Template:Languages Template:TOCright DAViCal is generally available for download from:


Andrew's Web Libraries, which DAViCal depends on, is similarly available from:


Pre-built Distribution Files

Debian / Ubuntu

Debian Sid

The latest versions of AWL and DAViCal are in Debian Sid and can be installed directly with apt-get.

Ubuntu Development

The latest versions of DAViCal have very likely been synced from Debian and are present already.

Older Ubuntu & Debian releases

While older DAViCal packages are present in several releases of Ubuntu, you may want to consider installing a more recent version by adding Andrew's repository to your APT sources:

deb http://debian.mcmillan.net.nz/debian lenny awm 

These packages will work with any version of Debian, Ubuntu or other debian-based release, on any architecture, as long as versions of PostgreSQL (8.1 or later, 8.4 or 9.0 preferred) & PHP5 (5.1 or later, 5.3 preferred) are used.


An ebuild should be available within the 'sunrise' overlay.

Red Hat and other RPM-based releases

Packages may be easily built using 'alien' to convert the Debian packages to RPMs and these are available at:

It is possible that DAViCal will appear in the Fedora repository shortly, with more carefully constructed packages.


There are ports of DAViCal which are updated from time to time.

Installing from Source

Tar archives

DAViCal is not a compiled package, so there is generally very little to be gained from installing from source, however you can do this by downloading the relevant .tar.gz files (both DAViCal and AWL) from the above location.

Installing from Git

If you really do want to install from source you are best advised to clone from the DAViCal git repository at GitHub (and the AWL repository which is on repo.or.cz) as follows:

git clone git://repo.or.cz/davical.git
git clone git://repo.or.cz/awl.git

For more information have a read of Developer Setup and Helping with DAViCal.
