Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

I tried to import some old photos into f-spot. At some point, it crashed. I suspect the photos got imported, the crash happening straight after.

Now f-spot does not start up, crashing with the following exception:

$ f-spot

I did have some photos imported into Photos/1.


I've moved these directories out of the way, but f-spot still does not launch. The bad data is still in the sqlite3 database - Photos.time contains photos

To fix this:

cd ~/.config/f-spot
cp photos.db photos.db.incaseiwannarecover
sqlite3 photos.db "delete from photos where time < 0;"

In my case, the two files causing the trouble had file creation dates in 2004-10-12 and were both corrupt and no longer recognizable as jpeg images.
