I can't anymore more see my latest pictures in Gallery Photos(Galleria/Kuvat). There is only couple of my old pictures. I can find all of my pictures at Nemo/Pictures/Camera -folder. Where to find what path is used to show photos in Gallery/Pictures... I think it's some how wrong.

You can try making tracker re-index the pictures by tracker-control -es

Check this Q/A in TJC:

Where and how should I enter 'tracker-control -es' ? It looks command line feed... I have ShellEx app installed, should I use that?

Step-by-step instructions for dummies, thanks =)

@MikaN Yes, it is CLI command. You need developer mode enabled and installed Terminal app.

@zlatko I think I managed to get developer mode enabled, and I tried to install Terminal UI from Warehouse (there reads NOT COMPATIBLE WITH YET, and I have 1.0.8) but something goes wrong, install doesn't complete (or so I think...). Where can I download Terminal for 1.0.8.x ?

Or maybe it's better to wait for next Sailfish upgrade and hope Gallery works then...

Terminal application is auto-installed when you enable developer mode. Juts browse you app launcher. Check this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDIAAkTQf_U

Ok, just updated my CameraPlus and now everything works just fine. Thanks =)

Hi, same thing here, my newly taken pics do not show on Gallery. But after rebooting the device those new pics are shown too, so maybe this bug has something to do with refressing the gallery index... New pics goes to same directory where the old ones are.

Tracker-control -es solved that problem for me too. I hope it did it permanently and not just for now. Thanks
