After emptying my camera recently, I noticed a bunch of the photos were cluttering up my home directory. It turns out that the default photo manager for Ubuntu had a bug in the latest release, and while it's fixed for the next major release, they haven't released a fix for 9.04.
If you're dealing with this, here's how to fix. Full details are here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/f-spot/+bug/354264
- Download an updated version of F-spot from this page for most computers (or here for 64-bit).
- Open the .deb file and install it. You will need to enter your password.
- Go to this page and download the fix_fspot.py file at the top of the page.
- Open a terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal).
- Assuming your downloads go to your Desktop, here's what the command looks like to fix your files:
- python Desktop/fix_fspot.py Photos cimg*.jpg
You will probably need to change the "cimg" part of that command to match whatever your camera names the files. This last command moves all of the photos into the Photos directory, broken down by year, month, and date directories to match the rest of your set.
