That's... odd. Can you give me a description of exactly what happened? "Digikam move operation" doesn't exactly sum it up. It will be very helpful to know exactly what steps led up to triggering this, and why Nautilus is the only icon not affected. Prabably cuz' it's fabulous like that. :-)

Thanks for reporting + nice screenshot!

I tried again now. The transparent icons starts already when I start dragging images in Digikam. The folder/Nautilus icon is probably active because the images can be dragged here (I tried moving there and the window opened).

The bug is that the icons are still transparent while the move operation is in progress (when I chose a folder inside Digikam and selected "move") and after it has finished. I am not sure if this is a misbehavior in Digikam so I added as affecting that project as well.

Okay, thank you, I knew this couldn't be just a freak thing.
So Nautilus is still transparent because the photos can be moved there.
I see. So, it looks like Digikam just doesn't finish the Unity-where-to-move-stuffs feature after it's done.

I have Digikam, how can I replicate this?

Thnak you

Just move some photos inside Digikam running unity (add them or add a collection of existing photos, make a new album/folder to move them to). I also think it is just not finishing the move process. When I tried again now the icons were reset when exiting Digikam.

I reported a crash at exit of Digikam after the move operation that might be related:


I guess it might be busy updating the photo database (I notice it consumes a lot of CPU after the move operation).
