            Bug ID: 311394
          Severity: normal
           Version: 2.9.0
          Priority: NOR
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
           Summary: import fails silently
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: kavol at seznam.cz
          Hardware: Other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
         Component: Import
           Product: digikam

this is a spinoff of the bug #311393, so please see that bug

what I'm trying to solve here is not the support for that particular camera,
but the fact that choosing the menu entry does nothing, it just fails silently
without (visibly) reporting any error

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect some unsupported camera
2. choose Importovat [Import] => Fotoaparáty [Cameras] => Canon Inc. Canon
Digital Camera (automaticky detekované) [... (autodetected)]
3. wait until eternity
Actual Results:  
nothing happens

Expected Results:  
as soon as the program finds out about the error (it writes "Failed to get
information for the listed camera" to the console output ...), a dialogue
window appears, telling something like:

Importing failed
Reson: Failed to get information for the listed camera 
Failed to detect camera with GPhoto2 from Solid information

... and possibly including some hint what to do next (e.g. configuring the
camera manually, or reporting the camera model upstream - Solid or Gphoto? - to
get it known, or whatever may be best reaction to this particular error)
