Print assistant

Hello All!

I'm rather new to Digikam and I love it so far, but I have much to learn yet. 
I am presently having a problem with the Print Assistant. I go into the Print 
Assistant and do everything it says. I choose the size and all that, it goes 
to the next screen and I crop the picture the way I want, but when I hit 
finish it just goes back to the main program and doesn't print anything. I've 
tried using the print assistant as far as it goes, and then using the standard 
print command, but the print command doesn't do what I told the Print 
Assistant to do. Am I missing something here? I'm sorry for the newbie 
inexperience here.

Oh, FYI, I am using Digikam 4.1.0 on a laptop running Windows Vista

Thanks so much for any help

Tags and everything related to them

Hello,

I'm once again fighting with tags and this battle seem to have no ending.

I figured out that digiKam once again read data from 5 different
namespaces(IPTC, Xmp digikam, Xmp Microsoft, Xmp lightroom) and only
modify it to IPTC and own XMP namespace.

This is bad because:
If you wipe -> trigger write and then read -> all deleted tags are back.

Some users said that namespaces that are not from digiKam should not be touched.
Well this is impossible, you either:

1. grant digiKam to delete and modify all namespaces that it can read
2. remove the ability to read from that protected namespace

Any other combination result in total mess on read/write.

I'm waiting for suggestions about do you prefer the most: 1 or 2

After update my Digikam keeps crashing

Hello.
I would need some help, please.
I use Linux Mint, version 17 Cinnamon 64. I've recently updated Digikam to
version 4.0.0. Since then, it keeps crashing every time I try to edit my
collection. It crashes after few steps, no matter what tool I use. It
usually happens when I click OK to confirm an action or when I click save.
Previous version worked just fine.

The bug message says the following:

Hang while saving or updating JPEG on the network

Hi folks,

I'm trying to diagnose a problem I'm seeing with Digikam that has shown
up in the last month or two.  I don't exactly recall when the problem
first turned up, but it's seriously started to cramp my work-flow!

My current set-up is a desktop machine which contains my portfolio drive
and a laptop where I do a lot of my editing.

I primarily use the laptop to edit my photos, with the album directory
shared via a SMB connection (via smb4k).  I've used this set-up for
years, but the problems seem to have only started occurring recently,
and I'm trying to figure out where in my set-up the issue is occurring.

I use the sidecar files for both my RAW photos and JPEGs, in addition to
having the data written to the JPEGs as well.  In what seems like a
random event, I'll update the metadata on a JPEG and Digikam will stop
writing the information to a file, say at 80%.  If I click on the
thumbnail of the JPEG then the metadata commit will complete, but
otherwise Digikam will not seem to finish the write.

If I edit a RAW file in Digikam's Image Editor the editor will now
almost always hang while saving out the JPEG, where previously it worked
like a champ.

I enabled kdebugdialog and get the following output when I save the new
JPEG:
digikam(1760)/digikam (core) Digikam::DMetadata::setImageTitles: ""  ==>
Title:  QMap()
digikam(1760)/digikam (core) Digikam::DMetadata::setImageComments: ""

digikam 4.1 bugs

Hi,

I finally got an update to digikam 4.1, and it feels fast and nice.

However, within the editor, some bugs resist, notacibly the problem with 
preview sizes seems to persist.'

This problem is very odd, it does not affect all tools, and the behavior is not 
consistent, sometimes the order of tools used affects the behavior.

After conversion from RAW, using the curve tool, the initial preview is 
missized, on my screen it is set to 12%, which may be the preview size in the 
album view, with two sidebars visible.

In my opinion, if the size in the editor is "fit to window size", this setting 
should be sticky when activating tools (whatever setting in the editor window 
should stick, in fact).

Another problem is with the preview of the effect of a tool. I use consequently 
"mouse over" type preview, and Since 4.0, I have to move the mouse into the 
preview and out again to see the preview, which was not the case in 3.6 - a 
regression :0

Let me know, if I should rather file explicit bugs than explaining here!

digikam-doc cannot be installed


Hi,

with the upgrade to 4.1. I get the following error message:

error while attempting to overwrite
"usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/eu/kipi-plugins/rawconverter.docbook", which
is also in kipi-plugins-common 4.4.1.0-trusty~ppa1

I'm not sure if I translated the German error message as it would
appear in English, but the meaning should be the same. Any idea how I
can solve this?

Regards
Martin

Demosaicing doesn't use certain methods

Hi,

looking for something else, I noticed that Digikam versions 3.5 and 4.1 
(both the one from OpenSuse 13.1 and a local build) don't use several of 
the demosaicing options: AmaZe, LMMSE, VCD.

This might be a problem with my version of libraw or libkdcraw, but in any 
case, it would be nice to get a warning when certain methods aren't 
available.

regards,

Re: Digikam Face Detection does not work for me

Yeah, thank you for your ongoing support. I managed to have it run face 
detection properly by doing the following steps: (Debian Sid)

1.    Download the following repository and install it to 
/home/$YOURUSERNAME/.kde/share/apps/

https://projects.kde.org/projects/extragear/libs/libkface/repository/revisions/master/show/data

2. Create a haarcascades folder within the new 
/home/YOURUSERNAME/.kde/share/apps/libkface      so that you will get

     /home/YOURUSERNAME/.kde/share/apps/libkface/haarcascades/

The folder will be EMPTY.

3. Copy all files from
      /home/YOURUSERNAME/.kde/share/apps/libkface/data    to
/home/YOURUSERNAME/.kde/share/apps/libkface/haarcascades/ folder, data 
should contain the necessary .XML files.

At least it worked this way for me. It was a bit cumbersome since I 
copied every single file via terminal because I have no idea how to copy 
files into folders which my user has no write access to, but at least it 
worked after that.

Thanks again for the help, much appreciated!

Windows Version not working anymore

Hello there,

I cannot get the windows version to work anymore (3.5, 4.1 or 4.2)
First kio_thumbnail crashes a few times and then the Main Window just freezes.

Is there a way to update kio_thumbnail? Or any other work around?

BR
Christoph.

Re: Digikam Face Detection does not work for me

Thanks for the reply, I checked for my opencv version and it is 2.4.9, 
which seems to be up to date according to the sourceforge website. Does 
anyone else have any ideas?

Today I tried manually creating a face marker and then ran the scan 
again, still no result. When I use Detect & Recognize or just Recognize, 
the progress will finish within 1 second. To me this makes sense for the 
recognization (because i have only 1 face marker), but why does this 
happen with d&r, too? Maybe this could be a hint for anything?

Anyone else have ideas?

Digikam Face Detection does not work for me

I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong, so maybe somebody can help me.

I'm running Digikam 4.1.0 on Debian Sid if that is of any matter.

So, here is what I do: I start digikam, go to the Persons tab on the 
left, click on "search for faces", set it to "merge" (but I have tried 
all 3 options already out of pure desperation). I set the search options 
to "all collections", "all tags", and the search quality to 100 (slow).
Digikam does not show any results after scanning my images for about 2 
hours then, no matter if I ran face-detection or face-detection and 
recognition.

Thanks in advance
