    Default Digikam - Pictures in albums no longer showing

    Running openSuSE 11.1 and Digikam 1.1.0 under KDE 4.4.1 with most recent updates as of today. I started digikam and all settings are still in place and database file exists same as always. All subcollections in the albums show zero pictures. Opening file manager shows all contents exists.

    What gives?

    Try this and see if that helps:

    Goto Tools > Rebuild Thumbnails

    and then choose to rebuild all. It's going to take some time, depending on how many photos are in there, but it saved me in the past in a similar situation.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I rebuilt all thumbnails, however, all
    albums still show as empty with no items.

    Anyone have any more thoughts? I'm hoping I didn't lose the database information somehow, had many geo and comments stored.

    Another thing I just tried was copying the digikam database and then removed the database and let it rebuild the whole thing from scratch. Still nothing shows. I rebuilt the thumbnails database and it is 522mb in size, so obviously it sees the pictures exist but every album count shows as zero.

    This didn't happen until I updated to 4.4.1.

    I posted a bug report on KDE forum and provided debug output as requested. The issue is related to kioslave for digikam albums does not start even though all packages are updated.

    I tried downgrading the Digikam package down to release 9.4 from the repo-oss and presto, all album contents once again appeared with no other package changes.

    I've tried the latest digikam 1.2 release and 4.4.2 release of KDE and still albums show as empty even though contents exist.

    Is there a packaging issue on the openSuSE Repositories?

    I'm still running the 9.4 release at this point. Digikam forum claims it's packaging.

    I just tried the latest updates from Factory and Digikam 1.2, still no joy. Switched back to 9.4 from repo again.

    I know this is an old post, but I just had the same problem in a fresh 11.3 install.

    After reading on Digikam website I found the problem. The repos don't update the dependencies automatically.

    so check these dependencies and make sure they are manually updated.

    libqt
    kdelibs
    libkipi
    libkdcraw
    libkexiv2
    libgphoto2
    liblcms
    libtiff
    libpng
    libjasper :
    libkdepimlibs (optional)

    Then it would work.
