Thanks for the reply. I already have both of those installed and
configured. I'm not sure, but I believe those packages only detail with
email, not calendar events.
I believe the notification icon that appears when I have a calendar
event pending is part of evolution-alarm-notify, which I do have enabled
in my Sessions. Is evolution-alarm-notify specific to Ubuntu? Perhaps
that is where the issue lies.
Thanks again for your help. I would love to get this resolved, as I
love how well Evolution integrates into the Gnome desktop.
