Package: digikam

Severity: important

When I try to import fotos from a Canon 20D (which I do infrequently, so last 
test was last month or so) in this way:

start digikam
connect camera
switch on camera
import from digikam using auto-detected Canon 20D

I get a new window 'Canon EOS 20D' which has a moving bar at the left bottom.
No pictures from the camera appear. In 30 seconds, the digikam process in top 
goes to 7 GiB RES and my system crawls to a halt.

On shutting down the camera, digikam becomes 'unstuck' and reports that it is 
trying to download thumbnails, which of course fails. I do get a nice list of 
pictures that are in the camera, but since the camera is now off, I can 
download nothing. The camera uses a Compact Flash card of 8 GiB, the import 
window in Digikam claims 100 pictures, mostly .JPG, some .CR2.

I don't have an adapter to read this compact flash card without the camera.

Importing fotos in windows (using Canons own program) works fine.

This used to work fine in Linux as well, up until a month ago or so.

Kind regards,

I have closed this report as it is against a very old version of digikam which 
is no longer supported by Debian.

I am sorry we have not been able to resolve this issue for you.

Upstream also provide support for digikam here:

If this is an ongoing issue, could I ask you to file a new report against a 
newer version of digikam which is supported by Debian.
