Make sure permissions are set correctly
chmod 755 KomodoDrop

Make sure you have glibc
sudo apt-get install build-essential

Then run it
./KomodoDrop

That should working. It looks like there is a bug with spaces in filenames, but other than that, it should work.

I don't think I can access quick settings from the API, but I could store my own quick settings. Several new settings have been added, I'll try and support them soon.

How QUEUE up albums ?
Any way to queue up a bunch of albums to upload to a particular subacategory. Or do you have to upload one album at a time ?

Played with this today. NICE! I love the multi-threads. Now I can just queue up and forget it.

The only thing I noticed is that on videos, it seems to be loading the entire video before starting the upload. I've got 6 in queue right now that have been sitting for a while. The file server shows that files are being read, but slowly (700k/sec).

Komodo Drop Questions
I forget : does/can Komododrop upload my local folder structure ? Can I create categories in in my SmugMug Site, and subcategories in those categories ? Then have Komododrop upload a folder full of sub folders of photos up to my SmugMug account .... keeping my folder structure ?
Does Komodrop keep or lose my EXIF or even some IPTC ?
Does/can Komododrop bulk / batch resize ? If it resizes , does it keep or lose my EXIF or IPTC info?
How doe Komodo drop do with auto captioning or keywording when it comes to SmugMug ?
It would be great just to see it compared to Star Explorer which, at the moment, is great for me except that its' resizer loses all the exif /iptc info.

Thanks for any info,

Marty ( voicelit),

Not working on linux - requires GLIBC_2.4
And unfortunately, according to linux forum posts I've read, GLIBC_2.4 doesn't exist, the release went from 2.3 to 2.5. And I thought I had found heaven, being able to upload photos directly from my Asus eee PC running its derivative of Debian linux.

I've seen earlier similar posts, I have apt-get upgraded build-essential, and my eee PC says it's already up to date.

Any clues?

Pete

Hi figbug,

I'm looking for an app to quickly upload images (and videos) to SmugMug, and KomodoDrop seemed like it would be a good solution.

It installs just fine on my (Windows) system, but unfortunately it won't let me log in to my account: all I ever get is "Invalid login" (the same as with three other apps!). See this thread - DevBobo suggested the cause may be the password isn't properly URL-encoded when sent to the server. Could you have a look into this please? I have a "strong" password with a combination of letters, numbers and other characters, so DevBobo's idea sounds plausible to me.

I think I've found the problem, DevBobo is most likely correct. It is a problem with URL encoding. The characters "," and "$" need to be encoded if they appear in the parameter part of a url, but otherwise not. I'm guessing most programmers are never encoding them, hence your problem. You can try removing those two characters from your password and see if that fixes it. Otherwise, send me an email at figbug@gmail.com with the word "komodo" somewhere in the subject and I'll send you a beta build with the fix.

I agree that probably most programmers aren't URL-encoding the password, given that 5 out of 6 programs I tried have the problem. The API documentation really should mention that this is necessary.

There are more characters that can have a special meaning in a URL, unless encoded, such as "+" and "#". And, I always use a "strong" password (letters, upper- and lowercase, numbers, and other characters), which is perfectly fine with SmugMug. Devbobo did a test with the characters of my password, and URL-encoding solved the problem. He then directed me where to make what change in the SmugBrowser plugin, and that solved the problem for SmugBrowser. Then I went digging in the code for SmugManager, found where the login URL was built, applied the equivalent change there - and problem solved. I've also been digging in the code for Fotofox and found where to make the change (probably) but I've yet to test that, because it's inside a jar.

But, all of that is JavaScript, so anyone who can at least read that a bit can make such a patch themselves given the name of the function to apply. Not so with KomodoDrop. I'll send you an email, I'll be happy to betatest for you - but I'm convinced that URL-encoding the password is the solution - I'm guessing C# has a standard function for that, too? Simply (technically) put, any program that uses a URL with GET parameters to login with SmugMug must URL-encode the password because a password can contain characters that otherwise have a special meaning (or correspond to a space). If C# doesn't have a standard function for that (I've never used it so I'm not sure), RFC 2396bis (see sections 2.1 and 2.2) has all the details.

Email on the way!

Can't get it to work on AA1 Linpus Linux
My girlfriend has a new Acer Aspire One running Linpus Linux, and while I have used KomodoDrop on Windows XP (Great program by the way!!!) I can't seem to get the Linux version to work.

The program starts up, but when I click on the target, the menu pops up and then the program becomes unresponsive. I can only close the program by ending the process.

Any advice? Has anyone gotten KomodoDrop to run on the Linpus Acer Aspire One?

Wonderful Solution!!!!
I have been strugling with send to smugmug for a few days now and trying to get a sports job posted in time to actually make some sales. I fought with it until 2:00 A.M. and then did some google searching and came across this thread. I love it! It works beautifully and uploads much faster than I was able to with the other app. No hangups so far except that I noticed after adding another folder to the que it goes to a -% but that's really not a big deal for me. I am just happy to have a solution that allows me to get my bulk photos posted quicker. Great work! Thanks a bunch!!!!

Drag and drop not working?
I'm not able to drag and drop onto the target to upload. Is this working for anyone else?

I'm using Windows 7. This is an awesome app because I can max out all 16 threads and get really fast uploads. Thanks!

Drag and drop works fine for me on Win7 64bit.

A huge thank to the author. I've been struggling with 100-150KB/s uploads on a connection capable of nearly 4MB/s. Support's been no help and I actually more or less stopped using Smugmug for a year or so because putting images up was such a pain.

KomodoDrop has solved this issue for me beautifully. The only potential issue I see is that some might need more than 16 threads. For some reason each of the threads are twice as fast as a standard upload for me, so the 16 managed to do the trick in my case.

Well, another issue is that people have to manage to find the application to work around the limitations in the official solution. Which shouldn't be necessary.

Suggestions and etc..
GREAT SCRIPT!! Running on Windows XP. I think a brief readme file would help explain some of the features to beginners, especially setting the number of threads.

My percent complete is in the negative while uploading/creating multiple folders...maybe the percent should reflect the entire que. Also, froze/really slow on a video upload (size is <= 5 minutes). Again, great little program!

Not sure if anybody is still using my program, but I've finally updated it so it works properly with Smugmug again. The code is now on github. Scoll all the way down for the downloads:

Just tested on Win 7, 32 bit, just a few JPG files. Went perfectly on DSL.

I very much like the clean interface and sensible combination of features. Love the ability to choose the number of threads for upload.

Thanks so much for your work on making this happen.

I can't get KD working on Ubuntu 13.10.

I've downloaded the tarball, that appears to run fine until I drop a file to upload. I've put in my user details etc. but the category list is blank. If I click the down arrow, I get '(no choices)'.

If I upload an image and then check Status > Log, I see:

Info: Logged in session (some numbers)
Error: Invalid method

I've tried compiling from the source too, but it won't compile. I've done the premake and download juce, but when I make, I get a screenful of errors like this one:

virtual const Drawable* getDefaultDocumentFileImage() = 0;
^

The fact that there are so many errors makes me think this is an obvious problem, maybe a missing file or a wrong path.

Can anyone help? I've tried every uploader for Ubunutu suggested in the wiki and I can't get a single one to work. I've even tried the Windows uploaders under Wine, and still no joy.
