Ubuntu Multimedia :: Shotwell - Transfer Its Data?
Oct 24, 2010
I need make the copy of my images system on the second PC. But I can`t transfer its data. It seems that the way to images is stored absolutly, for example /home/john/images/holiday. If the second user`s name is Marry, the way will be /home/marry/images/holiday and Shotwell don`t accept this.
For the past few days, i have been trying to fix a common error related to mtp devices such as creative zen. Because of the new updated libmtp8 library, it is impossible to transfer files into any mtp devices. However there is a fix that will remove this issue.
1. Get the older karmic version of libmtp8 from here: URL... 2. Install this package from terminal using: sudo dpkg -i libmtp8*.deb 3. Lock libmtp8 from the synaptic package manager, so it doesn't get updated. 4. Uninstall and then downgrade any mtp packages (through packages.ubuntu.com) that become broken after step 2 to the karmic version. 5. Enjoy.
I am starting to use Shotwell for my photo management in lieu of DigiKam. One tool that I liked in DigiKam which does not seem to be present in Shotwell is the ability to add/edit geolocation data. Is there anyway of working with geolocation data from within Shotwell?
Shotwell keeps on crashing when importing either from a folder or my iPhone. I am using it on an S10 netbook. I tried several versions but keeps on getting the same problem. I am thinking of cleaning everything from Shotwell and reinstall. I am running Ubuntu on an iMac via vbox (with less resource) and do not get the problem.
I tried searching but have not gotten any solid answer to resolve it.
I'm a desktop user and I rely heavily on Debian and shotwell to organize my images. I also use shotwell to publish images to a popular social networking site, Facebook. Recently I wasn't able to make shotwell publish into Facebook.
I was still on Debian Wheezy and decided it was time to dist-upgrade to Debian Jessie and hope that this would sort things out. It wasn't easy for me to upgrade - but I think I made a fairly satisfying one as I can normally use what I use my desktop for (work and entertainment).
I still cannot use shotwell to publish into Facebook.
I have tried downloading including the launchpad ppa and wanted to install shotwell, but get the following error:
libgexiv2-0: Depends: libexiv2-6 but it is not installable shotwell: Depends: libexiv2-6 but it is not installable Depends: sqlite3 (>= 3.5.9) but it is not installable Depends: libraw-dev (>= 0.9.0) but it is not going to be installed
Connected Camera. Imported photos to Shotwell.Shotwell asked whether to keep or erase photo from camera. I chose to erase.Started viewing the imported photos. After sometime Shotwell froze.Checked my photos folder, the photos haven't been copied there yet. Checked the camera; It's empty.There were 2 sqlite databases (.tmp files) in /tmp. Copied. I couldn't find those photos in either /tmp or ~/.shotwell or anywhere else.
I'm using Debian testing but I want Shotwell (and nothing else) from experimental. I also like to be notified when there is an update to Shotwell in experimental. Will that be achieved if I add experimental to sources.conf and the following to preferences? Package: shotwell Pin: release a=experimental Pin-Priority: 600
I'm on Debian Wheezy using Shotwell 0.12.3. I have a bunch of .MOV videos that I want to import to Shotwell. I choose import from folder and select copy pictures. The import proceeds and shotwell tells med the .MOV (and some .jpg:s) are imported. The pictures are imported with no problem and placed in an event 2014-10-19 as expected. But videos are placed in an event dated 2004-01-01 and not in 2014-10-19 where they belong. Obviously, Shotwell does not use the files last edit date. I though maybe there was some bad dates in the metadata and opened the files in both Totem and VLC player but concluded there is no such metadata available (as far as I can tell).So how does Shotwell determine the date for .MOV files? Where does 2004-01-01 come from? Seems random.
Then, I tried dragging all movies in Shotwell to the event where it really belongs. That is, where the recently imported photos got placed 2014-10-19. But instead of the videos beeing moved into that correct event, now all photos appears in the 2004-01-01 event.Undo that last step and close Shotwell. Then, instead I manually (in nautilus) copy the .mov files to the 2014-10-19 folder where the picures resides. Open Shotwell again which detects something happened and starts import the videos again. Unfortunatley they still show up in the 2004-01-01 event
Another wierd thing is if I manually (in nautilus) move the Shotwell 2004-01-01 folder away from the Pictures folder (out of reach for Shotwell). Then when I re-open Shotwell the event does not appear anymore - as expected. But If I try to once again import the videos, Shotwell tells me all videos are duplicates and does not import them!?! In other words, manually removing a folder from Shotwell mess up the database. And that database is obviously not used to populate the events tree in the gui.How do I get my video to appear in the correct event? Alternatively; is there a photo/video library in Debian that actually works?
Recently I had a situation where I had to transfer data from a PC to a Mac. Usually we simply convert the data as necessary, ie. bookmarks, contacts, etc. move the info to a dropbox account and use Windows networking to access the dropbox from a Mac. Well, there was a network issue and it was suggested that I boot to Ubuntu and do this. We do have Ubuntu on a flash drive but I was lost from there. Can anyone point me in the direction of documentation or assist me in understanding how this would be accomplished? I have a Mac, PC and Linux box at home so hopefully I have all the necessary tools to test this out.
How can I transfer data from one user account to the other? I wish to delete one of the accounts but before that I want to transfer all the data in that account to the other account so that my data is saved.
I am running ubuntu 10.4 lts desktop and ubuntu 9.10 server with the gui active. On both of these machines the data transfer rates over usb and lan have slowed down quite considerably. Also over multiple devices, not the same hardware everytime I try to transfer something.
i have got a laptop for the first time that i'll be taking to college. I have a lot of data on my PC which i want to transfer to my laptop. My computer has Lucid 32bit while laptop has 64 bit installed,Data is too much and transfering via usb drives will take a lot of time.. I do not know how to set up a network.
I have a number of queries but will start with one. I presently operate 11.04 Classic (no effects). OS is NOT set up as dual boot. As I am considering purchasing a new Desktop, I am wondering what is the best way to recover such things as folders, Firefox bookmarks etc. for four users.
I do have a external HDD which I guess could be used for a possible backup if that is the way to go! The new computer will probably have Windows 7 installed with which I assume I would probably dual boot.
I have installed Xubuntu 11.04. I want to see where when data is transfered by XUbuntu(through internet). In task manager i didn't find any such thing. In fedora there is system monitor where networking information is given to user where is such thing in XUbuntu. My main reason for asking such thing is that i have limited internet connection i don't want that Xubuntu update itself or any other such thing. you may also tell me how to stop updates of Xubuntu 11.04.
Is there an easy way to transfer Webserver data from one ubuntu install to a new one? I know I'll need to get the stuff in /var/www and (somehow) the Mysql data, but are there files elsewhere to get? Or is there a better way than trying to copy all the various files?
I bought a laptop today (Compaq Presario cq62) and loaded Ubuntu 10.04 on it. Everything has been running great, but the Wifi has been acting up. It connects to my router for a few seconds to a minute, and then stops all data transfer (although it still shows that I am connected to the internet). My other computers running Mac work fine. I took my laptop to another place with wifi, and it did the same thing.
The data transfer seems to stop when there is a lot going on. Whenever I try downloading new software, it gets to exactly 5% then stops. If I disconnect the wifi, and reconnect it works again for another minute. I may need to be walked through any terminal codes.
On that note, where would be a great place to read up on using Ubuntu (online book?)
i have a 200gb hard drive and im upgrading to a 1tb hard drive and i want all my stuff like settings and files on my new hard drive whats the best and easiest way to transfer all my stuff from the old hard drive to the new one
I am trying to transfer a lot of data from my laptop to my computer. Both are running Ubuntu 10.04 and both have Samba installed, and folders are setup for sharing. The laptop has a 56Mbps Wireless G built in module, and the computer has a Airlink AWLL6075 Wireless N USB Adapter 300Mbps. (I got the USB adapter working with the internet, since there was an issue with it just working out the box)
I have a wireless network, since wired is out of the question. The router is a Belkin Play N600 HD if that makes any difference. When i try to transfer the files across the speed of the transfer maxes out at about 785 Kbps (My Internet speed is 7Mbps=875 KB/s). It seems that the file is being sent to the router and then the internet and back to the router and then my computer.
I figure that bottleneck is my Laptop at 56Mbps, but that still gives a theoretical max of 7MB/s even at a low connection/link counting it at 24Mbps would still be 3MB/s. I even tried making a wireless Ad-Hoc network to transfer the files but when i went to Network it wouldn't show any shares.
I'm missing something to make it go faster and i really can't figure out what it is, maybe because I am too close to it.
I am quite newbie with Linux networking and I want to know if there exist a log in Linux where errors during transfers are stored. I mean, when I'm transferring data between two hosts is there any way to log somewhere (where?) the errors or warning during the transfer? That is, connection failures, TCP or UDP errors, etc.? Is there any "log level" to select the errors to be displayed in the log not to work with a huge log file?
I'm going to be needing to copy over 2 terabytes from one drive to another in a couple of days and I need something that I can use to transfer the files with CRC checking. Something comparable to Teracopy in Windows.
Open Source is an absolute must. I'm running on Debian and getting away from Windows to get away from all of the proprietary software. If it's going to be proprietary I might aswell just boot back into Windows as far as I'm concerned.
Some of the features that would be nice but not needed
-GUI (preferably gtk) -Pause/Resume (it's going to be a long transfer so it would be nice.)
Those would be nice but CRC checking is an absolute must have for so much data.
I'm getting a really low speed (2-3 mbps) while transferring data to my USB drive and external hard drive. I've heard this problem's there in Karmic but not in Jaunty but i have Jaunty and yet I'm facing this problem.
i am using NCTUns simulator and having problem while receiving message from an OBU. sending a message works properly but recving creates problem and fails. i am using exactly the same function as used by the developers in the demos but still no luck. i copy the code attch the screen shots to have a look
sendto() and recvfrom() are used for message transfer. they both return >-1 if they are executed successfully. please have a look in the screenshots. agentClientReportStatus is the built in packet format which im using here whose fields i filled manually are in the code below.
agentClientReportStatus *message,*mssg; int remainTime,n,n2,n3,i,sendingaddress,value; sockaddr_in cli_addr; timeval now;
