Re: [Evolution] Calendar file messed up

You have to run "evolution --force-shutdown" before editing the file.
Then the changes will stick.

There are way too many entries to remove by hand, on my Visor, so I
would like to edit some file to remove them. I found the offending
entries in ~/evolution/local/Calendar/calendar.ics, and removed them
(being careful to start at BEGIN:VEVENT, and end at END:VEVENT). But
these events seem to be immortal: when I restarted Evo, the old
calendar.ics file had been recreated, with the offending events still

Any suggestions on how to eliminate them?
