           Summary: Album names get created with *spaces* in the filesystem
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.9.1
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED

         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: kde richardneill org

Version:           0.9.1 (using KDE 3.5.6, Kubuntu (feisty) 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu14)

OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.20-15-generic

Spaces in filenames and directory names are pure evil. If I create an album named "My Holidays in France", from the GUI, may I ask that digikam creates the directory as "My_Holidays_in_France" ?
Conversely, underscores should be displayed as spaces.

The problem wouldn't matter quite so much, except that digikam uses its own database - and that means that modifying filenames from the shell after creating albums is likely to cause pain.  So I can't just run my "remove_spaces.sh" script on the whole photographs directory.
