Subject: [gentoo-user] Gtkam getting on my nerves, again.

1 Howdy,
3 I use Gtkam to get pics from my Canon camera. I already put up with the
4 fact that it crashes a LOT. It really gets on my nerves but sort of
5 getting used to that. Now I have a new issue. When I tell it to save a
6 picture to say /home/dale/Desktop/Documents/Camera-pics/2013/Yard/ it
7 always saves them to /home/dale. It does this regardless of what I have
8 asked it to save them too. This used to work fine when I had this sort
9 of thing mounted on a directory called /data. It would go something
10 like this: /data/Camera-pics/2013/Yard/ That would work fine. When I
11 got my shiney new 3Tb drive, I moved all that over to my home directory
12 and ever since then, Gtkam saves to the wrong place.
14 I have changed the permissions for /home/dale and EVERYTHING under it
15 but still get the same thing. I'm 99% sure it is not a permissions
16 issue. This is what permissions look like:
18 drwxrwxr-x 27 dale users 4096 Dec 9 2009 2009
19 drwxrwxr-x 37 dale users 4096 Nov 16 2011 2010
20 drwxrwxr-x 31 dale users 4096 Dec 30 2011 2011
21 drwxrwxr-x 20 dale users 4096 Nov 12 01:20 2012
22 drwxrwxr-x 4 dale users 4096 Jan 30 03:00 2013
24 [ebuild R ~] media-gfx/gtkam-0.2.0 USE="debug nls -gimp -gnome"
26 This is likely not Gtkam itself but some helper program. What could
27 cause this? Anyone else run into this?
29 While I'm at it, I have tried other programs too. DigiKam crashes when I
30 try to connect to my Camera to download. It can't even think about
31 getting pics.
33 Thoughts?
