Gmail, google calendar - default application

how to bring the installation? using AUR? I am a beginner.

That should do it:

pamac build gnome-gmail

or search in the package-manager and install it there. You have enable AUR Repo and refresh database first.

But you can also use gmail-nativefier and google-calendar-nativefier
Is blocked by google. Only possible with little tweaks.
