Photo shooting is not working. I have only 69% of memory used according to the APP lighthouse. I believe it is not the space problem. And this incident has occur several times this month. The first time when this happened, I deleted some songs and released some space, after a few time restart, it worked somehow, but not this time.

And for theme changing, it just does not work. These two are the most basic functions, it should be fixed immediately.

The last question is when will I get the next sailfish OS update, it has been quite a long time since last update.

if you are usung takhlampi.. resetting is the only option ... if u are using uitukka then try refreshing the app registry

@Jiang - please add to your tags, which version of Sailfish you are using and why is this question converted to wiki?

I'm running Uitukka and did have this problem, but I had been playing with other files which may have caused the error. I ended up resetting after trying to re-install camera and camera settings apps without success.

As for a possible 'fix' for the Ambience function, open terminal and type this in;

systemctl --user restart ambienced.service

I've changed shouting to shooting as I don't think you mean that the camera should be loud mouthed ;)

@Markkyboy The version information of Sailfish has been added to the tag. And sadly the terminal code you provide is not working. Thanks anyway.

@Jiang - sounds like you'd be better off resetting the device, as suggested by Ghost in the first reply. I personally would also reset. I know many don't like the idea of resetting, but sometimes it's the quicker option.

It is too much complicated, the information you provide is actually a real article, it is not a post any more. I really want the next update will fix this most basic function error instead of asking every user to be a geek to debug stuff. Thanks anyway.

@Jiang Just scroll down to the btrfs balancing and run the command in Terminal. :)
