When I open my user session in Ubuntu 12.10, System Settings tray icon in top panel is always in red mentioning that some online account needs internet access grant.

Yet, It's always Google and only Google.

I granted it access many times but it's not persistent. Either connected to Internet or not, this behavior remains.

This being a bug; does anyone have some workaround?

  • @AndrewMyers I think it was closed because it is a bug. I asked the question hoping someone could reveal a workaround, while the bug is being addressed.

It's definitely not the correct behaviour.

There is already a bug reported for a similar situation, but not enough information has been provided unfortunately. If you could help by providing the missing information, that would help us a lot in finding out what's wrong:

    Thank you for point the bug report link. I think that the problem is when using the same Google account on more Ubuntu PCs...
