Ubuntu – Evolution can’t connect to google contacts


Hy guys,

if I want to view my gmail contacts in evolution, I get this:
"requested ressource was not found" and then a link which leads me to the google developers, as if I was a developer.

Email works without any problems. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • From google (https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/AuthForInstalledApps)

    Important: ClientLogin has been officially deprecated since April 20, 2012 and is now no longer available. Requests to ClientLogin will fail with a HTTP 404 response. We encourage you to migrate to OAuth 2.0 as soon as possible.

    A solution is to install gnome-online-accounts, then enter your google account information in it. It will take care of the authorization and let evolution talk to your google account.
