where kaddressbook store data

Wed Feb 19, 2014 5:34 pm
I have a tri-boot laptop with windows opensuse 12.3 and 13.1, and I would like to share contacts in kaddressbook among the three systems, usually to do this kind of things I move the folder or file where data is stored in a common place and make a link where it is usually stored by the software.
I searched in /home/user/.kde4/share/apps/kontact/ and /kaddressbook
in /home/user/.kde4/share/apps/kaddressbook/csv-templates/ I suppose there are templates that I saved, but the phone numbers don't seem to be in any of the above folders.
where the data are (phone numbers, names, surnames, etc.) ?? so I can share them among the system??

manythanks, :-) ciao :-) pier

note: location will depend on type of address book used

location should be shown with Kontact -> contacts -> right click address book(s) -> address book properties

a better question might be what is the best type of address book to use when sharing between systems

manythanks, looking at your solution I don't need to have any link but only set the correct folder in the common place for all the system.. :)

good question... :) I'm starting to use kontact/contacts-kaddressbook and I'm trying to find the better solution to manage all my contacts on the pc and in google for my phones too...., and now I'm seeing that kaddressbook allow to create a kind of address books also for google, but it doesn't works....
And your opinion on the best type of address book to use when sharing between systems is welcome of course :) :)

sorry but not familiar enough with the options to give an opinion of the best format for you needs (as there won't be concurrent access it might not matter), suggest you open a new thread

If you have access to a CalDAV / CardDAV server, it is the best option (open protocol), otherwise you could use Google's services. In the latter case, if something does not work please post a separate thread detailing your issue.
