F-Spot not showing images

Asked by Richard A Bevis

I imported about 500 .jpg images from cd with F-Spot. While F-Spot was open it showed all the images and everything was fine. I moved the images from the photos folder to the pictures folder so they would show on the screen saver. Today, even though I can go to pictures in the file browser and view the images, and they show up in the screen saver, when I open F-Spot the screen is blank. Clicking anywhere in this field will bring up a little orange box (the image?) with information about it displayed in the sidebar. Clicking "Edit Image" brings up little white bordered black boxes across the top of the screen and a larger one in the middle with the corner curled up. What gives? Using Jaunty. Thank you. R

I moved my images back to the "Photos" folder and can now view them again in "F-Spot." However, they no longer show up on the screen saver. F-Spot acknowledges their existence in the "Pictures" folder, I just can't view and edit them from it. Other than copying the images to both folders, is there a way to keep them in the "Pictures" folder so they show in the "Screen Saver", but also in "F-Spot?" I'm also guessing any image I edit in "F-Spot" from the "Photos" folder won't edit the duplicate image in the "Pictures" folder. Probably not a huge deal because I have the disk space, but it seems a little redundant to have two folders with the same images just so I can display them both ways, i.e., "Screen Saver and "F-Spot." Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. R

Ureeka! in Ubuntu, or is it Oohreeka in Ubuntu? Anyway, upon further investigation of the Screen Saver, I found an option to select F-Spot Photos. All I had to do was tag some as favorites and there they were flashing across my idle screen and editable in F-Spot.
