Dear listmembers,
dear Bruce,
at the very first point: thank you for taking your time to look into this and 
to check so thoroughly.

I understand your point but I simply have another one: I've got my wife use 
digikam and she's happy with this. And she did that for several years now. If 
I tell her now, well, we have got a new camera but you'll have to fiddle 
around and remove that tiny card and put it - well, next issue, my PC has no 
SD-card slot at all - see my problem?

I had mentioned something similar on this list some years ago: the user will 
not ask for reasons why something does work on M$ and does not work on linux 
(or unix  or whichever OS). The user will tell you: it has been proven to to 
work, so if you want me to use this, make it work (not trying to force anyone 
into any action, please do not take me wrong).

So, in further contrast to your Ubuntu findings I can tell for openSUSE that 
the behaviour is very consistent between 3 PC's and 2 OS-versions (10.3 & 

Reading & downloading, viewing - no issue - deleting (and highly probably 
writing) - nope.

Any  ideas are very welcome, if I can provide any debug logs - just let me 
know (and tell me how to do it!)
thanks again
