how can i sync my google account?
thx for your help
It's a known issue currently.
It should be fixed in next OTA-14.
In the meantime, you can try this workaround: (worked perfectly well for me as well as dozen users)
. Start to enable the access of "less secured apps" in your Google account. Than run as following:
- From your device, download this plugin: https://github.com/rubencarneiro/account-plugins/releases
- Open the terminal application (tap on ENTER key after each following command)
- Type: cd Downloads
- Type: sudo -s
- Type: sudo mount -o remount,rw /
- Type: sudo dpkg -i account-plugin-google_0.15.0ubports1local.1586944513_all.deb
- Type: cd
- Type: exit
- Reboot your device
- Open settings => accounts => select Google
- Enter your e-mail address
- Enter your password
- Without enlarging the screen with your fingers, select: "Allow all actions"
Here you should be well connected to your Google account, which will automatically sync your calendar & contacts on your device

@stanwood Hi! I have the same issue with connecting to Google (I want to sync my contacts).
I tried following this setup but whenever I run a sudo command, I get the message: "sudo: unable to resolve host ubuntu-phablet"
Any suggestions as to how to fix this? I tried searching for a solution here in the forums but could'nt find any. Not sure whether it is due to my inexperience or actual issue in my device.
@oden Do you have developer mode switched on for your device? System Settings, About, Developer mode.
@lakotaubp Hi there! Yes, my device has developer mode turned on.
@oden It should work without any error message (and it worked for a lot of people).
Did you follow carefully all the steps that I described here on latest October 13 2020?
@stanwood Hi there. I followed the post from Oct 13 until item #3 because thats when I got the message my original comment mentioned. I cant run any sudo commands due to that message, unfortunately.
@oden Which device is this? and you get asked for the device password when opening the terminal.
@lakotaubp Hi. I have a Fairphone 3+. I am asked to input the password after sudo -s. I input my 4 digit passcode. This is what the terminal outputs for me.
phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ cd Downloads phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~/Downloads$ sudo -s sudo: unable to resolve host ubuntu-phablet [sudo] password for phablet: root@ubuntu-phablet:~/Downloads# sudo mount -o remount,rw / sudo: unable to resolve host ubuntu-phablet
@oden Another very basic question sorry but this is the same password as for unlocking the screen? yes. That will just help clear up that the basics are right. After that it may well be an issue with the Fairphone 3 port but I am really not sure. This has always worked well for me but I have OP devices.
If you do
sudo -syou don't need to put
sudoafter as you're already root.
I would only do
sudo mount -o remount,rw /
Then check the status of the partition.
@lakotaubp Hi there! As far as I know, it is the same 4 digit passcode to unlock the phone.
@applee Ah, so if I do sudo -s, then I do not need to writw sudo for the other commands?
