This will allow for system notification pop-ups, HUD integration, and other Unity features. This is how to install it: Open the Terminal and type these ...

The Online Accounts panel doesn't appear if you are using Unity. In theory, you don't need it with stock Ubuntu 12.04. However, it is useful if you have installed Evolution Mail, Contacts or Documents. In some of these applications, like Contacts, you can open the Online Accounts panel directly from their own menus. Otherwise, you can get to it in the ...

Type the following command: sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/gnome-online-accounts-panel.desktop Scroll down till you see the following: OnlyShowIn=GNOME; Change it to look like the following: OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity; Click save. Then try searching accounts in the dash.

You could just use the gmail web client. Or you can go into evolution and add your google account as an address book:

Michael is correct. Thunderbird doesn't integrate with CouchDB (yet :) so the only way to get it to sync with the Ubuntu One cloud is through our mobile phone contacts sync service since Funambol (our technology partner) has developed an add-on for that application. They also have add-ons for MS Outlook and the Mac Address Book applications. Currently their ...

A member of our web team is working on something on his free time (which is not much, because he is a member of our web team), https://launchpad.net/hedera. Quoting the description over there: Hedera is an extension for Thunderbird (currently Thunderbird 3 only, but Thunderbird 2 will be supported when the extension is stable) that synchronises ...

The old funambol clients were giving us and our users too many severe problems, and we discontinued the service. From our blog post, As of June 1, 2011 the current Ubuntu One contacts sync for mobile will no longer be active. We’re stopping support for our current service so we can focus our energy on launching a much better service sooner than ...

Ubuntu Touch has EDS (Evolution-data-server) installed. So you can sync it using syncevolution. First install latest stable version from repo: For =>14.04 sudo apt-get install syncevolution syncevolution-provider-uoa For <=13.10 sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://downloads.syncevolution.org/apt stable main" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ...

Here is a simpler and more up-to-date answer for Ubuntu Touch 14.09/14.10. Even if it is easier that it used to be (no need to be root, no need to use the developer mode...) an app that automates this would be appreciated. Import Copy your contacts (as one or multiple .vcf, other formats might work too) to your device. Let's say that you put them in a ...

Well there are two Online Accounts Apps in Ubuntu: Ubuntu Online Accounts. This one is for the Unity Desktop and is pre installed in Ubuntu. Gnome Online Accounts. This one is for the Gnome Shell Desktop and is not pre installed in Ubuntu. The gnome-contacts App is a Gnome Application and therefore uses the Gnome Online Accounts App. But you use the ...

I've understood that "syncevolution --sync slow owncloud calendar" should be use only for the first sync. After that you should use : syncevolution owncloud calendar To do a cron job, I've got the same issue. One solution which work for me is : Method 1 : export DISPLAY=:0.0 && export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=Yourdbussessioadress && ...

Ubuntu one for Android website and the application can be found at this web-location. The ubuntu one contacts app is visible only if you are running 2.x as described in the ubuntu one wiki. The contacts app is provided by Funambol - if you are having problems then have a look at the support blog for updates

It is supported, but not quite as elegantly as Evolution syncing. Here's the step-by-step: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOne/Tutorials/Contacts#Sync%20Thunderbird%20contacts Basically, you must tell Ubuntu One you have a mobile phone (you can fake it) and then install the mobile phone syncing plugin for Thunderbird and point it at Ubuntu One.

It's an intermittent problem we're chasing down, we hope to get it fixed soon. You should be able to reload the page, wait until everything has downloaded, and then add more information without problems. If not, let me know.

While I wasn't able to find a timeline for when there is an explanation of why it isn't available on the 9.10 and 10.04 release. Syncing of contacts and bookmarks is working for Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) users. Maverick users will need to have the latest updates installed. Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid) users will have to wait ...

We don't currently have plans to bring contacts sync to Opera, but if someone is interested in building an extension to do that I am happy to provide all the Ubuntu One information that would be needed to do so! If you, or someone you find, wants to make Opera a better citizen on the Ubuntu desktop, that'd be really cool.

To reenable contacts import window in the same state as it appears first time, you need dconf-tools: sudo apt-get install dconf-tools Run: dconf-editor Go here: org > gnome > Contacts, uncheck option "did-initial-setup". Run: gnome-contacts

I was curious about this myself, greping around in /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui I found reference to contactDisplay in overview.js. You should be able to comment out the two lines: const ContactDisplay = imports.ui.contactDisplay; this.addSearchProvider(new ContactDisplay.ContactSearchProvider()); and that will take care of it. Just tested it, and ...

I've previously used the Google Contacts add-on for Thunderbird. This creates a separate folder in your address book with your google contacts and seems to work fairly well. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/google-contacts/ EDIT: I'm not sure if this is exactly what you want as it does not interact via the online accounts feature.

There is a package missing in the build. Open terminal and run sudo apt-get install libfolks-eds25 Then reboot and you should be able to save contacts again. :)

Gnome-Contacts uses evolution-data-server by default. So any contact created in gnome-contacts can be also be found in Personal address-book of evolution-contacts. The default contact list located in ~/.local/share/evolution/addressbook/system. If you can't delete a contact just delete it from evolution.

Please make sure in Thunderbird preferences, composition options, addressing tab, that address auto-completion has enabled the local address books option.

Claws Mail cannot directly sync gmail contacts. There is the GData plugin which periodically pulls in GMail contacts, and adds them to Claws Mail's address completion list. That means that even though they're still not in the addressbook, they are available in address tab-completion when composing emails, or in filtering based on address book. It's not a ...

Unfortunately, a linux solution for syncing your PIM data directly to an Android phone does not exist yet. As I had a same problem, I found several possible "workarounds" without handing off your data to a 3rd party: Setting up your own "Owncloud" server on your local computer. Drawback: Server setup might be complicated. Owncloud Android apps seem to be ...

After numerous tries, I recommend on Android side: CalDav-sync CardDav-sync On Linux side: radicale (radicale.org): for calendar and contacts. I don't have a clean solution yet for file sync (maybe python-webdav on Linux)
