Using gcaldaemon to synchronize calendar to google calendar

I've been trying all morning to get this to work. I seem to have an error when loading /usr/local/sbin/GCALDaemon/bin/

I'm totally lost as to what the problem could be.

I know this is an old thread but I've playing around with GCalDaemon. I had a few problems and it din't support two way synchronization for contacts. Here is another solution I've found.

How to synchronize Google contacts and calendar with KAddressbook and KOrganizer

It has a little problem with the contacts phone numbers and birthdays, but it's open source. Anyone with knowledge of Qt and C++ could help.
