Are you on Ubuntu 14.4 LTS (aka Trusty)?

I've upgraded, yes, because syncevolution-provider-uoa wasn't in 13.10.

Ubuntu started using SyncEvolution for syncing in 14.4. What you are
seeing is probably the intentional conflict between the distro's
"syncevolution" package and syncevolution.org's "syncevolution-bundle".

Normally, one can switch back and forth between these, but not if some
other components explicitly depend on "syncevolution". I'm not sure
whether I should allow syncevolution.org packages to replace
"syncevolution" without uninstalling these other components, because
there is no guarantee that syncevolution.org packages were compiled as
needed by the distro.

Actually, at the moment they aren't: syncevolution.org packages do not
have UOA support, while the Ubuntu packages do.

I guess I will have to change this, because eventually Ubuntu users will
hopefully want to try out more recent versions of SyncEvolution.

Renato, what do you think?

I'm fine with switching to the ubuntu-provided ones. Should I do this?

On another tack, what is considered gsso in ubuntu? Is that 'signond'?
