    Default Evolution doesn't sync Gmail contacts properly

    Hello,
    I have added Gmail contacts as an address book in Evolution. It works fine apparently but it doesn't synchronize some fields, from example Company and Phone, which makes this utility unusable.
    Any solution or turnaround?
    Thanks,
    Jess Izquierdo

    Are you trying to reach the contacts through IMAP or it's an imported CVS list?

    Hello, ram88

    I am using Evolution 2.24 with KDE. I just have configured a new address book using one of the Evolution features:

    File > New > Address Book > Type > Google

    Evolution then imports the contacts from Gmail address book but some fields are not imported, in particular Company and phones.

    Thanks for your help,

    Jess

    I can't find any additional settings to modify the imported address book. I have just a few contacts with mobile phone but they are showed properly. Try to recreate the Address Book, I don't have better idea, sorry.

    Hello again ram88:

    I have noticed that some fields in the Google Address Book are not active, like Photograph, Categories, Company, etc... and in particular all the fields in the "Personal Information". But I don't know how to activate... In the personal Address Book (not imported from Gmail) all these fields are activated.

    Thanks,

    Jess
