Summary: Preview fails when importing images: digikam uses a
Platform: Kubuntu Packages

In thumbnails view, when I'm importing images from my camera (Canon Powershot
A710 IS) and I click on an image to activate the preview (or, that is the same,
I click on the proper button in the toolbar) Digikam says it cannot load the
The problem seems to be a wrong path: Digikam correctly retrieves the
thumbnails but when needs to load a bigger preview it uses a wrong path. Here
there is an example of output message if Digikam is launched from a shell:
digikam(24732)/digikam (core) Digikam::PreviewLoadingTask::execute: Cannot
extract preview for "/store_00010001/DCIM/IMG_7278.JPG"
No location could be retrieved for url
The correct path should be, instead,
file:///store_00010001/DCIM/100CANON/IMG_7278.JPG . In fact, my camera stores
photos in subfolders of a parent folder DCIM (located in the root of the SD
card), and these subfolders are named 100CANON, 101 CANON, and so on. Digikam
doesn't use the complete path.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect a camera and go to the import panel
2. Switch from thumbnails view to preview mode by clicking on a thumbnail
Digikam says it cannot load the image
Digikam should load a preview
I think that, for reproducing this bug, you need a camera that stores files in
a structured tree. For example, mine (Canon Powershot A 710 IS) stores them in
a structure DCIM/100CANON/. Digikam misses to go through the whole path.
This problem is only related to the import mode: preview in album view works.
