Description Michael J. Chudobiak 2007-03-07 16:13:01 EST
Description of problem:

If the device triggering gthumb-import is a USB mass storage device, gthumb is
opened without the --import-photos option. No photos are imported. gThumb simply
displays the mounted location, without importing anything, which is annoying.

However, versions >2.2.0 of libgphoto2 include a USB mass storage "driver". That
means it will now import photos from a USB mass storage device. This feature is
relatively new.

This means that USB mass storage devices SHOULD be called with the
--import-photos option.

I think that the gthumb-import script can be reduced to one line:
gthumb --import-photos

This version of gthumb-import will launch the import function of gthumb if a
dcim or DCIM folder is found.

This requires libgphoto 2.2.x or higher (which FC6 and FC7 both have).

Corrected and updated gthumb-import script

Oops, some unnecessary mount points were kept. Here is a simpler version.

We should do this.
