    gcaldaemon gmail contacts

    this is probably not the place to request support, but i am wondering if anybody has the same problem that i am currently having.

    i installed and configure GCALDaemon just like is posted on their website (http://gcaldaemon.sourceforge.net/usage11.html#top). now, i am trying to have my Gmail contacts on my computer with Thunderbirs and whenever i run the stand-alone.sh i am receiving the following error message:

    ERROR | Unable to load contact list!
    java.lang.Exception: Login failed (check username/password)!
    at org.gcaldaemon.core.GmailEntry.connectLDAP(GmailEn try.java:231)
    at org.gcaldaemon.core.GmailEntry.connect(GmailEntry. java:147)
    at org.gcaldaemon.core.GmailPool.borrow(GmailPool.jav a:98)
    at org.gcaldaemon.core.ldap.ContactLoader.loadContact s(ContactLoader.java:274)
    at org.gcaldaemon.core.ldap.ContactLoader.run(Contact Loader.java:220)
    what i have noticed is that every time i run the password-encoder.sh and i input the same password...... the encoding is different every time.

    any thoughts on how i should persuade this situation is appreciated.
    thnx.

    Re: gcaldaemon gmail contacts

    I am getting the same problem

    Code:
    2009-12-01 15:41:11 | ERROR | ContactLoader  | Unable to load contact list!
    
      [1 ] java.lang.Exception: Login failed (check username/password)!

      [4 ] at org.gcaldaemon.core.GmailPool.borrow(GmailPool.java:98)

    I found this great .deb package at http://blog.philippheckel.com/2008/0...buntu-kubuntu/. I like the way he set it up for individual users.

    I had hoped that perhaps that .deb install would help me find whatever I was doing wrong with the manual install. But instead it has confirmed to me that something is busted with the contacts section. I'll have to poke around on the boards here and see if someone has already figured out the issue.

    Looks like everyone has this problem.

    Someone on the GCALDaemon support forums created a hack to solve the problem. I haven't tried it yet. But I wanted to get the link up here for you to check out right away.

    Have you tried the proposed solution slimx3m?

    I've tried to make the changes but I still get the same error message.

    I was facing the same problem, and replacing the existing gcal-daemon.jar by the one made by vin-c in the sourceforge forum did the trick!

    Replacing the existing gcal-daemon.jar indeed allowed me to connect to gmail. However when I tried to add the contacts from gmail to KAddressbook only the name and the phone number were recognised. :/ Did you have this problem?

    Two way syncrhonization isn't possible, right?
