Can contacts from G-mail accounts be imported into Ubuntu One?

Ubuntu one has a contacts sync. I want to sync my Contacts from Ubuntu One w/ Gmail.

From G-mail contacts >> to Ubuntu One contacts

I think you probably need to export from GMail to a text file (e.g. a .csv file) and then import that file into Ubuntu One. I don't use either so cannot test, hence this is a comment and not an answer. If it works for you then I'll repost as an answer. – Clive van Hilten Apr 20 '12 at 11:11
Is it important to you to be able to sync? Or is a one time import okay? – 8128 Apr 22 '12 at 18:46

You would need to export your Google Contacts into Evolution and then follow the instructions set out on Ubuntu One Exporting Contacts

Here is where google explains how to export contacts from gmail to a file. After this you can put the file in your Ubuntu One folder.
