Bug Description

0.17+17.10.20170606-0ubuntu1 in Artful & Bionic crash when trying to use KDE systemsettings to add a google account

"There was an error while trying to process the request: userActionFinished error: 2"

This results in no Google account be added.

This appears to be the result of changes implemented for Unity.

A WIP solution is discussed in the reported issue upstream:

https://gitlab.com/accounts-sso/signon-ui/issues/1

However, that solution requires KDE upstream to adapt it's Kaccounts KCM.

As KDE is now the only user of signon-ui (Unity dropping it's use) in Artful and abovea temporary solution is to revert to the last working version 0.17+17.04.20161109-0ubuntu1

This has been built here:

https://launchpad.net/~rikmills/+archive/ubuntu/kio-grive

and tested successfully, allowing the the addition of Google accounts, and the use of kio-gdrive to access google drive from Dolphin file manager.

This bug was fixed in the package signon-ui - 0.17+18.04.20171027+really20160406-0ubuntu1

---------------
signon-ui (0.17+18.04.20171027+really20160406-0ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Rebuild of 0.17+16.04.20160406-0ubuntu1 source. Versions later than
    this crash when trying to add a Google account in KDE
    systemsettings. An upstream solution requires unimplemented changes
    to KDE Kaccounts KCM, so for now revert to last good working
    version. (LP: #1727811)
  * Re-drop build dependency on libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev
  * Re-drop transitional signon-ui package (package was renamed for Utopic)
