Happy new year everybody!
This used to work just fine until I updated my Android ownCloud client a few days ago.
Now I run the owncloud Android client v 2.9.3, connecting to an owncloud server version 10.0.10.4 on a hosted domain.
The client is working fine for normal file sync (I had to re-enter my password), but when I take a picture, I no longer see the status bar message that owncloud is uploading the image (and no image is indeed uploaded). I did re-enable “Picture uploads” in the client settings. I also set the “Picture upload path” to “/InstantUpload” (which was the old location). “Upload pictures via wifi only” is unchecked. I also set the “Camera folder” to /storage/sdcard1/DCIM/Camera, which is where my camera app stores any images (as verified by taking a picture and then looking at “Details” for the picture (it says: Path: /storage/sdcard1/DCIM/Camera/IMG_20190101_133995.jpg).
So for some reason, the client seems not to detect the new picture and never initiate the upload/sync. I tried rebooting, and also checked the app privileges - no improvement.
PS: Additional detail: When I view the picture and then select Share > ownCloud and select my account and the InstantUpload folder, everything works as expected.
