    Slideshow button is blacked out - FF on Ubuntu Linux
    My slideshow button is blacked out in all galleries. I am on Ubuntu 9.04, FF 3.0.11 with flash plugin 10.0 R22.

    I am attaching screenshot of blacked out button. I click on blacked out button and it briefly flashes the slideshow message "press esc to exit full screen..." and I can see the banner at the top with pics for a sec, before it returns to current view of gallery.

    As far back as I can remember I haven't been able to use the slideshow. Just remembered because I tried to show someone the slideshow feature.

    Thanks for any tips that might help..

    We do not officially support Linux but there is no reason it should not work for you. I have actually seen this issue before. I think the problem was fixed by allowing javascript, or flash. Also, make sure you are not using a blocking plugin for Firefox. Some of the ad blockers will mess with the buttons.

    Ubuntu
    Anyone have any experience with Ubuntu? Before I take the next step and download it, I want to know of any possible ramifications with my smugmug website.

    I've searched on dGrin for this info and haven't found any and if this isn't the correct thread for this question, please forgive.

    Blessings

    Download a livecd version of ubuntu and try it out. This is an image that loads into memory on your system and does not overwrite anything permanently. See if it does everything you need it to, and then reboot to your normal desktop.

    First off Thanks for at least having a thread that is dedicated to Linux.

    While reading through the thread I see people referencing using Picasa then using it to upload the photos to SM. When I try to install the Picasa button I get an error like can't open program or which program do you want to use to run this. Have tried it with Both FF 3.5-3.6 and Opera 10 messages a little different but same results. I contacted tech support and they told me it wasn't supported, which was okay until I can here. mwink.gif

    So how is this being done? Inquiring minds want to know

    Thanks
    Allen

    Hi Allen,
    Matt emailed us at the helpdesk that he figured out a way to add the Picasa button on his Picasa (running via Wine). Here's what he did:
    figured it out (by way of http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=898227):

    1. visit http://www.smugmug.com/help/picasa-smugmug-uploader
    2. copy link location for the "click here" link (looks like
    picasa://importbutton/?url=
    http://www.smugmug.com/photos/picasa/picasa2smugmug.pbz)
    3. paste into the location bar and remove everything before http (
    http://www.smugmug.com/photos/picasa/picasa2smugmug.pbz), slap [enter]
    4. save to disk
    5. Navigate to ~/.picasa or ~/.wine or ~/.winepicasa depending on how picasa
    was installed. Drill down to ."../drive_c/Program
    Files/Google/Picasa3/buttons" and put the .pbz file in there.
    6. (re)start Picasa.

    all done.

    -matt
    I don't know whether this might or might not work with the Linux version of Picasa. My guess is that you have to use the Windows version via Wine.

    I run the straight Linux version of Picasa and following the directions it worked like a champ, I am uploading now using it. Seems a little slower than the SM Java one but still coll and handy.

    The path to the buttons directory is /home/<userid>/.google/....<path below>

    Thanks!

    We are a step closer anyway, the button is there and you can highlight photos and click the Sm button and it ask for login info, Gallery info existing, new etc, then click upload and it all appears to be uploading the little picasa uploading deal shows on the right with a progress bar, when finished it says Sucess! 0 photos uploaded. I have always done this trying to create a new gallery in an existing category.

    Am I doing something wrong here?

    I can't seem to drag'n'drop into the Java uploader from Ubuntu linux, is this a known problem?

    I can't say for sure if that works or not, I pretty much just choose the directory & photos highlighting the ones that I want to upload and then use the upload button. If I have a bunch and don't want all of them I just make temp directory and upload from there,maybe a couple of extra steps but it all works that way.

    Others maybe able to give you a better answer.

    Fotoxx
    While looking for something else I ran across a program called Fotoxx and it caught my eye so I Googled it and discovered that it is photo editing software and can also so Raw files. I installed and to take a look at it after reading a couple of reviews. So far it shows promise. It will do hdr and panoramas

    Is anyone having issues with the KIPI uploader plugin for digiKam?

    For the past few weeks, uploads have been randomly failing with either incomplete file errors, or "Invalid user/nick" errors despite the username and password being correct (after all, photos upload sometimes...) It seems to happen more often with large files than small ones.

    I'm running kipi-plugins 1.2.0 with digiKam 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 10.04. I haven't been able to find any documentation on the SmugMug plugin so far yet at all.

    Only occasionally
    I was having that problem occasionally, as you figured out, it only happened to me when my files were larger than my Smugmug account allows, if I reduce the file size first, I don't have any upload problems. I'm not sure why it gives the random error message that doesn't seem to correlate with the actual problem.

    Other than that, the integration of the Smugmug uploader and Digikam is great, I love Digikam.

    If you would take the same approach to Flash, most of the problems would go away. :splat

    Now, for some reason, I can't create a gallery in Debian. Chrome and Iceweasel give the same problem; I can fill out the boxes on the add gallery screen, but clicking the "save" button does nothing.

    EDIT TO ADD: Apparently, after several tries, it did finally create the gallery, but never told me it was doing anything; it just eventually said "this nicename is already taken."

    Now, how about a warning on olde faithful that changing the "how many photos to add at once" dialog will clear all the existing files?

    Opera 10.7
    Anyone have problems uploading photos using Opera 10.7, had the same issue with 10.5 using the simple uploader it starts to load the java applet and then all I have is a white screen with no buttons. It works fine using Firefox. I use PCLinusOS 2010

    Updated:
    When starting the uploader I was getting a message about a certificate from an unknown system, according to the wording you would press No to continue ignoring the the warning. So this is what I have been doing and as I recall No is what I answered in Firefox. Just for grins I started it and when I got the message I answered Yes, then it worked fine.
