Sync subscribed calendars to the iPhone via MobileMe
Authored by: ridogi on Jul 18, '08 12:34:31PM

This looks very useful. I'll try it this weekend.

You can definitely use lingon to automate this.

Create a "my agent"
Give it a name (to identify on the left)
For what use: open ~/path_to_automator_app/your_automator.app
For when use a logical schedule (once a day maybe)
Make sure enabled is checked.

You could also set an iCal event to trigger the Automator file. Set the alarm to open file and make it a repeating event. Of course you don't want to see this on your phone--you just want it to happen. And this is exactly what I am trying to figure out to do--eliminate a calendar from being seen on the iPhone if it is synced with MobileMe.

If you have Entourage, you can create a schedule to launch the Automator app. You can pick the days and times to run the selected file. The action is called "Launch alias" and you can select your Automator.app.

The problem with creating the scheduled alarms (to launch the app) in iCal is that each of those events will show up on the iPhone, which we are trying to avoid.

Lingon has been mentioned here, but (I guess I'm missing something) but I hadn't been able to get that to work. The Entourage schedule seems to be my best workaround to run the Automator.app. Anybody have another non-Entourage scheduling app solution?

I have gotten this to work with Lingon by saving the automator workflow as an application, and then for the "what" section in Lingon just click choose and browse to the app.

For example if your automator application is at ~/Workflows/calendar.app then your "what" section will read:

/Users/<shortname>/Workflows/calendar.app/Contents/MacOS/calendar
