Description Jed Campbell 2007-09-06 04:34:48 UTC
Version:           0.9.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

The export menu no longer has any entries.  I have tried reinstalling the packages (digikam, kipi-plugins, digikamimageplugins, showfoto) in many different combinations, and from version 9.1 and 9.2, to no avail.

I booted the gusty tribe 5 cd, and the export version works just fine.  I would prefer not to reinstall, but would like to find out why the menu has stopped giving choices. 

Any ideas?

Did you use Achim Bohnet's packages referred to  at 
http://www.digikam.org/?q=download/binary/ ?

(Sometimes running `kdeinit` just once after installation did help 
wonders for me in a situation sounding similar ...)

Which versions are listed under "Help"/"About digikam"

All options in Export menu are provided by kipi-plugins. Check in setup/plugins page of digiKam if plugins list is available and if all tools are enable.

Tried 'kdeinit' - no dice.

Versions = 
Kipi library 0.1.5
KExiv2 0.1.1
Exiv2 0.12.0
PNG 1.2.15beta5
Gphoto 2.3.0

The plugins page lists a lot of plugins, including the a few export ones (ipod, remote galllery, html, etc)

Maybe it's time to switch to kubuntu?
Comment 4 Jed Campbell 2007-09-06 14:24:37 UTC
Using Achim's packages upgraded me to 0.9.2 final

Kipi 0.1.5
KExiv2 0.1.5
Exiv2 0.14.0
KDcraw 0.1.1
Dcraw 8.60
PNG 1.2.15beta5
Gphoto 2.3.0

Still no export menu.  Thanks for all your help so far.

Whats wrong here with your packages ?

Comment 6 caulier.gilles 2007-11-06 14:42:14 UTC

Are you installed "kipi-plugins" package on your system ?

Comment 7 Achim Bohnet 2007-11-06 21:17:37 UTC
That's really strange.  I've received no other reports about
problems with kipi-plugins menu entries.

The 21 kipi plugins are listed and enabled in settings -> configure digikam ->
kipi plugins?

What's the output of

 strace digikam 2>&1 | grep kipi | grep /usr/lib

You should get repeatedly for each plugin:

open("/usr/lib/libkipi.so.0", O_RDONLY) = 3
access("/usr/lib/kde3/kipiplugin_jpeglossless.la", R_OK) = 0
stat64("/usr/lib/kde3/kipiplugin_jpeglossless.la", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=1738, ...}) = 0

Another check would be: create a new test user account  and start digikam

I have wiped everything and re-installed kubuntu gutsy--problem solved.  Thanks for your help!

*** Bug has been marked as fixed ***.
Comment 10 Ben 2008-06-07 23:46:26 UTC
I had the same issue after installing from a gutsy backport list.  I could see all the options in the Export menu but they were grayed out.

removing the digikamrc file in .kde/config fixe this issue.
Comment 11 Ben 2008-06-07 23:47:33 UTC
my bad, that should be  ./.kde/share/config/digikamrc
Comment 12 caulier.gilles 2018-02-04 08:35:11 UTC
Problem fixed in 6.0.0 where all tools are now in digiKam core
