Postby Sandersson » Tue Jun 18, 2013 8:33 am

Have a problem. (Using Xubuntu 12.04, F-Spot and Flickr).
I Want to export pictures from F-spot to my Flickr account.
In F-Spot I choose a picture, then export to Flickr. A popup appears.
I enabel the autorisation in the browser F-spot direct me to, and closes the browser as asked.
I Then fills out the F-spot-export settings.
But when I want to pres "OK"/"Export" the button is disabel?
Anyone knows what I have to do?
Please help.

There was a problem in f-spot sending email photos, where the image was put into /tmp but was deleted after just 30 secs if you did not press the send button in your email client fast enough. I wonder if the same problem occurs with exporting to Flickr

It was necessary then to lengthen the time in a gconf key gconf/apps/f-spot/export/email/delete_timeout_seconds, though the key did not even exist by default, and had to be added manually by right clicking in the right hand pane of gconf-editor and giving it a decent length timeout value. I don't know if f-spot uses gconf now as dconf seems to have taken over from gconf for many apps, but it may be a good place to start looking.
Xubuntu 16.04 user, and loving it!

Has found an alternativ.
The Program "Upload Photos to Flickr" can upload folders.
You jost have to drag them from the filemanager into the program. If you chooses folders from the program, it do not work with folders.
It is a ok workaround.
