Add contacts with VCF files - Bouc - 07-17-2020

Hi, is there an easy way to import contacts from a vcf file?
I can't use simcard (different format) and I don't want a Google account.

Import contacts from VCF file
Syncevolution has been removed from upstream Debian, in the meantime it is straightforward to import contacts from a VCF file via Evolution tooling. First install evolution:
Code:
sudo apt install evolution

Before you import the file you will need to set scale-to-fit for Evolution on, otherwise the import dialog page is unusable.
Code:
scale-to-fit Evolution on

After this I opened the .vcf file via the Files app, it auto-launched the import dialoug. After importing I removed the Evolution app, this step is optional:
Code:
sudo apt remove evolution

Code:
sudo apt autoremove

Tks, but How install syncevolution in mobian, is not in reposytory.


RE: Add contacts with VCF files - Bouc - 07-19-2020

I think Syncevolution is required to work.
After launced the script ==> "No such file or directory: 'syncevolution' "

 
Code:
sudo apt install syncevolution
does not work,  the package is not present.

I just installed evolution and imported them through that.

I tried, but after overcoming the screen resolution problems and importing the file, I still don't have the contacts in the phone.

Odd, it worked pretty easily for me. I even have it syncing from an online carddav. Check to see which address book you are importing to? In Evolution go to Edit -> Accounts and check to see which address books are set up.

I only saw now that I had imported the contacts on my google account but not in the address book. I don't want my google contacts. I will do moore tests.

I first deleted my Google account and then tried to import the .vcf file with Evolution again.

Perfect, now I have all my contacts in the address book
Cool Cool 

Tnks!

(07-17-2020, 01:34 PM)On this line "scale-to-fit Evolution on" it does not seem to be an active command or script that I can run.  Is there some specific location I need to run it from?  Or was this a custom script you created to fix the result ion.   Evolution was installed correctly per the initial command you listed.root@ubuntu-phablet:/home/phablet/scripts# scale-to-fit Evolution onbash: scale-to-fit: command not foundBouc Wrote: Hi, is there an easy way to import contacts from a vcf file?
