Show your Yahoo calendars in KOrganizer ? so easy…

A few days ago, Jeremy explained how to add your Google calendars to Kontact, how about doing the same with your Yahoo calendars ?

Thanks to the DAV resource, adding external calendars became quite easy, let’s see how to do.

Start KOrganizer, in the calendars list, right-click and select ‘Add Calendar’

In the list of calendars type, select the DAV groupware resource and press ‘OK’

In the groupware server list, choose  Zimbra then ‘Next’

Now enter ‘caldav.calendar.yahoo.com‘ in the Host field and check the Use secure connection box. Do NOT add https:// before the URL

After pressing ‘Next’, press the Test connection button

and enter your Yahoo login and password

The earlier dialog will tell you if anything went wrong

You’re almost done, after pressing next, you may change the display name (that will appear in the KOrganizer calendars list) and press edit

The next dialog will show your settings for this resource. Click on fetch to make sure your Yahoo calendars are correctly listed

Voila, if you press OK to the opened dialogs now, your calendars will magically appear in KOrganizer

But… hey wait, have you noticed the carddav item in the previous dialog ? What happens if we try to add our Yahoo contacts ? Let’s see…

Press the Add button

Choose CardDAV.

In the Remote URL field, enter https://carddav.address.yahoo.com/principals/users/your_yahoo_email_address

In the Username field, enter your email

Press OK to the opened dialogs and You will see the result the next time you launch KAdressbook

  1. That “easy” in the title certainly is meant ironically, isn’t it?

  2. I really don’t think that without your instructions a ‘normal user’ would discover how to set up a yahoo calander.

    No way would I think ‘DAV groupware resourse’ as the first step when setting up the calander.

    I would have thought that the set-up wizard should fisrt ask what is your email address and if the user enters @yahoo or @gmail, then the wizard should do the rest of the email setup, including asking if you want to connect to your web calender

  3. There are too many steps for “easy” to apply! And how in heavens would one know or discover those steps?

  6. This “easy” must be ironically:)

    i hope for someone to make it like
    [x] add yahoo calendar => yahooID : ______
    [x] add facebook calendar => facebookID : ______
    [x] add google calendar => googleID: _____

  7. I also agree that this is far from easy.
    In my opinion you should either enter your email adress or if the server does not depend on email than its url.
    Then it should automagically ask you for the remaining data.

    How should that be done? Certainly _not_ via ghns, way too dangerous [1] but rather the way Thunderbird does it for mail. This is not ideal, but the most common services would be there quite soon and for the rest we could still use the “easy” way. ;)

    [1] Evil people could get your data that way. Let’s say someone added it for yahoo on ghns and it would even work, but at the same time they’d get your data since it was send to their server and just then too yahoo.
