how to work in chaos

hmm, let's see where to start. i've used digikam for quite some time now (about two years) and manage most of my private and some of my work photos with it. however a significant amount of photos i take during and for work still remains on my windows machine as a lot of programs we use at work won't work in wine. however two things happened today. at first i got an unexpected promotion (which is good) and then my windows machine died (which is not good). while the machine itself is toast after the power supply screwed up (there are burn marks on the mainboard...) at least i could salvage the disks. to not mess things up further i took them to work and put them into one of our test machines. they are ok and selftests give no errors but the filesystems are chaos. unfortunately i don't have backups of all my photos, just my personal ones (how do you backup almost 3TB anyway?) so i let the filesystem and selfanalysis checks run the whole day. now i'm back home and trying to sort things out. i decided to not set up another windows machine but put the disk in one of my linux hosts. i can mount them only in readonly but i wouldn't dare writing on them anyway. i'm not sure if it's important, but i dumped the filesystems to my raid and mount them via -o loop to not damage the real disks. now i got the problem the directory structure is destroyed, i got thousands of folders which have names of files and files which have names of folders or no names at all (just a 8 digit number). the first file i looked at is system.ini and it's actually a jpg file.
question: is there a way to let digikam scan through all files and folders regardless of the mess and use its hash database to keep the old tags and comments? i used a samba share to access the photos so the local digikam database is not damaged and i mounted the images on the same paths.
i thought about using find and file to restore every files to its type but i don't have the space to copy them somewhere and i'd rather avoid editing the images to enable readwrite mount although they are damaged.
so, has someone an idea on how to proceed? i know, i will have to look through all the files manually at some point but i would rather postpone this as far as possible for now.

Rescue applications

I suggest that you start with rescue tools like "foremost" (http://foremost.sourceforge.net) what was originally developed by US government. Basicly with:

"foremost image.dd"
or then you can search all filetypes and pull them to wanted place.
"foremost -t all -o /to/rescue/dir -i image.dd"

You can try "autopsy" what is written in perl (www.sleuthkit.org/autopsy) and this you should run for disk image.

With Autospy you have tools to read data from disk image created with dd. Like ils (list inode information from the image), ffs (finds the file or directory name using the inode) and icat (outputs the file content based on its inode number).

So in short, first if you get the inode information, then you use ifind to get the file/directory name and then icat to output the content once you've worked out whether it was a file or directory you were looking at (tricky) and created somewhere to put the content.

Sleuthkit's fls command will list files and directoriy names from image.
Like: fls image.dd -r -f ext3 -i raw (replace needed filesystem). Then you can get some results with: "r/r * 10: myfile.txt"
And then trying to retrieve the content of this file: "icat -r -f ext3 -i raw image.dd 10>myfile.txt"
Or you can try using "sorter" script what allows you to search particular types of files, like RAW images etc.

There is alternative for dd tool for recovery like "ddrescue".
What you can try too. It is faster because it skips bad secors and after the whole disk it goes back to try to reread them. basicly it is just "ddrescue -n /dev/hda /media/recovery hdaimage.raw rescued.log"

Well, 3TB is lots of data, but it still should get backupped. Diskspace is bretty cheap these days, especially when talking about professional jobs.

There is still a part of this

There is still a part of this which is relevant to digikam: retaining tags. As far as I can tell DigiKam has no way to "fix" broken databases, even for very simple cases. e.g. I recently reinstalled, changing my username, as a consequence all of my tags became detached from their targets. I'm sure it;s possible to fiz somehow but it would be nice if there were an easy way to fix it from within DigiKam (particularly if DigiKam would prompt the user when it found discrepencies).

rescue

it seems i didn't explain the problem properly, so i will try again (and hopefully succeed this time). only the directory structure and the files and folders names are mangled, the files themselves luckily are still there. the filesystems are ntfs so i had to use the windows tools to check and repair them. now instead of a nice organized folder hierarchy i just got 128 folder in with each having 256 or 512 subfolders. files and folders lost their names, timestamps and access rights but the file contexts are intact. it seems the names of all files which were more than three folders deep are lost, which makes all my photos. as some of the filenames are recycled in many of the folders i started adding all the types to the digikam config page and it works, despite being .dll or .exe files they are recognized and sorted properly. however there are thousands of tiletypes and files named like "februar" (february in german) i can't seem to get recognized at all. for as long as possible i will refrain from making any changes to the dumps or the original disks until i have prove that files have been lost.

You can try photorec from

You can try photorec from testdisk project - http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec It's great tool for such file recovery. It can get the file types you need by searching for example jpeg headers on the whole disk/image. I've had simmilar problem few years ago - when I've bought a new hard drive. I had Windows XP with FAT32 filesystem and I was moving my data to new disk and then Windows just simply rebooted - it destroyed all FAT copies and nothing could fix the filesystem. Then PhotoRec helped me to get my photos back. I've get even the ones which I erased myself. Some of them didn't have original names but they were jpegs and PhotoRec has get them, too. I think it can work with NTFS, too. If not PhotoRec, you can try GDB (GetDataBack for NTFS) - it's great tool, too but it's for Windows only and it's commercial application which you've got to buy.

Filetypes

It's strange to see what people have come to expect. Digikam is a photo and image management solution, not a disaster recovery tool. Get your files cleaned up and renamed properly and it will work. If You don't have enough space to copy the files just use find and create a similar folder structure and fill it with symlinks to the original files. Attach .jpg to their names and it will work, no matter which was their original type.

> "strange" Indeed. And

> "strange"
Indeed.

And backups help.

Make them often, and you will lose less data.

But there are some questions regarding lost tags and using hashs to re-assign image files to names and tags which I find valid to ask for here.

This needs some special advice from a technical person.

My suggestion would be to
(1) keep a backup of the digikam database file in it's current state!!!
(2) then try to recover whatever you can recover with other tools,
(3) and then you may try to get some help from a programmer to try to re-match the data in order not to reenter all tags etc. again.

The database file contains info about the structure of the image folder, filenames, etc., which might indeed be helpful for desaster recovery, so the question of the OP seems legitimate to me.
But every case is different, and even with a specialist there'd still be a lot of manual work to do.

solution

after some thinking i came to the conclusion that the folder structure is not that important as i use mostly the exif and ipct tags to structure the photos. and from april 6th on my company switches to a web-based program. so i tried the brute force method, created a folder and via find filled it with symlinks, replacing all / with _ so they get uniquely named. a short look with dolphin confirms it works but Digikam told me the folder contains only a few dozend photos. then i remembered Ben's suggestion and renamed all the symlinks by adding .jpg to their names and now it works. names and filedates are lost, but since the tags and exif data are still there this can be corrected later on, when i get enough space to copy the files somewhere else.
concerning backups: i only backup my linux hosts regularly as only they have dvd burners which i never got working on windows esp. the bluray burner which lets windows crash when i put it in. i discovered that backups via samba mounts are a bad idea, several times i got damaged files so i gave that up. i had no personal or important files on the windows machine other than my work photos. and if everything fails i _have_ backups of them too, but they would take an eternity to restore, currently almost a thousand dvds.

when will packages be available?

Do you have any idea when packages will be available for [K]ubuntu, got a serious case of the can't-waits on this one ...

openSUSE packages

Are available in the KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop project of the openSUSE Build Service, see the openSUSE KDE 4 pages for how to add the Factory repos.

Please help!

Works

Me again.
It works if I do it directly in Synaptic. Don't know the difference but it doesn't matter. I have 0.10 :D

Works for me now too!

works great thanks for the killer software! I love it!

/lib/libkexiv2.so.7: undefined symbol: _ZN5Exiv28ExifDataC1Ev

Hi,
I've just installed in Jaunty 64bit.
Starting digikam gives me this error:

digikam: symbol lookup error: /lib/libkexiv2.so.7: undefined symbol: _ZN5Exiv28ExifDataC1Ev

Anyone an idea?

Thanks

Look at Exiv2 package...

Sound like the depency to Exiv2 library is not set properlly. Check Exiv2 package (certainly 0.18 release)

Gilles Caulier

I've got libexif12 Version:

I've got libexif12 Version: 0.6.16-2.1ubuntu1 installed.
Is this the right one?

solved

there were some outdated libs from an old svn install.
Sorry and Thanks for help

btw: greate program - I really love it!

Congratulations for great work

Hi Digikam Team,

first of all I want to congratulate! You are all doing great work! And for the last two weeks I checked the release status about a 100 times a day. I am really looking forward to use the latest version.
I am using digikam for about 3 years to manage my personal images and I really appreciate your work!
So now I will join the waiting queue behind "pbhj" and wait for the Kubuntu packages!

My sincere thanks!

Andreas

Kubuntu packages

Thanks a lot for Digikam! It's a fantastic product! Do you know when the Kubuntu packages will be ready?

Thanks a lot!

Thanks a lot to all digikam developers for creating this outstanding program! I'm looking forward to test 0.10, but honestly, even more looking for to testing the new development version with the growing batch queue manager - will this version now be moved to the usual digikam svn repository?

Gandalf

probably this week end

Andy will manage code from 0.11 branch in svn to move it in trunk this week end. It can take a while because Marcel and him use local Git repositories to play with new code.

Me, i only use svn, not git, because i'm working on more than one computer at the same time. it's more simple to sync.

Today i'll probably have the my friend's macbook pro back. Let's see if i can provide a macport for it in few days!

Fantastic! I (and I'm sure

Fantastic! I (and I'm sure many others) ha've been waiting for digiKam installer for Mac to appear!!!
Good luck with it!

great!

I'm really looking forward to a macport! :D

Yes a mac port will be cool !

I'm waiting a mac port with impatience :D

GPSSync on RAW

Hi Gilles!

Congrats for this huge work. I have been trying the beta and RC releases on copies of my photos regularily, it really seems nice. I have a couple of important questions to ask you before using it on my real photos:

-can I write GPS info on RAWs? I don't want to spend time doing it on JPG, it's a complete waste of time for me, especially as I often create several JPG versions of a RAW. I remember you told it should be possible, maybe by activating a special option as writing on RAW is often considered as dangerous.

-is there any way to import photos in a specific directory and sort them in directories per year/month/day ? I plan to switch from Fspot to digikam, but would be nice to be able to keep the same structure for my directories.

thanks in advance!

My response...

::can I write GPS info on RAWs?

Yes, for NEF, DNG, and PEF... for the moment. It's a limitation of Exiv2 library. But work is in progress by Exiv2 team to support new RAW file formats in writing mode...

...But.. you don't care with digiKam, because it store GPS info in database ! you can geolocalize what's you want, and later, when Exiv2 will be improved, synchronize image metadata with digiKam database. There is a tool to batch sync metadata in Tools menu.

::-is there any way to import photos in a specific directory and sort them in directories per year/month/day ?

Well, use Calendar view instead Albums view.

0.10.0-albumgui07

Also, are you tried Timeline tool to search image by range of dates?

0.10.0-timeline

Thanks for your quick answer.

Thanks for your quick answer.

Metadata DB might do, as long as I can do everything from Digikam, and unfortunately, that won't be the case. Example: I process my RAW with Bibble. So if I geotag my RAW in Digikam, then process it with Bibble, my JPEGs from the photo won't be geotagged, problem :) I can geotag using GPSsync I think, but it does it only from GPS logs. And sometimes I want to manually geotag a photo. I guess I will have to wait until Exiv2 improves enough with CR2 :)

And I know about the calendar view, I was talking about the actual directories where the files are saved. I currently use this structure: /year/month/day/
I would like to keep it with Digikam, but I'm not sure if it can import photos this way. I may use Bibble5 to do the import then, as you can customize the folder structure for import. Then I can have Digikam scan the folders to find all the photos.

You could create a log file

You could create a log file from your manual GPS data if you want to use that program.

Look at the structure of the log file with a text editor and try to duplicate it for your data.

You could also (learn to) create (or have create by somebody) A script/program for easing this procedure if you want.

Nearly 500 bugfixes...

...and Qt4! A great day for desktop Linux this is. Digikam is the photo manager that my family keeps going back to, after trying F-Spot, Picasa, and many others. Thanks to Gilles and the rest of the wonderful Digikam devs!

sixth try on failing the captcha

Congratulations!

Thank you for this great release!
This program makes the ideal companion for my newly-bought EOS 450D.

BTW: As i am just trying to do some astrophotography, could someone give me a hint on how to get to work Registax 5 under Wine (CVS build on x_86)? My copy likes to crash at the end of stacking, saying "Unable to allocate memory on display 0.0).

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Is there news about the OSX port?

Congratulations!

Made my day.

It's an incredible amout of work, and the result is just amazing !

A KDE Lovers.

Félicitation

Congratulation for the whole team,
to provide the Open Source community with such a wonderful software
I hope that with the port to windows and MacOS the number of users will grow fast

Bye

Congratulations!

I use digiKam for managing my photos since I use Linux, and it is by far the greatest Program I've ever seen, especially the Image Editing functions are really great.

Congratulations and thanks for all the great work

Thank you for this great software. I have been using the new KDE4-digikam since the RC-Release and I must say that it's such a pleasure to use.

Thanks for all the hard work. Keep it up.

Great Work!

I like to see digkam getting more and more powerful, stable and user-friendly for each release. And it is even getting faster. Great work!

But there is one thing I miss and I assume that I am not the only one. Wouldn't it be nice to have a select list in the geolocating window where it is possible to store some (maybe 10) favorite locations? Currently it is quite annoying to enter the coordinates for the studio, at home or a handful number of other locations that most of my pictures usually are made at.
What do you think about it?

Great Work!

I fully agree in both points: great work, indeed, and such a favorite list would be useful. An integrated batch renaming (using exif) would be cool, too.

Wait wait wait. You fixed

Wait wait wait.

You fixed _all_ those bugs for a single release?

Wow. Just wow.

As far i know, those are all

As far i know, those are all bug fixes what are done after last stable.

This is awesome! Gone to make

This is awesome! Gone to make a donation...

Great Work!

Nothing more nothing less than Great Work digiKam Devs! I use digiKam from couple of years and now 0.10.0 from rc1(?) and I'm really satisfied with this project. It's great and I couldn't imagine better tool for my family photo collection. KDE4 port is even better than I could think of before I tried it.
PS. Could you at least make the reply/adding comments here without need of 'Preview'? It would be less time to get through captcha when it would show once, not twice.

Thanks for the release. Keep

Thanks for the release. Keep up your great work!

Unfortunately, I have to stick to 0.9.4 because digiKam 0.10.0 crashes while migrating to the new database and 0.9.5 still didn't hit the Gentoo tree yet. :(

PNG exif editting

Is exif editing for PNG supported yet? I thought it was as of exiv2 0.18? The metadata editing dialogue comes up read-only on my PNGs.

yes. it's a bug in libkexiv2

yes, you can. just update libkexiv2 code to trunk. i have fixed a stupid bug few week ago...

Gilles Caulier

Suse packaging...

I'm using the Open Suse build of Digikam 0.10.0 and it looks like libkexiv has been built against libexiv2 0.16. I'm not sure how best to flag this with the Suse KDE packagers.

Paul

You need 0.18

Anyway, you need Exiv2 0.18 to edit PNG metadata...

Compiling Digikam for Mac OS X

Hi,

what I am enjoying most, is that this Version runs under Mac OS X. So there is no need more for me to start VirtualBox or reboot under Linux.

If you want to know how I was able to compile Digikam for Mac OS X, take a look at my homepage:

Instructions in English

Instructions in German

Keep up the great work!

Could some kind soul post

Could some kind soul post end-to-end instructions on how to have 0.10.0 installed with Ubuntu 8.10 / GNOME? I understand that some repos need to be added (not sure what the latest set though) and then there's this security key thing (which I don't understand much) after which Synaptic / Aptitude will take care of things .. this is as far as I've gotten after scouring Internet for half a day, but this is not the info I can jump into action with :( Please help!
