How To Sync KOrganizer Data Via DropBox

Note: I wrote this guide for myself, but I feel like there are KDE/KOrganizer users who do not know how to sync there calendar data via Dropdox.  I have searched around the net (and asked on the IRC channel) on how to do this, but it was difficult.   But then again, it could be me.  Also, if the community wants this in the guides section for the site, you have my permission to post this guide.

I wrote this guide for the KOrganizer users who need to sync their calender data over multiple computers without the help of Google and other online services.  Hopefully this will clear up some problems that you guys have while trying to do so.

  1. The default calender that comes with the program is useless for the calender that you want to sync.  You need to create a new one that will be placed in your DropBox folder (or some where else in that folder).  To do so, go to Settings < Configure Calender < General < (tab in General) Calenders.
  2. Delete the “Personal Calender”, which is your default one, by selecting it and clicking “Remove”.Screenshot from 2013-05-26 16:44:28
  3. Create a new calender by adding a “ICal Calender File”.Second
  4. Select where the file will be placed, in this case your DropBox folder.First
  5. Do the same for your other computers.  You do not a restart.

There is one issue that I found with copying the KOrganizer data from one computer to another.  It seems that the syncing stops working and you need to redo the calender file by the same process.

Thank you and if you have any questions/comments, please comment below.

    This is coming from my Fiction blog. I think it’s smarter to keep it there and re-post it to this one.
