Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntuone-client

I followed these instructions:
But the contacts would not be synced to my ubuntu one account. Although I copied the contacts to the couch-db addressbook in Evolution, they don't show up at

I don't know if its of any matter to this report, but I couldn't copy a certain contact, the error in the attachment shows up. It says
"Error while adding a contact

Another error"

(Tomboy Sync works for me btw :-) )

Syncing contacts is still not in place, but should be very soon.

As for the 'Error while adding a contact' message, could you please run, on a terminal:

$ evolution --force-shutdown
$ /usr/lib/evolution/evolution-data-server-2.28

and then start Evolution again and try again the operation that got you that error message? After doing so, if it fails again, please copy all the output in the terminal and paste it here

Hurray, after today's update syncing of contact works :-)

And to the other problem:
I tried your solution, first the error reoccured, but as the output was more than the console puffer could store, I tried it again, but with
/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-data-server-2.28 > out

to pipe the output into that file. Needless to say: This time it worked without any problems, this contact was added successfully to chouch db

Anyway, thank You very much for your help :-)
