You can install Ubuntu’s New Web Apps Feature of Ubuntu 12.04 & 12.10. This will allow you to integrate your Gmail and Google Calender to the desktop, and make them first class citizen on your computer. 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 ...

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 ...

In order reset desktopcouch/couchdb to a known state please verify the following: There are no DesktopCouch entries in gnome-keyring (seahorse frontend) There are no desktopcouch-service processes running: /usr/lib/desktopcouch/desktopcouch-stop killall desktopcouch-service There is no config file for couchdb - ~/.config/desktop-couch/desktop-couchdb.ini ...

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 ...

I think you are looking for Broadcast accounts. Open terminal. 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.

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. :)

Ubuntu Touch has EDS (Evolution-data-server) installed. So you can sync it using syncevolution. First install latest stable version from repo: sudo add-apt-repository deb http://downloads.syncevolution.org/apt stable main sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install syncevolution-evolution If you are using Google-Contacts, then export all contacts as vcf ...

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.

Did this happen with phone sync? If it did, be careful as the instructions below may also delete the contacts in your phone when you re-sync. The simplest way to delete everything is probably using our new bulk delete option. To do this: Go to: https://edge.one.ubuntu.com/contacts/ Click "Select all" Delete

This is not possible right now but it is being worked on. You can find more details on Mike Conley's Blog.

Until we get CouchDB 1.0 into Lucid (which we aim to do by the next point release), unfortunately replication won't work. If you're feeling adventurous, you can try the PPA mentioned in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/CouchDBSRU; If you do, take care, and report any issues on that wiki page. Otherwise, please wait a couple more months. Thank you.

We've been seeing problems with contact syncing on iphone and nokias for a while now, and have been chasing these cases individually. The problem is, with our current infrastructure, it's usually hard to reproduce and fix. While we continue trying to resolve each case individually, we've started to look into more in-depth solutions that provide a nicer ...

It is indeed being worked on. I hope we can get one-way sync for Google contacts on production within the next 2 months, and two-way sync shortly after that. So, soon :)

I had the same problem several years ago, and wrote a very small python script to unify the LDIF export of a Thunderbird addressbook: export addressbook as LDIF to e.g. abook.ldif run cat abook.ldif | unify_ldif.py > abook_new.ldif import abook_new.ldif again (maybe rename old addressbook before) The script currently matches duplicate entries on email ...

The UbuntuOne contacts in evolution use a couchdb file (desktopcouch) which is normally hidden from you. If this file is missing then the url will be invalid. It could also be a bug since it should be clever enough to create an empty couchdb if it's missing. I wonder what would happen if you run the desktop couch stuff from the command line.

You can try Wammu. Wammu is a program to manage data in your cell phone such as contacts, calendar or messages. It is built on Gammu library, which provides abstraction layer to work with different cell phones from different vendors (including Nokia, Sony-Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung, Siemens, Huawei and others).Wammu To download, and more info see the ...

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)

This appears to be a bug and you may have to wait until it is fixed: Launchpad bug report
