This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

As far as I can tell, this is not a duplicate: on Ubuntu 12.04 Beta, there is no sync contacts function to be found on Ubuntu One. – emf Apr 23 '12 at 16:30
This… is a bug report I found on the issue - so far no answers on the subject – emf Apr 23 '12 at 16:37

Ubuntu One contacts sync has integration with Thunderbird in Ubuntu 11.10. The following instructions explain how to setup contacts sync in Ubuntu 11.10 with Thunderbird and use Ubuntu One contacts in Thunderbird.

Setup contacts sync

Open the Ubuntu One Control Panel Click on the services tab Click the "Install now" button Enter your Ubuntu password when prompted Click the "Install now" button under the "Enable Contacts Sync" section Copy contacts to Ubuntu One from Thunderbird

Open Thunderbird Click on the "Address Book" button Click on the "Personal Address Book" Select all the contacts you want to copy While holding the "Ctrl" key, move the contacts from the "Personal Address Book" onto the "Ubuntu One" address book Auto-complete email address from the Ubuntu One address book

Open Thunderbird Click the "Edit" menu and select "Preferences" Click on the "Composition" icon Click on the "Addressing" tab Click on the checkbox next to "Directory Server" and select "Ubuntu One" from the pull down menu Click the "Close" button

I'm sorry, but I think you didn't read my post. It says I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2. 12.04 ships with the new Ubuntu One client. There is no "Enable Contacts Sync" in the new Ubuntu One client. So this is not a duplicate at all. An I still can't get my contacts. Please reopen it an help me. – Emilio_Bravo Apr 2 '12 at 20:50
