Ticket #644 (new defect)

kdepim-sync does not write formatted name (FN) corretly (using irmc-sync at other end)

Reported by: Phlogiston Owned by: cstender
Priority: normal Milestone: Plugin Format: vformat 0.40
Component: Format Plugin: vformat: contact Version: 0.38
Severity: normal Keywords:


If I add new contacts on my mobile that have only one name, then the formatted name field is empty after syncing to kontact. I think this should be generated.

I'm using the trunk version of today.

  • Version set to 0.34
  • Milestone set to OpenSync 0.40

I wrote the FN generator for OpenSync? 0.2x. This code was deactivated in OpenSync? 0.3x. I don't know why, but I guess this has something to do with the new merger.

Daniel, can you please comment on this?

I guess the best solution to workaround this issue is to provide (yet another) converter parameter. So FN <-> N conversion is done optionally for certain combination of device and PIMs.

The FN field in PIMs should be the "primary" or only field to display the entry in a list. It should fallback to N field if FN isn't present.... FN <-> N conversion is really ugly. I don't want see this enabled by default.

We should contact kdepim and evo2 upstream development about this issue.
