First hurdle: for the life of me I can't import my contacts. I have a Nextcloud instance, so I installed the Contacts app and imported my old phone's contacts.
In GNOME's parameters, I set up my Nextcloud account as an external account. I can even access it in Portfolio, the file manager.
But GNOME Contacts is still obstinately empty. And of course, no option to import contacts from a file. 🙄
@normandc If you configure Nextcoud as an online contact, you should have a switch to sync contacts (just below calendar) which should make the contacts available. Importing contacts locally works best with evolution....
@mobian configure Nextcloud as an online contact? I'm confused. In Gnome Contacts you mean? As a single contact? 🤔
