Hi All,

Thanks to all of you for your input.

I still, however, am searching for a simple solution that does not require 
setting up an online service or the computers to be on the same LAN for two 
basic reasons.

First, I want to be able to have access to my calendar even if I'm not online. 
Second, I also have a way of syncing file systems that works very well for me 
and that I'm very comfortable with so I'd rather rely on that than develop a 
new 'skill'.

Is there any place where the environment variables evolution uses are listed 
or, alternatively, a way of setting variables via commandline arguments.  This 
would seem to be a very desirable and 'unix-y' ability.

Evo gets most of its configuration info from Gconf, which stores it in a
bunch of XML files under .gconf/apps/evolution/calendar. You could try
synching these, but be warned that it is probably a bad idea to do this
while Gconf or Evolution are running. I've adapted the following from

On the source machine:

1) evolution --force-shutdown
2) gconftool-2 --dump /apps/evolution/calendar > my-cal-file.xml

Copy my-cal-file.xml to the target machine.

On the target machine you should probably log out of Gnome and log in at
a console, then:

1) gconftool-2 --load /apps/evolution/calendar < my-cal-file.xml

I've no idea if this will work.
