            Bug ID: 325447
           Summary: digiKam Doesn't Copy Pictures to Samba Share Mounted
                    with autofs
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: 3.4.0
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Import

I have a samba share mounted with autofs. I have set the uid and gid so I have
proper access to the directory and I am able to create/delete files. However,
when attempting to import pictures, the process ends almost instantly and no
pictures are copied, but subdirectories for date-based subalbums are created. I
end up with my sambe share full of empty folders.

I am also sure that autofs has actually mounted the directory before I attempt
to import the pictures.

I have had success in the past mounting the share using cifs in /etc/fstab, but
I find that this slows down the boot process considerable and autofs is a much
more slick solution.

(On a side note, is digiKam still unable to trigger the autofs automount at
application startup? I don't mind putting an 'ls <share>' in the autostart
settings, but it would be nice if I didn't have to. In fact, the website still
states that mounted shares don't work at all.)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure samba share is mounted by autofs and you have read/write access
2. Launch digiKam and create a new album pointing to the share
3. Attempt to import pictures to the share
Actual Results:  
The process instantly completes and no pictures are copied, however directories
are created based on subalbum rules.

Expected Results:  
Pictures should have been copied to the share directory.
