The user data of the application is in the folder ~/.local/share/linphone
The main db files are call-history.db, friends.db, linphone.db,
message-history.db. In .config/linphone, there are only 2 files :
linphonerc and linphone.conf
Linphone 4.2 should read your old configuration. If not, you have to
check your logs.

I was not aware of that thanks. Fwiw though, this user data
directory is not the one used by flatpak versions of linphone, and I
think that this is a problem other users will face (on linux at least). The
flatpak user data location is:
Since these locations are not automatically searched by (any of) the snapshot I
tried, and since you may have other users 'out there' that like me, once
used a (old) distro version of linphone, then moved to flatpak, and now move to
'Appimages', it would be good, imo, to a search 'upon launch' all
possible locations linphone has used in the past and present, detect
multiple presence of these files and offer the user to pick the right
ones, clean the others ... my 2c

Ok, now I moved those in appropriate locations

Then it properly reads the friends.db file, so I can see all my
contacts, but for some reason, from the message-history.db, it only
displays the message history for one contact, no idea why that is - not
a big deal but I thought I'd mention this 'fact' to you, since it may
really bother other users 'out there' ...

While 'at making some suggestions' ...
I would at least display these locations - the full path, not (just)
the directory basename - in the Settings -> Advanced 'notebook page'
Also, it is very strange to click on any of the locations listed
by linphone, both in the Settings -> User Interface and Advanced
notebook pages, then click any folder selection button, and surprise
surprise, it does _not_ list the true location of the item ... but
instead, it dislays the location of the last selection made (by any
other use of any qt based application) ... iiuc. It really should show
the 'current' loction of the item, as 'seen by linphone'.
Imo, every location a user may select should always display the full
path of the current selection, so
Download folder: /home/a-user/Downloads
[ and not
[ Download folder: Downloads
And as said in my previous email, it would be nice to a have in the
Settings -> Avanced:
