gnome-contacts not showing call nor sms button
#1
I am encountering a issue with gnome-contacts.
Whenever I open a contact, there is no button showing next to the phone numbers, for calls or sms.

Next to the email addresses, I can see the button for sending an email (which works OK and open geary), but no buttons are showing next the the phone numbers.

I checked in /usr/share/applications/gnome-mimeapps.list, which did not have any
Code:
x-scheme-handler/tel
x-scheme-handler/sms
lines, so I added these lines :
Code:
x-scheme-handler/tel=sm.puri.Calls.desktop
x-scheme-handler/sms=sm.puri.Chatty.desktop
but still no luck after that.

Any suggestion ?

Mine just work - I did originally import my contacts via Evolution but probably irrelevant.

Can you manually dial numbers?

Are your numbers properly stored as MSISDN (i.e. including CC with a + prefix)?
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.13 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/ext4/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced

Yes, dialing directly from Calls is OK.
As for the numbers, I have all kind of formats, including proper MSISDN with "+", and the buttons are showing for none of them.
It used to work, and probably got broken after an upgrade/dist-upgrade, but since I don't use the functionnality that much, I don't know exactly when it occured.
