Phone Book Backup Ubuntu Phone (Aquaris E 4.5)

April 25th, 2015 1 comment

If you have an Ubuntu Phone, like the Aquaris E4.5 from BQ. You can backup your contacts the following way:

  1. Install the “Terminal” app from Ubuntu Core App Developers
  2. Open the app and type: syncevolution --export /home/phablet/Documents/utcontacts.vcf backend=evolution-contacts
  3. Connect phone to computer, copy the vcf from Documents

Do not follow the instructions on this website. The sudo leads to an “[ERROR] creating source registry: Cannot autolaunch D-Bus without X11 $DISPLAY”, while the “database=Personal” leads to “[ERROR] database not found: ‘Personal'”
