I'm tired of Ubuntu One failing to sync with my Evolution installation. I want to start using funambol, or google, or anything else that works consistently. I need to know how to export my Ubuntu One contacts to a csv, or other common file type.

While the other answers have provided information that helps with exporting contacts from Evolution or some other application, I think it would be more appropriate to have an export option for contacts directly from Ubuntu One in ICAL or some other standard format. –  user52898 Apr 2 '12 at 6:34

Take a look at this tutorial. After copying the contacts back into your local addressbook, follow the instructions here (make sure to use the locate command, don't just blindly copy what's written in the post).

Take a look at this tutorial... This doesn't work. The plugin doesn't seem to be compatible with newer versions of Thunderbird. –  user11364 Feb 26 '11 at 11:48
    
I thought you're using Evolution!? It works just fine with my own installation (Ubuntu 10.10), I tried it before I posted this. What exactly is the problem? –  sebastian_k Feb 26 '11 at 21:21
