I have been trying to get an answer to a question but all I find are links to non related subjects or suggestions to try another method. So here goes:
Is is possible to get gmail contacts synchronised with Evolution in Ubuntu 12.04?
I have been able to get the email and calendar components set up very easily in a matter of seconds, the contact aspect though is proving more difficult.
The method I'm currently using is to:
go to the contacts tab
select new and then "addressbook" from the dropdown list
select "google" from the options
add in all the requested information and hit apply
It then throws a large red error banner:
"This address book cannot be opened. This either means that an incorrect URI was entered, or the server is unreachable.
Detailed error message: This account requires an application-specific password. (http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/static.py?page=guide.cs&guide=1056283&topic=1056286)"
It never asks me for a password or provides a location for me to enter in the password required.
Has any one been able to get this working? If so what steps am I missing or performing incorrectly? Thanks for any suggestions
