Add contacts with VCF files
#1
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.


Edit to solve:
From https://wiki.mobian-project.org

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
