What happened to the script-hooks in kaddressbook ?

I am trying to execute a script when clicking on a phone number in Kaddressbook, but when I go to Preferences -> Configure Kaddressbook there is only the LDAP menu but no sign of the script-hooks menu that used to be there in 3.5. I am using 4.10.4 now, BTW.

When I click on the phone number now it fires skype, which seems to be the default behaviour, but I can not find any configuration file anywhere.

Is this default behaviour hardcoded or is it configured somewhere ?. Has the script-hooks feature been dropped altogether ??

Two possibilities:

- it was dropped;
- It was lost during the 4.x port.

I will try to ask around to see which is the case.

After a brief talk with one developer, here's what I found out.

The option hasn't disappeared: open Settings > Configure KAddressBook, then click on "Dial phone action" and select "Use external application". Like this you can point this to any script or app you make.

Sorry, but when I go to Settings > Configure KAddressBook y have no option/pane/clickable button/whatever labeled "Dial phone action". The only menu available is the "LDAP server" configuration menu, nothing else.

I do not know if I am missing something here or if it is a problem of the Fedora distribution only.

KAddressBook 4.10.4 compiled from sources has a page "Contact Actions" in the settings dialog. On this page you can define the actions "Show Address" (Web Browser or External Application), "Dial Phone Number" + "Send SMS" (Skype or External Application).

Well it seems that it is a problem of the Fedora distribution.

Apparently the file "kdepimlibs/akonadi/contact/kcm/akonadicontact_actions.desktop" was not distributed in the software packages. It has been fixed now.

Thank you all.

PS: is it possible to mark the topic as solved ?
