from your description, I am not sure whether the problem
is already caused from the process of copying.
When using directories (or filenames) with spaces,
it is very important to protect them from being split into
parts. (Personally I would strongly recommend to use
either underscores from the very beginning, or write
"PozeNuntaErol" instead of "poze nunta Erol", but this is surely
a matter of taste).

Could you try the whole procedure in systematic way:
a) copy the files from one computer to the other,
   under the directory name /poze (where all your images are, right).
   In this step digikam should not be running.
   Which command do you use for copying?
b) Then check, whether the files ended up in the right plac
   and that no additional directories were created
   (e.g. due to spaces in the Directory names and insufficient
   quoting during the copying)
c) Start digikam and see how the new folder is scanned.
d) leave and enter digikam: no problems should arise.

Also note that 0.9.2 packages are out for kubuntu, see
(However, I don't think that your problem is affected by
upgrading. Still the feature improvements are worth
an update ;-).

Best, Arnd
