I am trying to publish my calendar info to icalx.com, which basically should allow you to choose the "Publish on a web server" option using the URL http://icalx.com/public/myname/
Unfortunately, no luck so far. When I choose "Custom Location" (under Preferences, Calendar and Tasks, Publishin Information) and fill in icalx.com I get the error "Could not open icalx.com: operation not supported", and when I choose WebDAV (HTTP) (which seems to fit the bill, given all the fields that can be completed) the result is a location that looks like dav://[hidden email]/public/myname, which leads to a similar error message: "the location is not supported". Perhaps not surprising given the strange dav: prefix.
So the question is: has anyone ever been successful in publishing a calendar on icalx.com or any similar site? And what protocol was used?

I do not have answers for your questions, I'm sorry, I only have a note
about the error message.
The "Operation not supported" usually comes from gvfs (glib/gio),
meaning that there is nothing to serve the chosen protocol (to mount
the destination with that protocol). Maybe check whether there are any
sub-packages for the gvfs with needed protocol, in case your
distribution splits them from the main package.
Note the destination is mounted in read/write mode, which the http://
(usually) doesn't allow (I do not count file uploads in forms).

I'm wondering how they send it there. I checked the icalx.com and the
only thing the author mentions there is something about "To publish a
new calendar from iCal, select the "Publish on a Web server" option,
and use one of the URLs: ...", which is not much from the technical
point of view. I tried curl command , but it didn't make it, from
which I guess they want some "special" format of the request.
