Ubuntu – Calendar constantly requiring Google authentication on 17.10


I recently upgraded from 17.04 to 17.10.

The GNOME Calendar application displays a popup requesting my password for my linked Google account.

It does so whenever launched explicitly, and at times on its own.

When I type my (correct) password, the popup just reappears as if the password wasn't incorrect.

The only way to dismiss the popup is to press the Cancel button.

I can see my Gmail events in the calendar, so it does seem to sync.

I tried removing my Google account from Settings -> Online accounts and re-adding it, with no change.

If it's any help, I am using Google's two-factor authentication.

Also note that Thunderbird does not seem to have this issue.

I was having the same problem and resolve it by deleting the configuration files of Evolution. Do this:

rm -rf ./.config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf
rm -rf ./.config/evolution
rm -rf ./.local/share/evolution

I don't have that problem anymore since I did that. I hope this could help you.
