           Summary: direct burn in k3b (I don't want to need to start the
                    burn process manually)
           Product: digikam

When you do a backup of your photos on a CD or DVD digikam creates a k3b project and starts k3b to burn it. Nevertheless, in k3b you still have to start the burning process manually. 
In the digikam dialog there should be an option "start burning without user interaction". Enabling this, you could force k3b to burn your project directly without having to press some buttons after the creation of the project. In my opinion this could easily be done by a call to k3b's dcop interface ("dcop k3b K3bProject-0 directBurn", k3b version: 0.12.17). Reason why I would like this: At least on my computer, the creation of the thumbnails takes more time than burning the actual CD. So I want to start the whole process and than do something else (maybe leaving the computer alone while having a coffee or something similar). Right now I have to return to press two buttons in k3b... :-(

Thanks a lot for digikam - in my opinion everything you would expect from your photo management program! Really useful!
