I just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04, looking forward to use the new Gnome Contacts, but I had some issues.
At the first start, I was asked what contact source to use. I had three choices: local, Google and Google. Which is weird, since I have configured just one Google account configured in online accounts. At any rate, I chose the first one (blindly, I had no way to tell the two apart) and it seems that I see my Google contacts in the address book.
The problem is that for some of them, I see something like
some data... Local some data.. Google some data...
that is, the data is repeated three times. I am pretty sure my Google address book is clean: I manually removed all cruft and merged all duplications no longer than one month ago.
So, why is that I am seeing these repetitions? Is Gnome contacts using my old Evolution address book? I would like to configure it, but I cannot even find a menu.
