CalDAV Google Calendar in Thunderbird

  • Open Thunderbird File->New Calendar 
  • Select On The Network 
  • Select CalDAV 
  • Set Location to: https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/SPECIAL-SAUCE-GOES-HERE/events 
The "special sauce" that takes the place of SPECIAL-SAUCE-GOES-HERE is found on your Google Calendar (gCal) account.
  • Login to your gCal account. 
  • Go To Settings 
  • Click on the Calendars tab 
  • Click on the name of the calendar you wish to add to Sunbird/Thunderbird 
  • Look for the "Calendar Address" entry, next to the XML ICAL HTML buttons is a Calendar ID in parenthesis. 

It looks something like this for all but your primary calendar: nxu54xul23v3g...@group.calendar.google.com
For your primary calendar it will just be your gCal account login: <your-name-here>@gmail.com
