A couple of things related to this package:

  • This app is the same gnome-calendar, but with some patches applied from Linux Mint in order to make it compatible with Cinnamon (since now it supports the Gnome Online Accounts module)

  • Because of previous point, this patched version of gnome-calendar will be supported only on Cinnamon because of the nature of the patches applied (and thus the newer dependencies), if you wish to use it on other GTK desktop environments you need to change within the patches, the DE implementation of online accounts (GNOME uses gnome-control-center and Cinnamon uses cinnamon-settings combined with gnome-online-acounts). Also this package will no longer work on GNOME so if you wish to use the calendar on GNOME please use the upstream package

  • In case you previously tested the upgrade from 3.32 to 3.34, please clean the cache of your AUR helper or Pamac/Octopi or else you might encounter some errors

  • Before giving an out-of-date notice, please check the upstream package gnome-calendar so I can check if there have been any changes between both packages that I can use to update it, specially since there are particular changes that needs to be tested between Cinnamon and GNOME

  • Any problems or bugs, you can report it to upstream GNOME since this is a half-official package, I only applied particular patches to make it work with Cinnamon but the rest of the program is GNOME-specific

@yochananmarqos: check if the upgrade to 3.30.0 from the gnome-calendar should help you, some of the options changed (probably related to its dependencies) and maybe that was the reason you weren't able to build it

I'm not able to build it:
