In my Arch adventures I added my Google account in the Online Accounts.

Settings > Online Accounts

Having the 2-Step Verification activated, after I logged in with my password, and entered the token, the account the credentials expired.

After trying again, same thing.

I’m in Arch with GNOME 3.8.3.

So, after some googling I found a solution in the Arch forum.

{‘authorization_code’: (……), ‘password’: <’YOUR_APPLIC_SPECIFIC_PASS’>}

That’s it! You calendar and email should be synced in Evolution.
