I’m posting here, rather than in Bugs, as I’m looking for information. I’ve looked in the Sailfish OS Cheat Sheet.
I just upgraded to 22.214.171.124 (Kvarken) and needed to free some space on the phone as pre-upgrade backups were failing due to lack of internal storage space (the backup device was a large, empty microSD card). So, I deleted a couple of years worth of photos by doing a simple rm YYYY* at the command line for the relevant years.
After the upgrade to 126.96.36.199 (which hung at the end of the Sailfish progress bar and needed a forced reboot (Volume Up+Power), I’ve discovered a number of avatar images in the People app are missing.
So, what I’d like to know is where the People App stores the paths to the avatar images so I can read them and locate the files in my separate backup of the photos and restore them. It’s a bit of a pain to go through all my contacts one by one looking for missing avatars, then search for the corresponding image, when the filename will be stored somewhere, making the process a great deal more efficient.
I’d also like to understand how the Gallery app works and where/how it looks for images to display. Being able to organise the images in folders would be good, even if it has to be done outside of the app itself.
It would be good if avatar images used in the People app were stored separately, so they don’t vanish when the original is removed.
