I was unable to get kitchensync to work.

GCaldaemon have to set up each cal separetly. Hang on I'll look for the guide 
I used....... Ah here you go..   http://www.linux.com/feature/122054, and also 

Hope this helps.

I use kontact for my email, including gmail, the calendar as I said now is 
goofing up with not sticking the settings, and not showing the proper colors 
for resources,.. havent looked into that yet, but I also noticed that 
switching from weekly to monthly cal's takes FOREVER??

I dont use akregator anymore as I think google reader works better to my 

I have always used koragnizer for a long time now but am considering just 
using google calendar as I like the way it prints better for me and my 
purposes. I will try it when google gears is set to work properly with google 
calendar, for now I can us them both with gcaldaemon keeping my cals up to 
date with korganizer.
