gtkpod can sync with evolution contacts, but it's a well-hidden feature

Bug #5532 reported by dierre on 2005-12-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gtkpod (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

gtkpod has the great feature of allowing to keep in sync your evolution contacts and your ipod, but this is very carefully hidden from the end-user.

Actually, in order to achieve that, you should:

1) "discover" the existance of the scripts under /usr/share/gtkpod/scripts
2) start gtkpod, open the preferences/tools tab, insert "/usr/share/gtkpod/scripts/ -d /usr/lib/evolution/2.4" in the appropriate textfield.

Both steps are very obscure to a novice user.

I propose that there should be a default settings that does so, and possibly some "advertisement" of this functionality.
