comment I'm getting a lot of “System program problem detected” error dialogs, is there any way I can make them go away?
Worked flawlessly. This is a bug, right? The logs should be cleaned after reporting or after the upgrade.

comment Is there a way to register a Gmail account into Online Accounts
Hello, and thanks again. I've already been there. The problem is not Oauth per se, but how do I get it from Online Accounts. Because I'm doing it from a Scope, I can't ask for the user's permission from there-- I have to rely on Online Accounts for that. The Google part is very well documented and easy to understand. The Online Accounts part is the problem.

comment Is there a way to register a Gmail account into Online Accounts
I'm pretty sure the problem is that Online Accounts does not ask for access to Gmail emails when doing the authentication (I have already verified it both from the authorization window and from Google's Security preferences-- there's no access to Gmail emails there). The question is: how can I extend the Google provider on Ubuntu to do just that? Is there a way to do it with what's already there or do I have to create a new provider? If I have to, where do I begin? The documentation for that seems a little outdated (as I pointed out earlier). Thanks!

comment Is there a way to register a Gmail account into Online Accounts
Hello there. So, I guess I couldn't convey exactly what the problem is. As far as documentations go, I understand that Online Accounts provides access to authentication tokens previously generated via OAuth mechanisms (except for Yahoo!, I guess). As for your question, I'm trying to develop a scope for Unity for searching email attachments (from Gmail, initially). The IMAP part is already half-way done. The only problem is that it relies on login/password, and I want it to use OAuth from Online Accounts.

comment How to resolve E: Internal Error when using apt-get remove?
Worked for me too. And I don't think installing all packages from that directory is dangerous in this case. The apt-get clean takes care of that.
