I'm trying to do what I would think would be an easy and oft-requested endeavor -- sync iCal calendars across different User accounts on my computer as well as my work computer. To illustrate, I'd like to be able to schedule an event on iCal and have it show up in my wife's calendar, which is in a separate User Account on my Mac.  Of course, I'd like to see her events as well AND see them on iCal on my work computer. Can this be done?

Mac OS X (10.7.4), 12GB RAM

    If you use iCloud you can simply share the calendar to those you want and it will sync the calendars on all devices that use your iCloud account.

    Have you correctly allowed her write permissions to your calendar(s)?

    If you click on this symbol…

    … next to your calendar in iCal or on the iCloud web site you'll see your sharing settings for the calendar.

    It should be right next to your calendar name. If it's shared then it will be always visible, if the calendar is not currently shared, but sharable, it will appear and be clickable when you put the mouse over the calendar name. Given your wife can see your calendar you're probably looking at the wrong calendar.
