Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 479686
re-enable auto download of photos in KDE4
Last modified: 2009-01-23 09:26:23 EST
Description of problem:
When I connect my digital camera to my laptop running Fedora 10, KDE, the insert notification pops up to say a mass-storage device has been attached but doesn't offer digikam as an option to open and download photos.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10, latest updates installed
1. Attach a USB mass-storage camera / usb key
2. look at the insert notification area, note that digikam is not listed as an option.
Have to start digikam manually and select to import photos
digikam is offered as an option from the notification area. In Fedora 8 a window is popped up offering digikam to download photos.
rpm -q digikam
In the meantime, be aware that F-8's version of digikam (0.9) and F-10's version of digikam (0.10) are different beasts, and not 100% feature or expectation-wise compatible.
Ops, apologies for missing the package details:
[steve@mini-manicminer ~]$ rpm -q digikam
Thank you for the note about it not being feature complete I was not aware when I upgraded that that was the case.
I wasn't sure if this was a bug or not as there appear to be many "auto-insert" related features that do not work in F-10.
Given that this is now marked as "not a bug". Please could you let me know when this feature is intended to return to the Fedora 10 version of digikam, if in need there is any intention of this feature being re-implemented.
While I understand that it is a new implementation as an end user having it missing is a real pain.
On my old Fedora 8 install this feature would be used several times a week, and in some circumstances several times a day. It feels like a huge backward step to have to plug my camera in, load digikam, then navigate through a number of menus simply to download my photos.
All "ask upstream" questions,
I'm not a direct developer, and am not aware of their plans or intentions.
