Hi there, I am new to Jolla, got my phone today, migrating from Android, and am trying to set things up.

My contacts and calendars are on a ownCloud server, which uses a Let's Encrypt certificate.

When I try to add a new CardDav/CalDav account, I simply receive the error "Oops, cannot create account". So I installed DavDroid through the F-Droid market, and added my accounts there. That worked fine, but I don't see how I can link contacts and calendar to DavDroid.

Any help on how I can sync my contacts and calendars would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Got it. The URLs need trailing slashes, it needs to look like this:

Server address:

CardDav: /remote.php/carddav/addressbooks/user/contacts/

CalDav: /remote.php/calddav/calendars/user/

Then it seems to work.

Normally you shouldn't need to enter the CardDav and CalDav URLs, it should find them out after you enter the Server address - at least it does for my owncloud 8.x and now 9.0 server.

Where can I see the actual setup? There is no info about server address on an existing accout? Does somebody know where I can find configfile in console?

devel-su pkcon install libaccounts-glib-tools then ag-tool list-accounts and ag-tool list-settings ACCOUNTID should list them.

In my case carddav' sincyng with owncloud stopped working after updating to the 9.0 version. This is what I can read in the logs:

Apr 01 15:33:55 Jolla carddav-client[24493]: [W] CardDav::addressbooksInformationResponse:518 - void CardDav::addressbooksInformationResponse() error: 203 ( 404 ) Apr 01 15:33:55 Jolla carddav-client[24493]: [W] Syncer::cardDavError:284 - CardDAV sync finished with error: 404 purging state data for account: 37 Apr 01 15:33:55 Jolla carddav-client[24493]: [C] CardDavClient::syncFinished:142 - CardDAV sync failed: 401 ""

@chalupa What version of the CardDAV plugin are you using? devel-su pkcon search name buteo-sync-plugin-carddav should tell you.

Can you provide me logs of the entire sync process?

1) ensure that /etc/systemd/journald.conf has RateLimitBurst=5000 and RateLimitInterval=10s and then reboot the device if you had to change those.

2) restart the sync scheduler with extra debugging enabled:

systemctl --user stop msyncd
MSYNCD_LOGGING_LEVEL=8 devel-su -p msyncd

3) leave that running, and open a new ssh terminal to collect logs from the carddav sync process:

devel-su journalctl -af | grep carddav > carddav.log

4) trigger sync via Settings -> Accounts -> Long-press CardDAV account -> Sync

5) wait a couple of minutes, then the carddav.log should have all of the info. Please redact any personal information from that log, and send it to chris dot adams at jolla dot com and I will investigate.
