I use digiKam on Kubuntu 12.10 to organise my photos and really like being able to upload to Picasaweb using kipiplugins. Unfortunately after having set up Google two-factor authentication I now need to create an application specific password each time I want to upload from digiKam.
This behaviour is a bug which seems to have been fixed upstream according to https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=292223 in digiKam 2.7.0.
I am using digiKam 2.8.0 on KDE Development Platform 4.9.5, with libkipi 1.6.0 (according to digiKam). Is there a reason why this bug-fix seems not to have been applied to my version of digiKam? I have been upgrading rather than reinstalling, so is there some config file or token file that needs to be deleted to allow the correct behaviour?
Alternatively is there a ppa version of digiKam with this functionality available?
