Password for online gmail account problem

Post by eddiener » 2014/08/09 04:53:59

When I login to CentOS7 it asks me for the password to my gmail account. I think I remember setting up an online gmail account with CentOS7 when I installed it, so it must be asking me for the password so it can log me into my online account. I give the correct password to the account but the dialog tells me it is incorrect. The password is correct since I can open my browser, go to Google, and log myself in with the password I give CentOS7.

How can I fix this in CentOS7 ?

Probably you set up the GNOME-Google integration feature when you did your first boot of CentOS 7.

That is probably the case. But how do I fix my problem ? I know I am typing in the correct password but the CentOS7 dialog rejects it. How do I get rid of this integration feature since it does not work correctly ?

You can probably remove it by going to Applications > System Tools > Settings > Online Accounts. Or, if you're a command line kind of a guy, do

Code: Select all

cat ~/.config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf
to see what's in there.

I get the same failure to login to my google account, but it appears that the login was actually successful,
because when i open "documents" my google docs are visible.

So I went and added my google account to try and get docs working, but it kept saying that the password was incorrect. I know I was typing it correctly, so there may be something broken with it.

Right, it keeps saying the password is incorrect, but after I clicked the cancel button, Applications->accessories->Documents took me to my google docs.

It didn't show me any of my google services when I clicked cancel. Might be the difference between setting it at install and setting it up later. A neat idea if they get the bugs fixed. I may try my skydrive, but Iuse the google drive for more things because of my android devices.

If you look in the Passwords and Keys utility, under Login, it's storing some kind of verification code instead of an actual password. Something, somewhere, is not working properly.
