How to make GoogleCalendarScreenlet to show Google Calendar?

by N0rbert   Last Updated May 15, 2019 16:02 PM

I'm running Ubuntu MATE 16.04.6 installed.

I have added ppa:screenlets/ppa to it and have installed screenlets-pack-all package.

Then I have launched screenlets manager and have added GoogleCalendarScreenlet to my desktop, have set up the credentials in Options → gCal essential → Google account.

But it does not show events from my Google Calendar calendar.

Why? Is it just me, or it does not work at all?

Does any working desklet (widget) exist?

Some logs are below:

$ screenlets

$ tail -f ~/.config/screenlets/GoogleCalendarScreenlet.log

(I see the word Forbidden above, so it may be API change issue)
