I'm trying to import a calendar from my google agenda, so I enabled not secure application (https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps) to use my google account, but the password seems to be always wrong for maya (but it's not of course !). Then I have downloaded a ICS file from another web site and opened with calendar but nothing appends, nothing is imported.

So, I dont realy know why ...

also tryied How can I add multiple google calendars to the calendar?

Thank you for your help !

You may need to enable "less secure apps" in your Google settings. For more details, see this answer regarding a similar problem with Pantheon Mail.

Maya and Geary do not support OAuth, which Google now requires by default. Hopefully, a future Pantheon Online Accounts release will add OAuth support. Until then, enabling "less secure apps" should do the trick.

For more details, see the Google CalDAV API docs.


You may use it with 2-factor authentication enabled (if you need it for other reasons) after generating an app password for Maya.

  • I activated 2-factor authentification with my phone, and I generate a new password for my calendar but nothing appends ... No error, No sync. The eOS mailer works with my google account currently (so less secure app are enabled).
