you list port 80, which is NOT ssl (443), but if you ARE using ssl, change port to 443 and "use_ssl" flag to 1

    But again, check the syntax with ./create-account --help

    HTH,

    Thank you for your responde.

    I've followed your instructions and now I'm getting the following message:

    Code:
    Error en zimbra://razametal@zimbra.mydomain.com:80:
     Authentication failed
    Code:
    Error en zimbra://razametal@zimbra.mydomain.com:80:
     Unable to go online

    Where can I put the password for the calendar?

    Default Install Zimbra Evolution Connector on Ubuntu 8.04

    After culling information from a variety of sources, I pulled together this quick and concise guide on how to install the Zimbra Evolution connector plugin. This guide works specifically for Ubuntu 8.04.1 and version 0.1.1 of the connector. I tested it using a fresh Ubuntu Hardy installation.

    Get everything ready:

    • Download the Zimbra connector's source 0.1.1 tarball from here:
      https://sourceforge.net/project/show...kage_id=245547
    • Extract the tarball to a folder on your computer I'll extract it to the desktop for this example.
    • Open a terminal window and change directory to the folder
      (cd ~/Desktop/evolution-zimbra-0.1.1)


    Install the needed packages with the following commands:

    • sudo apt-get install automake evolution-dev libglib2.0-dev intltool libtool evolution-data-server-dev libcurl3 libcurl3-dev
    • sudo apt-get install libedataserverui1.2-dev libedata-book1.2-dev libedata-cal1.2-dev

    Note: If the second command errors out and tells you that it can't find the files, then you may have to enable some repositories in Synaptic,

    Compile the source

    • ./configure
    • make
    • sudo make install

    Note: You should not receive any errors when running these commands. If you do, then something needs to be fixed before proceeding.


    Put everything in the right place
    The plugin files are installed in the wrong directory, so run these commands to fix everything:


    • sudo mv /usr/local/usr/lib/evolution-data-server-1.2/camel-providers/* /usr/lib/evolution-data-server-1.2/camel-providers
    • sudo mv /usr/local/usr/lib/evolution-data-server-1.2/extensions/* /usr/lib/evolution-data-server-1.2/extensions
    • sudo mv /usr/local/usr/lib/evolution/2.22/plugins/* /usr/lib/evolution/2.22/plugins/


    Access the connector in Evolution

    • Start Evolution
    • You should now be able to see the plugin in the list on the Edit – Plugins menu. It should be enabled by default.
    • When you setup a new email account, instead of choosing POP or IMAP on the “Receiving Email” dialog, select Zimbra Collaboration Suite.


    That should do it.

    (Good luck. I have had mixed success getting some of the connector's functions to work.)

    Default Zimbra Calendar in Evolution

    I've had some limited success with the Zimbra Evolution connector and the Zimbra calendar.

    Here's what I did:

    Go to Calendar - Add New Calendar
    Calendar Type: On the Web
    Name: John Doe
    URL: webcal://www.mydomain.com/home/me@mydomain.com/Calendar
    Use SSL: Unchecked
    Username: me@mydomain.com

    The email account ("me@mydomain.com" in the example above) must be a valid user on the Zimbra server.

    I have found that the Evolution interface for calendars on the web is somewhat fragile. First, as good measure, I suggest restarting Evolution whenever you make changes to the calendar parameters. Only after a restart did it take my changes. Also, you may want to double check the parameters after you enter them. Evolution will sometimes mess them up.

    I can see the calendar, but I cannot update it from Evolution. It was my understanding that the connector would allow a two way update, but I have not had much success with that.

    You can just do CalDAV type and do caldav://server/dav/user/Calendar However It can not publish new events.

    I believe the reason why is Evolution does not use the UID of the appointment when creating new appointments, and Zimbra's attempt at redirection fails.

    So all I can understand here is that evolution-zimbra is non working plugin at all.

    I also spend too much time bothering my mind with make it working, but it seems this was just lost time.

    Are there coders who wants to play with make new and WORKING plugin?
