    I use BusyCal as my main calendar, although on occasions I do use iCal. I have my MobileMe accounts on both of them, but every time I make a change on BusyCal, iCal will automatically open in the background. This has only started to happen since installing Lion, does anyone know how to stop this from happening, other than deleting my account in iCal, which I don't want to do

    DB:3.57:Set Ical As Default Calendar fa


    I am constantly getting an alert message when I open iCal asking if I want to set iCal as my default calendar application. I want iCal as the default, so I check the appropriate box. And then the next time I open iCal I get the same message. I'm using Tiger 10.4.11 and iCal 2.0.5. I also have Microsoft Entourage (from Office 2008) installed, but stopped using it due to problems with sync services. Any idea how to get iCal permanently set as the default calendar app?

    DB:3.57:Set Ical As Default Calendar fa

    Thanks for the response. I tried the same thing (trashing) in my situation but it didn't work. Turns out the problem was that when I was using Entourage it made itself the default app for .ics and .vcs files. I knew it was for .ics and changed that awhile ago - but wasn't aware of the .vcs relationship. When I downloaded a hotel reservation it was a .vcs file and when I tried to open it Entourage launched. I did a get info and found that Entourage was the default app for .vcs files. I changed that to iCal and that fixed the problem.

    The news on Entourage is encouraging as I prefer the Outlook style mail interface and also like some of the calendar features. I'll try it again and hope it doesn't mess me up again!

    Put the iPhone in the dock and it auto-synced and now my iCal has dozens events from 10 years ago appearing on every single day, repeating every day. Literally 23 items from 1999 or so are now on every page of my Calendar.

    How the heck can I undo this? No I don't use Time Machine.

    BTW, I just checked and the iCal on the iPhone is correct., the Mobile Me version is about 1 month out of date.

    How do I get the iPhone version to overwrite the other two?

    Thanks!

    Yesterday I had the exact same thing happen. Opened iCal on my laptop, and saw endless repeating events from 1996 - through....whatever. I'm not sure exactly how to fix this because the program seems really slow and unresponsive, too. I'm afraid it's going to lock up any second.

    How did you resolve the problem, exactly?

    I have been trying the various solutions posted elsewhere, but every time I try to sync my iCal calendar with my iPhone, I get a message that my iPhone has disconnected. I hope Apple will surprise me with a fix soon, because this basic feature should not be a problem.

    DB:3.37:Ical And Iphone Will Not Synch 8f

    Michael-
    I was having the same problem. At one point, got them to sync, but they would sync back to some previous incarnation of my calendar.

    Fixed it by resetting my iPhone, deleting iCal from my iMac (after saving data, of course) and reinstalling, then, sadly, redesignating every single event into one category. I figure since there seems to be no way to assign categories to events on the iPhone, it might have screwed up the sync process.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the suggestion and the well wishes! I right clicked her phone, when it was connected to iTunes, and did a back up. I then used an app by iPhone Backup Extractor to grab the calendar data. Since we've had nothing but trouble with iCal, we then used the .ics file to populate Google Calendars and all seems well. Now that everything is safe and sound I'm looking forward to experimenting with your original suggestion. Thanks again!

    This problem is often caused by a little piece of software that is installed to make Zimbra work. It is called Zimbra connector, in System Preferences.

    On an updated mac, that will cause ical to continuously make copies of the calendar.

    The solution is very, very easy. Remove Zimbra connector from System Preferences (right click, remove), remove and re-add the Zimbra account in iCal and everything should work. (make a backup before you do this and make sure to write down your account details!)

    Here's what worked for me:

    1. Open iCal and delete every calendar you don't want anymore
    2. Export an iCal backup (file--back up iCal)
    3. Quit iCal, Mail and AddressBook (if they're running)
    4. Clear out the following folders (delete everything in them!) and empty the trash

    /users/*YOUR USER*/Library/Calendars

    /users/*YOUR USER*/Library/Application Support/iCal

    /users/*YOUR USER*/Library/Application Support/SyncServices

    4. Restart iCal
    5. Restore iCal from its back up (file--restore iCal)

    DB:3.19:Ical And 10.5.4 Deleting Recurring Events mj


    MBP 2.4gHz core duo/OSX 10.5.4/iCal 3.0.4 (1263)

    iCal is generally sluggish, very noticeably slower than usual. biggest problem is when i want to move or delete recurring events. i have a number of recurring events that i have to manage, either get rid of them or move them, and every time i do this iCal hangs and i have to force quit.

    i believe this behaviour is more recent then my upgrading to 10.5.4 - but it could very well have started when i went to 10.5.4 - not sure.

    help?

    P.S. I guess there is nothing in the above set of actions that needs Terminal. You can do it all with your mouse from the Finder. You will need to control-click on the ".icbu" iCal backup file to get it to open like a directory ("Show package contents").

    Has anyone been able to sync their new iPad to iCal? It will sync to my iPhone 4S and my iPad2 only.Usually when this happens, you get something like 3000 sync conflicets and you replace the Calendar info in the iPad with that from iCal. It then syncs properly after that. Instead, every time I sync my new iPad with iCal (cable and not iCloud which of course isn't supported by MS), I get 3000 sync conflicts which should be repaired by copying my iCal info to my new iPad. But it doesn't do that.Anyone figured out how to do this?Thanks.

    But, since this was installed every time I attempt to start the service for iCal I get the error "No virtual host found for iCal service".

    I checked the settings and the host name was the fqn of the server and the SSL settings had the correct Certificate and everything looks good here.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for this please?

    DB:3.10:Upgrading To New Ical? cp


    Every time I start up either my MBAir or MBP I get the message to upgrade iCal to the new app. However, when I go to mobile me and attempt to upgrade I also get a warning that if I upgrade I will lose all my groups.

    Can anyone tell me what exactly I will lose if I do the upgrade? Because my iCal holds vital company information I can not even think of losing that. However, after reading the comments here it seems that the iCal upgrade more or less is a total start over and any past information is lost ... forever.

    Thanks for any help.

    I have a very bad problem with my macbook. I could not first read my apple mail. Than I figured out that my personal information from my computer is gone. I do not have my ical data, also my adressbook information and the settings of my desktop turned to default. It looks so like i first start with my macbook. One good thing is that my files are there, but like I said, the whole other information is gone. I have a time machine, but I do not see any possibility to get back my email information, adressbook info and ical info.

    Anyone else find that their dock icons disappear, or partially disappear, when you mouse over them? This only happens to me when magnification is enabled. Right now Safari, iChat, Time Machine, and iCal are disappearing (iCal partially disappears). Spaces was the first to start disappearing, so I re-added it. Right now it's working, I guess I'll see if it happens again. It happens the same in every space, by the way.

    Make sure you have no incompatible third-party login items or software that adds preference panes.
    Try these things:

    1. Repair Permissions with Disk Utility.
    2. Reset PRAM (Cmd-Shift-P-R keys at restart, hold until startup chime heard three times).
    3. Reboot into Safe Mode (hold Shift at restart until login screen appears with "Safe Mode" in red), log in, then restart normally.
    4. Reapply 10.5.1 update (the 110MB version download from Apple).
    5. Boot from Leopard DVD, use Disk Utility to repair permissions on internal HD, then reboot from internal HD and repair permissions again.

How can I keep Entourage from adding this calendar? Is that related to my Sync problem?

    DB:3.08:Caldav Account Keeps Returning After Being Deleted ff


    Hi,

    In our office we have used shared calendars through Mac OS X Server 10.5. As such, each user had their iCal Service turned on (on the Server) and their individual calendar showed up in every users' iCal left pane. In each user's iCal prefs there was an Account made for them, with delegation permissions and such for every other user.

    However, we have now switched to using MobileMe for our calendars. I have turned off the iCal service on the Server and restarted the Server. I have also turned off the iCal access in each user's account in the Server Prefs app on the Server.

    While I have been able to set up each machine to sync to the MM calendars, each user's Account keeps appearing in their iCal prefs (and hence in their iCal left pane.) And because of this, each user's (old, Server-based) calendar keeps trying to get synced to all the other machines, even though iCal Services are off. I keep deleting the CalDav account on each machine, but after quitting restarting iCal, it comes back every time. I've even trashed the contents or ~/Library/Calendars but that CalDav calendar keeps coming back when iCal is run again.

    Does anyone here know how I can delete that CalDav account for each user and have it stay deleted?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi thereI think that i have had the same problem as i was using ical (i prefer it to outlook for mac) and after i started playing around with an active directory my ical event reminders wouldnt stop reminding me even after dismissing them, anywayThe way that i found to get rid oth this problem is first quit ical, then make sure that ur calander is fully synced with some serveice (for example icloud) then go into ur libary folder (normaly hidden so you'll have open terminal and copy this line in:sudo chflags nohidden ~/Library/(it will ask you for a password (i think this has to be done on an administrators account, not sure as i do not have any non admin accounts on my computer))then ull be able to see it in ur home folder)Then go into it and you should see a folder called calanders, go into that and move all of the contents into a new folder and move that new folder to your desktop (or anywhere else you want, this is a back up of what was there before) (once you do this there should be nothing left in the calander folder in your libary folder), start ical and it should the pull down all of your calander events from the service you are using,Then once you are all done and are happy with it use this command to hide your libary folder:sudo chflags hidden ~/Library(you will have to put in your password again as you did before)(this step is optional as if you want to keep your libary folder un hidden just dont put in this command into terminal, as some people like to have it unhidden like me)If this does not work and you want to go back to what you had before just go back into that libary folder and remove any new folders and put the old folders back (make sure ical is quit before hand as this may mess things up)I HIGHLY RECOMEND BACKING UP FIRST, and I TAKE NO REPONSABILITY FOR ANY DATA LOSScaused, DO AT YOUR OWN RISK, as i said earlyer i am only letting you know what i did to fix it and so far i have found nothing that has messed up.Hope this has helpedThomas

    DB:3.07:Palm Calendar And Ical: Calendar Types Don't Match? fd


    Hi everybody,

    as I didn't like Palm Desktop from the start, I sync iCal and AddressBook via iSync's Palm Conduit. When I make an "Office" entry in iCal, it appears as "No category" or "Private" on my Tungsten E2 and vice versa.
    I tried to name iCal calendar and Palm category the same ("Buero", German for "Office"), but the two just don't care a f... Do I really have to change the category settings manually every time I have synced the two? Is there any way around this? I found an option in iSync to enter ALL new Palm entries in a specific calendar type. However, iCal just creates a NEW calendar with the same name and ignores the already existing "Buero" calendar. Slightly ridiculous, isn't it?

    Any hints, solutions, help?

    I tried to sync my Palm desktop with iCal a long time ago, but the result was a mess (events on wrong days; multi-day events repeating on every day instead of ending when they were supposed to). Not having time to straighten things out at the time, I went back to using Palm desktop 4.2.1.

    Now, in preparation for syncing with my iPhone, I want to make the switch to iCal/Address Book. Problem is, I can't get rid of the old/wrong calendar events in my home calendar. Following instructions from another post, I tried deleting all the contents of ~library/application support/iCal as well as the two iCal-related preferences in ~library/preferences (com.apple.iCal.AlarmScheduler.plist and com.apple.iCal.plist) in order to start fresh with a blank calendar. I emptied the trash, logged out and back in, but iCal still found the old calendar data and brought up all the outdated events.

    I use Missing Sync for Palm OS to sync between my computer and my Palm T5. For a long time it worked flawlessly. Then (because of updates?), I opened iCal and there was nothing, no Calendars no Events, nada. Then I clicked Month view and my Events appeared but no Calendars. I then quit iCAl, went to Library/Application Support/iCal/Sources-Deleted all folders and emptied trash-when I restarted iCal all the right calendars appeared. I quit iCal again and when I turn it back on my original problem returns: no calendars and must click Month view to get any Events. Just seems like something in iCal is corrupted? Is there a way to "clean it out" and start over or is there some other magic pill? I've looked through forums on both Apple and Mark/Space and couldn't find a similar post. It does seem to be an iCal problem.

    This is really annoying as it causes the iCal icon to keep jumping in

    Any ideas?

    Could it be that google is sometimes refusing the connection because of the 5 minutes refresh interval? Some email servers refuse connections when the refresh rate is too high.

    Try setting the refresh interval to a longer period (e.g. 10 minutes).
