Gnome and google calendar with notifications!

Mashing GNOME desktop and google calendar is possible, thus making your life easier and probably more organized.

Here’s the easiest method (no downloads)
There’s a software called evolution that is already bundled into Ubuntu, thus you have to simply follow this tutorial.

If your using Ubuntu 10.10 it’s even more clean, since the evolution-webcal application is in a newer location, just type this in the terminal:
> /usr/lib/evolution-webcal/evolution-webcal http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/someaddress-to-your-ical/basic.ics


This is what you get in the gnome calendar:

There are also some other specific projects, that you might be interested in checking.

– http://code.google.com/p/gnome-google-agenda/ (just a prototype, although quite interesting)
