After adding my Google Account to maya I want to reset the Application. But there's no possibility to delete the shown calendars!

Anny ideas?


  • There should be a better method but if you don't care about data stored in calendar you should try sudo apt-get purge maya-calendar and afterwards sudo apt-get install maya-calendar and check if that solved it. Nov 9, 2016 at 17:13
  • Don't forget sudo apt-get update before. Nov 9, 2016 at 17:16
  • These commands are helpful to reinstall the maya-calendar package (that is the application) but they don't do anything with user data (that is calendars, configuration etc.).

  • Sorry @lemonslice , I thought that sudo apt-get purge would get rid of the config files and installing again will have a brand new result. :-( Nov 12, 2016 at 16:58

    Actually, it does get rid of the system configuration files but not the user ones. Anyway no problems at all, this site is for learning from each other.

You can hover over the calendar name in the gear menu (top right) and a trash icon appears. However, there are two special system calendars (Birthdays&Anniversaries / Personal) that you cannot delete but hide.
