[solved] Google online account with two-step verification

After upgrade, I can no longer log in to my gtalk account on empathy. The Online Account dialogue box gives the error "Expired credentials. Please log in again". But repeated log in comes back to the same message. Anyone experiencing similar problem?

I had the same issue. Deleting and re-adding the account seems to have fixed it.

Re: [solved] Google online account with two-step verification

Actually, it did fix it for me too, but with a twist.

If I remove/re-add account from GNOME3's "Online Account" setting box. It did not fix it.

I have to do use the Empathy/Accounts dialogue box. But when I did this in GNOME, it brought me to the "Online Account" box. When I did it later in XFCE, that fixes it.

Utter stupidity...

Re: [solved] Google online account with two-step verification

I see this is marked as fixed, but I am experiencing the same issue and I don't have XFCE to try mathfeel's solution..
Is there any alternative to solving this?

Re: [solved] Google online account with two-step verification

I realize this is marked as solved, but as none of the fixes worked for me, I figured I would put what I did to solve the problem.

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=688364#c2

In this thread, comment 10 gives instructions for using an application specific password instear of the regular google password that seahorse is storing.  I did this, logged in, and everything started working, with no errors.  Hopefully this will help someone else looking for an answer.

However I found a way to fix, thanks @Ionut showing a path

In my GOA_ entry I edited 'password' field
So I removed my generic google password and inserted google application
password, I got in my 2-factor authentication page. So it's working fine now,
but it should be fixed I think ti work out of box wink

Yes. Check the show password, you'll see a long GOA_ string. At the end you'll
see your google password. If you enable 2-factor auth and reproduces a bug, you
should make an application password in google account and replace your google
password in seahorse with it. Logoff and login again after solves the
"expiration" problem
