Hello, Henk, I encountered the same problem yesterday. Import from my camera was not possible under Leap 42.2. My last successful imoport of pictures was in Nov. 2016 under Leap 42.1. I didn’t fiind a bugreport for this matter in KDE bug reports --KDE Bugtracking System- Components for Gwenwview. Time allowing I will write one. Ebkr
Not really. Gwenview has the feature to create file names of the copied files according to patterns like
Thus getting rid if the nothing saying file names generated by cameras.
Digicam (the other one offered in the popup) can’t. Dolhpin can’t either.
There are solutions to that (using the CLI tool jhead), but it is always frustrating when users are loosing features they “always used”. And it is when just one of the first simple steps in starting work on your vacation photos simply vanished >:).
One of those things that let end-users despair about computers in general (and Linux in this case). It should simply be there and “work”.
There are more things that Gwenview did (and I hope will do). It finds all the images even if the camera has a directory structure to store them (I have one camera that creates a new directory for each day). With Dolphin you have to visit all those, in Gwenview all is shown as thumbnails.
But the main problem is of course that people, once having found out which tool works best fulfilling their needs, are confronted with this and then have to find several bits and pieces to do what they did so many years.
Maybe confronting people with unexpected hurdles is something that fits in e.g. an army training course, but I am not sure it is something that creates trust in the continuity of the features offered by the computer platform you depend on.
Yes, and there has been way too many examples of this lately! May I add to that, moving the buttons around and changing the shortcut keys within apps, for no other apparent reason than to “change” things for the newest version (of KDE, as that seems to be where most of these headaches are lately, but of course not limited to that environment).
I have wasted a lot of time since moving to 42.2 just undoing mistakes caused by hitting the wrong button or using the wrong shortcut, simply because they have been changed from what they have been for the past seems like a decade! All major traps to high velocity production touch-typists, and a super irritant.>:)
