Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

The Facebook-Export plugin ( hangs while "getting Albums" without any further respond. I first noticed this Problem under Karmic, but also tried out a fresh Lucid-Alpha2, with the same result. My friendslist is just ~50 People and I have only two Albums on this account.

The F-spot facebook plugin can't login to facebook AUTOMATICALLY.
I mean, I need to login to facebook using firefox (I try opera, but cannot, other browsers haven't test). Then, the plugin can upload the photo. If i do not login with firefox, I have the same problem, that it stop at "Session Established, Fetching Albums..."

Sorry about that, while i am upload the photo, F-spot crash, close automatically. Now, using the method I wrote before also can upload the photo. Still finding why it can upload 10 mins ago.

I can confirm the bug, i've got exactly the same problem. (same version:

Reproducable by
- open F-Spot
- activate plugin
- reopen f-spot (just to be sure ;) )
- select a picture
- export to -> Facebook
- confirm permission of F-Spot to upload pictures in Chrome
- reopen the export window
- export will hang at step "Session Established, Fetching Albums..."

Did not found any workaround yet. Also tried to be logged on at Facebook in Firefox, Chrome etc. but still the same problem. I've got around 6 albums in facebook, not that much i think.

I confirm this bug on version

Moreover I don't think the importance is low for this bug since the facebook export is unusable at this moment.

I have the same problem with version @ ubuntu 10.04 64 bit edition. Is there a workaround for this?

I'd also like to know if there is a workaround for this. I can confirm that it doesn't work on on Lucid 64 bit.
