You should be able to import a .ics file into GPE Calendar.  Use the 
File->Import menu item.  If it fails please contact me offline (or, even 
better, log a bug in the GPE bugzilla on http://bugs.linuxtogo.org/ if you 
are willing to).  You may want to try the recently announced beta test of the 
next version of GPE calendar (see ITT on  
http://www.internettablettalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22219) as it has 
some bug fixes for import/export.

GPE Calendar also has the ability to import a calendar from Google Calendar.  
Use Tools->Calendars, click on the New Calendar icon and set the type to 
Subscribe.  Note that this is one way -- it reads calendar data from Google 
but no changes or updates are sent back to Google.  Personally I don't use 
this feature so you may be best asking about it on ITT to see if you can find 
other people who use it.
