I'm desperately trying to get my Thunderbird/Ubuntu One contacts to sync. A little back story: I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10. I've been using Evolution for my mail and contact for a very long time. Recently (last couple of days) I've been having more and more problems with Evolution not opening, emails not sending/receiving, etc. I decided today when Evolution wouldn't open at all to switch everything to Thunderbird. I uninstalled Evolution as I am low on disc space. Now when I try to set up thunderbird to use the contact in my Ubuntu One account, I receive the error message that the Thunderbird-CouchDB plugin could not be installed. Nothing further. Thunderbird version is 11.0.1. Any thoughts?
Seems quite similar to this bug report, althought I thought it was fixed: https://bugs.launchpad.net/thunderbird-eds-extension/+bug/930965
