Thread: Evolution Importing Contacts

  1. #1

    Default Evolution Importing Contacts

    I use to use Ubuntu, while using Evolution I did a backup of the calendar and contacts I had. The calendar imported just fine, however, the contact information threw an "Other Error", listing permissions as a possible problem. I changed the permissions to 777, however that didn't fix it. I'm assuming there is something in the difference between Ubuntu and Opensuse versions.

    Either way, is there a way to successfully import the contacts, or is there a way to extract them from the previous backups. It looks like the backup contacts are in a .db file. Any way to read them directly?

    You may have some luck with the evolution-addressbook-export utility:

    Ubuntu Manpage: evolution-addressbook-export - export addressbook content from Evoluion
