This happened to me recently. I run unstable.
It is a library dependency problem. I had the same issue
with only seeing the Tasks and not the Calendar view.
You need some gnome libraries. Not sure exactly which ones....but I solved
the problem by doing an apt-get install gnome or something like that
to get as much gnome stuff as possible. If you got the disk space,
try it! It should work.
