  1. So after reading through this, it sounds like «unprotect» is the most prudent option, just in case any other app/s (outside gallery & camera) want to use the db.
    Is that the option you would recommend power-users select?
    Also, like the Gallery plugins Igalia has created, is the native Camera app extendable through the use of plugins?

  2. For a power-user, yes, maybe unprotect is the best option. I would reccommend always «Protect», though, just as Nokia was doing this from the beginning.

    If I recall correctly, Camera was using a private library for controlling the GStreamer pipeline and CameraBin2, so I don’t know how extendable would it be.

    I recommend you to take a look to Aura, another of our apps:

    For the matter of the pictures, N9’s camera uses, as Gallery, the privative library gallerycore published in the PR1.0 SDK. Unfortunately, the plugins in PR1.2 and beyond are incompatible with that library from the SDK so you won’t be able to create new plug-ins for Gallery 🙁

    Cool I’ve set it to «unprotect» (very longtime maemo/meego user here), was just curious if there was anything you know off-the-top-of-your-head, as-to-why that’s a bad thing (apart from obvious security concerns etc).
    I noticed when you go back into it, it doesn’t give you any visual indication that it’s already been set, guess that wasn’t doable?

    «If I recall correctly, Camera was using a private library for controlling the GStreamer pipeline and CameraBin2, so I don’t know how extendable would it be.»

    Wow… that blows…. 🙁

    «Unfortunately, the plugins in PR1.2 and beyond are incompatible with that library from the SDK so you won’t be able to create new plug-ins for Gallery»

    So how was Igalia able to create it’s plugins then?

    Thanks for your time!

    Just not a priority to spend time in 😉

    You can probably guess how. Nokia was kind enough to provide us the means 🙂

  5. Thanks mate,

    How open might they be in the future to facilitating the means again do you think?
    (and for GStreamer pipeline & CameraBin2, not just Gallery)
    Will it be like «pulling teeth» again? 🙁

    Cheers!

    The MeeGo team was dismantled and Nokia is fully focused on Windows Phone and the Lumia products.

    There is no way I can see they will devote any hour to Harmattan but to finish dismantling the rest of the services related to it.

    Well, we dont know to what scale it was dismantled, I’ve spoken to quite a few former employees & none of them really know, they still think there’s some people there (mainly for maintenance), but exact size of the team (comparatively) is unknown.

    Cheers.
