Software :: Get Contacts In Kaddressbook To Be Seen When Writing An E-mail?

Mar 14, 2011

For some reason after installing 11.4 and re-entering my contacts, none are visible in the select area of a new e-mail. The only items visible are recent recipients of e-mails. I made sure that I was checking "All" as an option. I had entered new contacts in the "Default Address", and then tried in "Personal Contacts" to see if that would work better. I had no luck either way.

OpenSUSE :: Kmail: Imported Contacts In Adressbook But New Mail Doesn't See Them

Jul 24, 2010

11.3 KDE 4.4.4

I've imported my contacts in adressbook and I can see them in Kontact - Adresses. But when I compose a new mail, I can't select any of my contacts. There is a combobox to select between following choices:

Default Adress book
Distribution list
recent adresses
Selected adresses

But none of these options shows the contacts I have imported. And I can't find an option to make my imported adress book the default adress book.

OpenSUSE :: Kmail: Contacts From Addressbook Missing In "to" Field When Sending Mail?

Mar 12, 2011

Opensuse 11.4 KDE

I've imported a vcard addressbook in kontact. When I create a new mail and start typing something in the "to" input field, no contacts are automatically added. When I click the "select" button, nothing is found, except for the recently added email addresses. Nothing from my imported addressbook though.

This also didn't work in opensuse 11.3 KDE. Am I doing something wrong here?

OpenSUSE :: Use Kaddressbook Groups In Kmail?

Mar 18, 2010

how to use kaddressbook groups in kmail?

I can create groups, but when I send an e-mail to one of these groups it is sent to group_name@localhost, which, obviously, is not what I want. Some versions back this worked perfectly, but now it seems that there is no way.

I use opensuse 11.1 with kde 4.4.1

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Make Groups In KAddressBook

Oct 18, 2010

I cannot make groups in my kaddressbook. The icon and the menu item are both grayed out. This happens the instant I select an address book, either akonadi or default.I read a post sometime ago that made me think this might be related to mysql. But, mysql is running. About the only setting available in the menu is for ldap servers and its blank. Groups are useful. I'm running 11.3 and KDE 4.5.2

Ubuntu :: Can't Use Distribution Lists ('groups') In Kaddressbook / Kmail

Dec 4, 2010

Did anyone manage to use distributions lists (called "groups") in kaddressbook ? (in Kubuntu 10.04)

I can't imagine an email client without this feature, but here it is:

* in kaddressbook I can create a new group and add email adresses in it. Say I call it "Family"

* now I expect to right-click on it and have a menu giving me the possibility of "send an email to the group"... nope.

* OK, I go to kmail, new message, and on the right of the address slot, I click on "select". Then ah! it seems I can select my "Family" (now it's called a "distribution list"). I click "Add", and now my recipient is "Family"... I'm a bit suspicious, but OK, let's send the message...

of course it doesn't work: I immediately get <Family@my-laptop>: Recipient address rejected: Access denied

* OK, I want to do it again, but now after "select", I am curious and open the "Family" list (by clicking on the "+" on the left). Surprise: most of my contacts in it appear empty (yes, empty lines) !But not all of them...So I can't even manually select them all.

* Conclusion: groups of contacts (or distribution lists) are completely screwed up in kubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restoring KAddressBook After System Upgrade?

Jun 5, 2011

After doing a complete backup, I ran the update overnight. Ubuntu 10.04 was on my computer the next morning. While poking around, I noticed that the Kontact KAddressBook had no entries;Instead, I had display with three columns;Column #1, "Address Books" had the cryptic entry 'std.vcf' Clicking on it did nothing. Apparently, all my addresses were gone. Solution: Finding and Reloading the Addresses My addresses were in the vCard format, located in


After checking to see that my backup file of std.vcf was the same size as the system file, I did the following, modified from instructions provided by Joao G. Peixoto joaogpeixoto Within the Kontact KAddressBook, I deleted the empty std.vcf addressbook; Edit Delete Address Book Then I generated a new address book to hold my addresses;

Add Address Book
KDE Address Book (Traditional)


The [next] command took me back to the 3 empty columns. In a minute or two, 'Names' (column 2) began to fill up with my old contact listings

OpenSUSE :: Where Are Contacts In Kontact

Apr 6, 2010

I just reinstalled openSUSE 11.2 for the first time. I took a backup of my /home first of course and then copied over to my new install whatever I wanted, like mails from Kmail and some other stuff. The only thing I'm missing and can't seem to find is my contacts from Kontact? Are they included in any of the other apps? 'cause I can't seem to find anything even related to Contacts in /home/.kde4/share/apps where all the other stuff from Kontacs where.

Something has gone wrong Sorry about that. This problem has been reported to Ubuntu One engineers and we'll fix it as quickly as possible. This may be a temporary problem, so try again in a few minutes.

It's been like this ever since I first tried to use it (about a year or so now). I'm not sure how to help to get it fixed.

Fedora :: How To Rescue Evolution Contacts

Oct 6, 2009

I am a Fedora 11 user and, being curious of it, I installed openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 8 after saving my previous /home (Fedora 11) in a FAT32 partition. I deleted Fedora, I installed openSUSE, and I copied the .evolution folder from FAT32 to openSUSE home. Inbox and Sent mail were correctly recognized, but not the account data neither the contact list.

OpenSUSE :: Evolution Contacts Can Not Be Migrated To Evo 2.32.1?

May 11, 2011

Since I move from opensuse 11.3 to 11.4 Evolution adressbooks do not workI appreciate any tips in howto fix addressbooks or how to migrate address books. Evolution (OS 11.3) has the data in ~./evolution while Evolution 2.32.1 (OS 11.4) has the data in ~/local/share/evolution.These are observations from what I have tried.1. The backup from Evo 2.3O.1.2 does not work under restore in 2.32.12. If copy ~/.evolution and ~/.gconfig/apps/evolution form to 2.32.1 (that was the way to migrate under 2.30 and before).

2.1 the setup is transfer and works2.2 the mail is transfer and works (including the folders)2.3 the contact folders are corrupted: some can not be open, some work, some can not be deleted. I change permission without any success. 3. I delete ~/evolution (which has no effect in the new evolution), ~/.gconf/apps/evolution and ~./local/share/evolution. Then I reboot. (this is key) After I start evolution everything is new. I can make contact folders and they seems to work fine. I can add and delete contacts etc. Now If I import vcards created from evolution way to preserve all the contacts)and try to restore the folders something weird happens: the contacts transfer to the folder specified but they are also transfer to the other folders. If I delete the contacts in one folder all the duplicates are also gone. If I tried to delete the folders I can not do it

Ubuntu One :: Can't Sync Evolution Contacts

Dec 4, 2010

I have been syncing files to ubuntu one without any problems for some time. I can't get my evolution contacts to sync. When I try to copy my addressbook to ubuntu one I get message "error adding contact". I can't get rid of this message - only way is to force quit. I'm running Maverick, and I did a clean re-install to try to get rid of problem - didn't work. Currently when I open the ubuntu one addressbook, there are three blank entries which can't be deleted or edited.

Debian :: Using A Contacts Manager In Gnome For Business?

Jun 26, 2011

I guess pretty much everyone here is using Gnome. I've used KDE for 14 years, but kaddressbook is simply too primitive. And they've made it worse lately. Is anyone actually using a contacts manager in Gnome for business? I need advanced features like mail merge, ticklers, etc. Which one is most advanced? I want it to save contacts as vcards, not in proprietary formats, so the data is survivable, and ideally individually in directories, not as one big vcard wad.

Trying to use Evolution, but it segaults every time I hit Calendar; missing some icons from a Gnome package I can't figure out which one. (gtk-missing-image, stock_bell, stock_notes, etc) Also Evolution can not remember my mail certificates, and asks to approve them every time I start... for 16 email accounts this is a pain.

Fedora :: Sync Contacts Between BlackBerry And Evolution On 10?

Jan 20, 2009

HOWTO: Sync Contacts between BlackBerry and Evolution on Fedora 10

1. Overview

Open source tools are available to sync a BlackBerry with Evolution but it appears these tools are not supported by Fedora 10. The main thing that seems to be missing is the Barry plugin for OpenSync. Maybe the reason that this package has not been created is that Barry requires OpenSync version 0.22, whereas F10 ships OpenSync version 0.36. This HOWTO explains how to build all of the required components from source code. If the required package becomes available, this HOWTO would then be redundant.

This entire build and installation is performed in the home directory of a non-root user to ensure that no system files are broken. Some of the commands in this HOWTO must be run as root, when this is the case it is stated explicitly and otherwise the commands in this document should be run under a non-root account. The username for the examples below is erik.

2. Be a Developer

When you install F10 you are prompted to specify the uses to which your computer will be put. Hopefully you selected software development, if not your machine will probably be missing many of the utilities required for this HOWTO.

3. Initialize Evolution

Open Evolution and click on all of the buttons at the left to ensure that the necessary databases are created.

4. Prepare The Environment

Ubuntu Security :: IM Spam From Genuine Contacts

Mar 8, 2010

I, as many here, have friends on different IM accounts (and btw, so great that we have pidgin and empathy and not have to deal with 3 different softwares to talk to them) and of all that I have... which are not so many... one of them sends me spam, not all the time, but it happens and I kind of feel sorry for her so I'd like to see if there's a way for her to retake control of her account or if she can't do anything at all with it.

I have other friends in MSN but I get spam only from her and she's given up on how to fix it cause she doesnt know how to. I did a search (and keep looking for more in the web) and so far it doenst look promising (but is also because I dont know what else to do). The problem is I get messages which I know for sure are spam, cause her english is more limited and the messages are very polished in that regard.

I got this from another discussion elsewhere: "troutbot = These bots get your IM from scraping the Internet screenname and connect you randomly to someone else. While you're talking to the troutbot, they're just an intermediary connecting you to some other guy who also had his IM scraped." So far the times I get spam... the other side never answers, but if my friend is online she can. I thought that on these IM services... if you are logged in nobody else can log in with your username/password...

Ubuntu :: Contacts On Emesene Display As Offline?

May 24, 2010

Sometimes when using Emesene, a contact who I am talking to will appear offline randomly. I normally assume they have gone offline, but then I will receive another message from them as normal so they obviously are not. Then I can't tell when they actually sign off.

I thought it might be because people are setting their status to appear offline. Which on Windows messenger, if you are talking to that person, they will appear as online only to you.

So either Emesene doesn't do this, or there is some other error that is just making people appear offline randomly.
