How reproducible:
Every time.

1. Open GNOME Settings.
2. Switch to "Default applications".

Actual results:
"Text Editor" is the only default calendar application available.

Expected results:
"Calendar" is the default calendar application.

Comment 1 Peter Simonyi 2020-04-24 03:27:58 UTC
The default calendar application option changes the handler for ICS calendar files.  (Also, afaik, it does nothing else.)  Since Gnome Calendar doesn't handle ICS files, upstream devs don't think it's appropriate to offer it as a default calendar application in Gnome Settings.  Perhaps the real bug is offering a "default calendar app" when it really means "default ICS file handler"?

Upstream has several closed bugs discussing the issue, e.g.:


The upstream bug for handling ICS files is https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-calendar/-/issues/5

I am closing this ticket since this is a well known upstream issue.
