    Default Gnome evolution and Google online accounts not working

    I can not receive any emails, calendars etc from my google accounts.

    The error listed in Evolution is
    Code:
    Failed to retrieve credentials from the keyring
    and in online accounts it says
    Code:
     Credentials have expired.
    .

    One thing I suspect is not helping is that I always have a Gnome desktop crash right after the initial login (desktop loads and a browser opens) and then I get kicked back to GDM and have to log in again.
    I did read about a similar Fedora issue from 2016 that the solution after a Gnome shell crash was to restart the
    Code:
     /usr/libexec/goa-daemon --replace
    but that does not work on opensuse.

    OK, this is a weird one but could already be solved.

    After my post I decide to see if I can stop the shell crash and hence perhaps solve the problem. I had noticed that the crash was happening when Syncthing was starting and launching the browser at user login. I removed Syncthing from the autostart and now no crash and all my Google services are working.

    Not sure exactly why it worked and now I have to start syncthing after everything else is started and running.
