I've found that after the KDE update the other day, Digikam is working but won't accept any new photos or create any new albums. Attempting to overwrite existing photos returns:
"Access denied. Could not write to digikamalbums://%2Fhome%2Fbob%2Pictures@/New%20Year%202006/dscn0349.jpg"
These pics are maintained in my /home/bob directory and I can paste new photos into the correct folders in this directory but they won't appear when viewed with DigiKam.
It would seem to be a permissions error, however I tried 'chmod 777 /usr/bin/digikam' and still doesn't work. Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling, still no joy. Funny thing is that I can modify existing photos (adding text, etc.) and the photos in my /home/bob directory are then modified. I've tried to use the Digikam Handbook, but it has no entries, although the Kipi Plugins handbook is fine.
