Description Steve Brodie 2015-04-29 19:12:19 UTC
I have imported my photo library onto a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.10 all is ok but I find if I select events in the left hand column I can only see grey boxes and the key photo for the event is not shown in the box for each event. Not a disaster but it's a bit annoying and disappointing.

Probably similar to bug 752286

I am missing most but not all of the event key pictures.
The are just shown as grey squares.

The missing here is the consequence of restoring a backup which did not contain the .cache/shotwell directory. On deleting .cache/shotwell the thumbs128 are regenerated, but the thumbs360 not.

Fix missing event pictures

The large thumbnails are not re-generated when accessing the event only;
to work-around this, do not bail out but use the pixbuf and schedule the
thumbnail generation in background for the next start-up.
