You are correct - I had just come in, and only partly tuned the brain in :-)

If you have a std.ics that should be availabe as long as the calendar is told 
that it is the Default Calendar.  OTOH, if akonadi has created a resource for 
you then you would also need to find and copy over the mysql database.  Since 
I don't have that yet I can't point you to it.  Sorry
