Evolution calendar integration?
 
I'm wondering if it's possible to use the calendar applet in the ubuntu version of gnome-shell so I could have the evolution calendar integration in the panel?

@larry42860, Ubuntu's calendar applet doesn't work well in GNOME Shell environment.
You can search one gnome-shell extension at http://extensions.gnome.org .

Good luck.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I used Ubuntu 12.04 with gnome-shell and the Evolution calender integrated with the calendar applet that is included in the top panel so I could see appointments to the right of the calendar. I never had any problems with the calendar. I'm just wondering what was changed in the Deepin version of gnome-shell to remove it. I'd like to tweak my install to bring it back.

The other problem I have is that maximized applications beneath the panel make it difficult to see the panel icons since the panel is transparent. Other than these two issues, I think the Deepin version of gnome-shell is a work of art.

Ok. You can replace the calendar.js file under /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/ dir with the native gnome-shell calendar.js file in the same place. That may be ok.

Just press Alt+F2 and input "r"(without quotes) to try reloading the GNOME Shell.

Lastly, thanks for your feedback.;)

I used software to compare the calendar.js file in LD with Ubuntu running gnome-shell and evolution. They were exactly the same. I did learn, however, that the dateMenu.js file controls this. It is located under /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui directory. I simply removed the two forward slashes to uncomment the line below. I can barely see the appointments because they are in black text on the black background but they are there. The button to open the calendar works and the very tip of the larger letters is white. I'm looking at the gnome-shell.css file in /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme directory tp see if I can fix this.

// Fill up the second column
vbox = new St.BoxLayout({name: 'calendarEventsArea',
vertical: true});

// hbox.add(vbox, { expand: true });

// Event list
vbox.add(this._eventList.actor, { expand: true });


Thanks again for you help. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

That's it.
