View Full Version : digikam 3.5 download very slow on Ubuntu 14.04

June 10th, 2014, 03:59 PM
I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 13.04 to 14.04.

Since the upgrade, the rate at which digikam downloads images from the camera has decreased by a factor of 100.
Before the upgrade, the transfer rate was about 2 images/sec.
After the upgrade, the transfer rate is about 1 image/minute.

I submitted a bug report, and I got the following reply:

Nikon camera use Gphoto2 camera driver.

Ubuntu releases, You see introduced time latency with last internal components.
This want mean that libgphoto, or libusb, has a problem (or another sub

As a test, I downloaded gphoto2,which also uses libgphoto for downlods. When I executed
>gphoto2 --get-all-files
the files transfer rate was about 2 images/sec.

I tried and failed to submit a bug report using ubuntu-bug.
