Vcard contact list? - czgunner - 03-12-2021

I put my Vcard contact list on the sd card mounted in my Mobian pinephone.
I can't figure out how to make the phone see the list.
Is there a folder I need to put the file in? If so, where is that located?
Thanks!

1. sudo apt-get install evolution -y
2. click .vcf file to import contacts
3. sudo apt-get purge evolution -y && sudo apt-get autoremove -y
(import contacts via "evolution" and remove it after this is done)

Hmm. Got evolution open and can't figure it out. When I go to file, import. The program either freezes completely or I cannot select anything except back arrow.

you need a file explorer to click on your .vcf file (sudo apt-get install krusader -y)

Same issue. I get to the import data screen, can't see most of what's to the right (not sure if there is a horizontal scroll), "import data", ""import location", and "import data - vcard" are not selectable, only the back arrow. I appreciate your help, and don't want to wear on your patience.

1. change the display scale in settings from 200% to 100% and you get a better view and can click the buttons
2. for long term use, enter in terminal "scale-to-fit krusader" and you get it squeezed into view
