How to import contacts into the phone book app?
#1
I have the Manjaro Beta Edition. I'm trying to import my contacts into the phone book. I can tell it to import, I can navigate to a csv file of contacts, and I think I select the file, but then nothing happens and there are still no contacts.

What format does it want, and any idea what I'm doing wrong?

You are doing it right, but use the vcf format instead.

acrux, there must be more to it than that. I'm now trying to import a vcf file, and same results: I select the file, then nothing.

Hmm, I have imported a vcf file several times without a problem... If the file has correct format then I'm out of ideas...

Oops, correct format was the sticking point. I fixed the format issue, caused by my careless editing, and all is well. Thanks! It would be nice if the program popped up an error message, even something relatively uninformative like import failed or so would help.

Hi, I'm on the latest manjaro-arm with Phosh. I don't find any options to import contacts with gnome-contacts. Can you please provide more specifics about what program you were using and/or how to find the option to import from vcf?

Eric, I was using whatever program handles contacts under Manjaro Plasma. It shows up simply as Phonebook, and the only option it has is Import Contacts.

Hi. You can install Evolution and use scale-to-fit. It has a contact import option in one of the menus. Maybe someone knows a simpler option?

Hi,

I really hope the possibility to Export/Import contacts, will be avable in a new version of Gnome Contacts.
