Gnome Contacts Calling

I noticed a couple of days ago that you can no longer call from GNOME-Contacts.
Just wondering if anyone knows if it will be coming back?

All fine now.

No. I still cannot hit a call button in Contacts and have it dial their number.

Do you have this phone icon under the contact?

No I don’t. What version do you have?
I have 43.beta

I have the same version and use a local address book.

Huh, that’s weird.

Can you show me an example contact?

Want to try reflashing with a new Byzantium image to see if your issue disappears?

Not really.


Okay, perhaps your Librem 5 requires a modem firmware update. You can contact Purism support for instructions, as I am unable to publicly distribute them.

You can check your current firmware version using bm818-tools.

I already have. It was when it updated to 43.beta that it changed.


What does your top bar look like?

Looks identical to me.

How about a distribution check?

lsb_release -a

Otherwise, I doubt there is any difference between our situations here, other than how recent our PureOS images are.

Nothing seems out of the ordinary here, so let me know if you have any better ideas - I will be reflashing my Librem 5 USA in the meantime.

What does your output from apt list gnome-contacts look like?

Identical output to yours, except that I only used one space between list and gnome-contacts for my input text, and the last part is [installed,automatic].

You can deal with that package “issue” by using sudo apt-mark auto gnome-contacts.

Note that I just reflashed my Librem 5 USA, but based on current information so far, there does not seem to be much difference between our software. I reimported my contacts and I still have the phone icon under the contact name(s).
