Hi, i deleted the thumbs folders within .shotwell and copied the pics and
the DB manually.
The issue is adressed in
in the meantime.
Would be brilliant if you'd add the following workaround to your FAQ:
the issue is solved for me with this workaround, however it would be nice if
you'd integrate this in future.
I do understand if you don't have the capacity building it right now -
however i don't either as I'm full-time ocupied by the mailman Project
I'm sure there will be a better person who might already know VALA who could
figure this out.
Anyhow I'll get a new Cam with GPS tags - so maybe I'll digging into the
code around the next year. But as this would require me to learn a new
language this will not happen right now.
Anyway thanks for your answer - and your contributions to the Open Source
World. Although there are some feautres missing I really enjoy using
