This question is related. So every time I boot Ubuntu it keeps asking for a Google account permission and I have to go to system settings and click on Grant access every time. How do I fix it?

  • @EliahKagan the answer said that the bug is fixed for Quantal. I am running trusty, so how come? Aug 7, 2014 at 10:22
  • Unfortunately it appears this bug may still (sometimes) occur--or perhaps has been inadvertently reintroduced to--Trusty. In the bug report, comment 83 reports the same or a similar problem in a 14.04 system. This might still be closed as a bug, but I've retracted my duplicate close vote. Maybe someone will have an idea (or perhaps there is some other, non-bug factor in play). Aug 7, 2014 at 10:26

I had the same problem. Going to the google app permission page (https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions) and deleting potentially conflicting entries (there were two for "Ubuntu") and re-doing the registration process eventually got things working again.


Temporarily enable trusty-proposed.

Upgrade the following packages :

evolution-data-server (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
evolution-data-server-common (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
evolution-data-server-online-accounts (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
gir1.2-ebook-1.2 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
gir1.2-ebookcontacts-1.2 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
gir1.2-edataserver-1.2 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libcamel-1.2-45 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libebackend-1.2-7 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libebook-1.2-14 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libebook-contacts-1.2-0 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libecal-1.2-16 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libedata-book-1.2-20 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libedata-cal-1.2-23 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3  
libedataserver-1.2-18 (3.10.4-0ubuntu1.2) to 3.10.4-0ubuntu1.3

After that disable trusty-proposed again. Reference :


  • Please format the code, I can't do that, I'm on mobile :)

If you have activated 2 step verification process, then add your google account to Ubuntu by treating it like an app. That worked for me
