I'm running aCal on my Samsung Galaxy S / Gingerbread and it isn't updating. Adding events pushes them out to my CalDAV server, but I don't see any events.

In aLogcat I see an awful lot of errors:

W/ActivityManager( 110): Permission Denial: broadcasting Intent { act=android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE (has extras) } from com.morphoss.acal (pid=11107, uid=10003) requires null due to receiver com.android.settings/com.android.settings.widget.SettingsAppWidgetProvider


E/aCal DavParserFactory(14157): IO Exception when parsing XML

I can't figure out how much of this is aCal, how much is my phone, and how much is bad data from my CalDAV server (Chandler Hub)


I'm having similar issues on a Kindle Fire with iCloud. One quirky workaround is to open Settings | Servers and disable your server(s). Then re-enable them. That seems to force an update.

a) Not sure about all calendars.
b) Right, it's a workaround, not a fix. But it address your questions:

"I can't figure out how much of this is aCal,"
Likely most of it, aCal being the one common element in both our observations.

"*how much is my phone, *"
Less likely, for the same reason.

"*and how much is bad data from my CalDAV server (Chandler Hub) *"

  • That works once, but a) it only syncs one calendar, not all three and b) it doesn't stick.

It looks like an update to aCal has resolved my issues. So I still don't know how to troubleshoot, but it is working.
