            Bug ID: 312054
           Summary: cannot add a collection on the network in linux mint
                    (gnome-based environment)
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: 2.5.0
          Hardware: Ubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Kioslave
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: kdebugs at herr-melcher.de

I'm using Linux Mint which is a gnome-based environment. I have installed a lot
of kde libs, so basically digiKam is running.

My photos are on a file server which I can access through smb and sftp. Using
Dolphin I can access that folder (both smb and sftp work, so I assume the
necessary kio libs are installed).
The database is running on a shared mysql on that same server.

When I try to add the photo directory as a "collection on network share", I can
select that directory. The shown path is
"sftp://martin@srv0.example:2220/home/shared/Fotos" or
I can browse the folder's contents with both protocols using the file selector

When I click OK, the file selector dialog closes but the path is not added to
the list of collections.
No output is written to stdout/stderr in that case. The only output is written
on startup:

QSqlDatabasePrivate::removeDatabase: connection 'ConnectionTest' is still in
use, all queries will cease to work.
digikam(3152)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "" with KXMLGUIFactory!

I think this is not related.

I can add that folder through gvfs (not natively but through the legacy mount
"/home/martin/.gvfs/shared on srv0/Fotos"
gvfs is the gnome equivalent of kio. This is not an option for me, as this path
is different for different users and from different machines.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Linux Mint (or probaby any other Gnome-based desktop), many KDE-libs an
Dolphin are installed.
2. Put photos on a network share via smb or sftp
3. Check that the share can be reached/browsed with Dolphin
4. Configure photo database through mysql on server
5. Select folder (sftp or smb) as a collection on network share.
6. Click OK
Actual Results:  
The folder is not added to the list of collections.
The folder is not scanned for photos.

Expected Results:  
The folder is listed as a collection with the path I had chosen (e.g.
"sftp://martin@srv0.example:2220/home/shared/Fotos" or

The photos from that folder are added to digiKam.
The share is accessible for all networked users (using the same database,
provided that they can access that shared folder)
