#880 confirmed bug

Upload to flickr / facebook from filebrowser creates "done" directory with empty files

Reported by: matthijs Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: Firmware 2.3
Component: fon-plugin-flickr Version: (Gari jr.)
Severity: minor
Cc: hommes.hans@… Hardware: 2.0n (FON2300)


When you select a file for upload to Flickr or Facebook from the filebrowser, the file is uploaded. However, a new folder called "done" is created at same place where the uploaded file resides. Inside, an empty file is created with s similar name as the uploaded file. The uploaded file itself is unchanged.

This is probably useful inside the "flickr" folder, to keep track of which files are uploaded already. However, for files manually queued for upload, this isn't really needed (and litters the disk with "done" directories).

This problem was reported by OldMan? and confirmed by me for the flickr uploader. I've confirmed this on both and

i used the flickr uploading and found that for some reason (i think it has to do with the done folder) a lot of images get uploaded more then once...

i had to manually remove about 200 photo's because something went wrong during uploading..

i suggest moving the pictures to the done folder directly after uploading.. from what i've tested now it's a kind of batch processing, if you place 5 files in the flickr folder, it uploads 5 and then makes the done files.. if there is an error during the upload of these 5 pictures, after a reboot the upload starts again, and the 5 pictures are uploaded again..

with 5 pictures this is not such a big problem, but with 1500 pictures from my vacation (which just ended) this i quite an issue.
