Description Yajo 2014-08-01 13:16:37 UTC
Description of problem:
I have many accounts configured with GOA. 2 of them are from Google. Until recently, everything worked OK, but now when I log in my desktop, a dialog pops up asking for my Google Calendar password. That itself is weird, because it should not be needed, but when I enter the password it says it's wrong (but it is not), which is even weirder.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
At login. If I press cancel, then the next time I try to access my calendar.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a Google account.

Actual results:
Pop up asking for calendar password. Entering password says it's wrong, always.

Expected results:
GOA takes care of auth, and no dialogs pop up.

I can confirm the above, it happens on both my systems.

Comment 2 Gregor Hlawacek 2014-08-20 13:55:57 UTC
Same here. same version happens on both of my machines

Comment 3 John Thacker 2014-08-20 22:03:04 UTC
I'm seeing this with 3.10.5-1.
A bunch of users have reported this in GNOME Bugzilla as well. g-o-a 3.10.2-1 works fine according to some users.

Comment 4 John Thacker 2014-08-20 22:12:40 UTC
However, for me I get the same error with g-o-a 3.10.2-1. Mail in evolution works fine, but the Calendar repeatedly asks for the password and always claims it is incorrect. This occurs with 2 step authentication turned off or turned on with Google.
