Description Sandro kensan 2017-10-21 21:37:14 CEST
See bug filled in KDE bug tracker:


I used Mageia Linux 5.1 and everything was OK for importing photos with Gwenview, and for displaying DCIM camera file with Dolphin.
I just updated my PC with Mageia 6: I can't no longer import my photos from the same camera, I get the warning in French "L'URL ne peut être listée  camera:/"

What can I do ?

I can import photos with Digikam, but I can't automatically name photo files with shooting date and time.

In Dolphin, the camera is not listed in the peripheral list.

I think I know what's the problem. This is not related to Gwenview, but the kioslave or rather Mageia's packaging of it: In order to allow camera:/ to work, you need to install the corresponding kioslave. When removing the kioslave on my side and setting the language to French, I got exactly your error.

Not sure how the package is called on Mageia, on openSUSE it is named "kio_kamera". Try installing this and open a bug report over at Mageia to set this package as a (soft or hard) dependency of Gwenview. This way this is not just solved for you, but every Mageia user.

I installed  kamera / Kamera ioslave   and everything seems OK now.

Thank you Henrik.

Confirm the Bug and confirm the installation of Kamera (Kamera ioslave) that resolve the bug.

But I remember that an little icon appear on the bottom of the left panel of Dolphin: right now it don't appear. Is it a bug?
