Install gnome-todo. Check if it is working with todoist account. For me gnome-todo is crashing but it could be gnome-todo problem.

On the new build on a different hardware there seems to be a problem with to-doist.

When I try to install it with terminal it reports:

ventrical@ventrical-System-Product-Name:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-todo
[sudo] password for ventrical: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
gnome-todo is already the newest version (3.26.2-3).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
ventrical@ventrical-System-Product-Name:~$ 

and it does not show up in the panel.

Thanks. Todoist is working fine for me. I am opening a merge request.

Edit: gnome-todo is a application. Just run gnom-todo.

Online Accounts doesn’t appear in System Settings. Installed the latest ISO (from http://people.ubuntu.com/~twocamels/archive/) in Virtualbox and then installed libunity-control-center1 and rebooted.

@mrprobot

Online accounts doesn’t land in the iso yet. Try updating your system with the ppa above.

Yes now it works, I don’t know exactly why, cause I installed the same ISO and did literally the same as before.
