It may be that the tmp holding time for the files you want to send is too short. I had what sounds like a similar problem with thunderbird, where having chosen the files in f-spot, and made the email message, the "send" would fail, saying the "files in the attachment tmp folder could not be retrieved" or something like that.
It was easily overrcome by adding a new integer key to the gconf-editor for apps->f-spot->export->email as shown below.
- Code: Select all
Use whatever timeout seems needed for you; my 1800 was completely arbitrary, and more than enough, half an hour.
The apps->f-spot->export->email will not exist until you have tried to send photos that way from f-spot, which I assume you have already tried, but by default the timeout key will not exist, though 30 secs is the default timeout not shown.[/img]
