Yeah, it took me a week. Sorry for that.
I saw your email while on vacation and then didn't have time to respond

Everything dandy. I started the sync-ui (I assume it must be
in the package I installed?) which looks just like it should, except
that, no matter what service I pick for synchronization, I only have a
checkbox to enable syncing of contact information. No calendar, and no
task support at all. I still tried it, and all of my contacts synced
properly, but of course nothing else did. Still, I would like to know
what I could do to fix this and get the full goodness of
syncevolution. I have the feeling it is something rather simple.
It could be that the other data categories are now shown because the
corresponding local databases do not exist yet. You mentioned that you
are new to Unix, so perhaps you never really used Evolution for this
Try creating a dummy event, task and memo in Evolution, then run the
sync UI again to configure syncing.
For what it's worth, the root cause of this is a rather confusing "open
only if exists" flag in the Evolution storage libraries. SyncEvolution
set that flag if the databases seemed to exist already, but later it
turned out that the flag should effectively be ignored and always be set
SyncEvolution 1.3 will do that and thus should no longer require
creating dummy items just to ensure that the databases really exist.
