Google contacts on Ubuntu Touch

Posted:   |  More posts about phablet ubuntu

After a comment from Rick in his blog post I thought I'd take the quick challenge. So here's the quick and dirty way to get it...

adb root
adb shell
ubuntu_chroot shell
apt-get install syncevolution
su - phablet
syncevolution --configure --sync-property "" --sync-property "password=secret" Google_Contacts
syncevolution --sync refresh-from-server Google_Contacts addressbook

If you have the phone app while doing this you can see the magic happen. Take into account that all contacts not on the server will be wiped (you can look at other options in syncevolution so that doesn't happen).

If you have too many contacts your people lens may explode! BEWARE None of these will be in your favorites, so the carousel will disappear.
