I have upgraded a client's MacBook to OS 10.6.2 (from 10.5.8, since 10.5.8 wouldn't give me a sync checkbox for Google in Address Book no matter what I tried, even a hack). A clean install on a new hard drive. Got the checkbox after the upgrade and successfully set up the account (yay!)
Went into iCal prefs to set up Google calendar sync. Entered the data required, and I got the message, "Verifying calendar account at address (null)".
The settings are:
Account Template - CalDAV
User name - the user's gmail account address
Password - the user's password
Server path - /firstname.lastname@example.org/user/
If I set the Account type to "Google", I get "No CalDAV server was found at the specified address."
Getting this set up for my client is critical to her business. She currently does not have access to her calendar on her Palm Pre.
Where do I go from here?
