    1313 * remember to "Save Default" to fix your preferences so you don't have to do it again. 
     15== Google Calendar with gCalDaemon == 
     16The only method I've found to sync Google to Mulberry is through gCalDaemon 
     18The trick is to use the offline file instructions: [] and have gCALDaemon write to Mulberry's default calendar file location. 
     19 Note that on Windows the Config Editor sets everything up for you except the password hash. 
     20 * In mulberry's Calendar Manager create a hierarchy, for example "google" which will be at C:/Program%20Files/Mulberry/Calendars/google/ 
     21 * Run config editor 
     22 * Set the Common options.  I enabled everything but the Pop-up window, which bugs me personally. 
     23 * You'll probably have to turn off the HTTP synchronizer (there's a bug in the ical naming convention that seems to keep this option from working, though it should be optimal as Mulberry can handle local cache and cache sync on its own.) 
     24 * Turn on the "file synchronizer" option 
     25 * I set "offline-enabled" mode 
     26 * Add your google calendar(s) to the sync these calendars dialog. 
     27 * The magic trick is to store the calendars in your Mulberry Calendars directory - in my install this is C:/Program%20Files/Mulberry/Calendars/google/mycal.ics 
     28 * I turned off "feed converter" 
     29 * Choose File->Save to save the config file to (probably) C:/Program%20Files/GCALDaemon/conf/gcal-daemon.cfg 
     30 * Run the included app (with gCalDaemon) "Password Encoder" and convert your Google gmail password to a hash. 
     31 * Open the config file in a text editor and replace the example hash with your password hash. 
     32 * From the ../bin directory run standalone-start.bat and watch the ../Calendars folder - your mycal.ics files will appear there.  Magic! 
     33 * Restart mulberry and go to your local calendars, you should see the local calendars.   
     34 * There's no dynamic sync on the mulberry side.  Mulberry assumes it owns the files and doesn't look for local changes.  Suboptimal, but it should be read/write and sync to Google.  It's not a bad solution while we wait for scheduleworld to implement webdav write or for Mulberry to implement Google's XML put and get. 
    1736If anyone has a step by step process for getting Mulberry to sync to Google calendar and/or, that'd be very helpful. When I try to sync calendars with scheduleworld's calendar I get the following error:
