I can't seem to figure out just how to import Google contacts to my kadressbook.

Do I have to email myself the .csv file or do I put it on a flash, or what?

To transfer your contacts over simply do the following:

Go to your gmail account and export you contact list as .csv. After this, simply go to your e-mail program and select File > Import. Contacts should be somewhere in this list.

Note: I may not have all of the specific detail correct. If someone else sees that I have misinformed in this post, please edit it. Thank you!

There is a guide here:

On Ubuntu the packet to install is called akonadi-kde-resource-googledata.

Unfortunately it did not work for me, as the akonadi-resource crashed while trying to configure it.
