When I import a nef file (say, x.nef), shotwell automatically converts it to a jpg, naming it x_nef_shotwell.jpg. However, when I delete a picture in shotwell, it only removes the jpg-file and not the NEF. The next time I start shotwell, it reimports the NEF and generates another JPG. I think that problem can be solved easily with a script that checks whether a NEF has a corresponding JPG of the described form and if that isn't case, deletes it. I don't really know how to approach this, could you please help me?

Thanks a lot, Minamoto

This is a great idea but it would probably be best to file it with Yorba's bug tracker as a feature request. If it is accepted and the issue fixed, it helps more people. – Tom Brossman Aug 13 '12 at 19:40
There's already an open ticket on this issue. Rather than writing a script, it would be preferable if Shotwell didn't have this bug in the first place. – MrEricSir Aug 13 '12 at 20:19
