last week when trying f-spot for the first time with just 1 pic on the camera to try it out everything worked fine...

yesterday i tried to transfer 34 pix from an outdoor car show and all went well until it didnt accept/know my camera any longer...

i am new to pc's/9.04 and quite possibly downloaded something that conflicts with g-spot ???

so my question is --- can i start f-spot form square 1 ??? is there any way to revert f-spot to the way it was when 9.04 was first installed ???

thanks...

I don't use f-spot myself. To reset f-spot to defaults, look in ~/.config folder. There should be a folder for f-spot where its settings are stored. Delete the folder and re-open f-spot.

Try

apt-get purge f-spot
apt-get install f-spotpurge-option will delete also configuration files

Actually it should be this:



sudo apt-get purge f-spot
sudo apt-get install f-spot
