Description

Using the "import from camera" dialog, does not update when there are new files or files doesn't exist anymore.

Reproduce:
  1. Opening the dialog: "import from camera".
  2. Close it (import or cancel, doesn't matter)
  3. dismount the external storage media (for example CF-Card) ; take some new images with your camera or delete some images ; reconnect it to your pc
  4. Opening the dialog: "import from camera" again. The new images are not shown for import. Deleted are shown without thumbnail.

Same behavior when I'm using a card reader and changing the cf-cards.

Workaround: Restart darktable every time files on the external media changes.

Possible solutions:
  • Auto check if filesystem has changed, when opening the "import from camera" dialog
    or
  • button inside the "import from camera" dialog for reloading/update
