Hi,

This page was created by gthumb running on my Z : http://users.telenet.be/zaurususer/screens2/

The features of gthumb : http://gthumb.sourceforge.net/features.html

I hope to get it on the "contrib" site this week.

Have fun,
Chero.

Added to my feed on the contrib pages : http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/Chero/ thanks to pgas.

libexif is not in the main feed, but can be found in this post.

Gphoto support hasn't been added yet, but is likely to follow quite soon.

More info on gthumb : see link in the first post.

Have fun,
Chero.

Gphoto2 support added, connected camera, clicked on "import photo's" and this is what i have :

Attached File  gthumb04.jpg ( 169.66K ) Number of downloads: 260


No fuss, no settings, it just works.

I haven't updated it in the feed yet, I'll let you know when I did it.

Have fun,
Chero.

Hi,

I've added an entry in the announcement thread about gthumb, but please don't mess that thread up and post comments over here.

Please report success/failure. I had to recompile libgphoto2 to be able to compile gthumb. Could someone using the libs in the gphoto-thread please test gthumb ?
If it doesnt work, there's a lib available on the same page you find gthumb, but the package includes everything (also the dev-part). If necessary, I'll make two packages of libgphoto (normal and dev), but I don't want to upload the same lib twice.

Have fun,
Chero.

I just intalled gthumb. Two things.

1. It had no icon in the menu.

2. It complained about missing libexif.so.12 when I tried to run it from the command line.

I'll go hunt down the missing lib and try again, but I thought you might like to know.

EDIT:

Got libexif from thread linked to above. Now:

3. It wants libgphoto2

Sorry if you already knew all of this. I may be misunderstanding the purpose of a feed. I thought with a feed, all of the dependencies would be included in the feed and auto-installed when the package was installed.

EDIT2: Ok, I got it to run, but it doesn't show any pictures. If I navigate to a directory with JPG files in it, I should be able to see the pictures, right?

It should have complained about libexif during install.
I didn't include it in "my" feed, cause it had already been posted somewhere else.
I could add it to the feed though ...

About libgphoto2 : I thought it could run without it (it was an optional feature), that's why I asked to report success/failure. Apparently it doesn't, so I'll change the dependencies.
Which libgphoto did you install ?

About jpegs : yes, it should.

Thanks for going through this hell,
Chero.

It did not complain about missing any dependencies when I installed gthumb. So even if libexif was in the feed, it doesn't seem like it would have grabbed it, although having it in the feed would have made it easier for me to get it onto my Z.

I used libgphoto2 from the same feed as gthumb. It complained during the install that it wanted libusb but couldn't find it, however it didn't seem to need it at run time (my 760 has no USB, so I didn't see the point).

It also complained at run time about missing some "high color" icons. It ran anyway, but fixed the error by intalling the hicolor package from the same feed.

So, in conclusion:

1. libexif needs to be added to the feed.
2. libexif needs to be added to the dependencies for gthumb
3. libgphoto2 needs to be added to the dependencies for gthumb
EDIT: 3.1. libusb MAY need to be removed from the dependency list for libgphoto2
4. hicolor MAY needs to be added to the dependencies for gthumb

5. However, all that just gets the program to run without complaining, it still doesn't actually show any pictures. I noticed the end of this poster http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...ndpost&p=120497 had the same issue though. Am I missing anything else? Did I use the wrong libgphoto2 package?

Thanks. I don't mind testing if it makes it better in the future. smile.gif If you make any changes, let me know, and I'll uninstall all of this stuff and try again from scratch to see if it goes any better.

Thanks for the feed-back,
I'll try to look into it this evening when I get home.

BTW: Do you have libjpeg installed ?

In the mean time,
Have fun,
Chero.

Probably not. I'll have to look. Maybe another good one for the dependencies?

Let me know when you've made changes and I'll test again. I've already removed all of the package I installed for gthumb.

I'm pretty certain that that's not the problem, I have that library installed and pictures don't show. Also following your remark in this post I uninstalled gthumb from /mnt/hd and installed into /. Same problem sad.gif. Weird thing is I'm running gthumb from command line and if there were any major errors I would've expected to see some error messages, but the only thing I see is the usual error about the missing icon (happens on a lot of gtk/gnome programs).

Next step, I'll have to try uninstalling gphoto2 & friends and start again.

1. It had no icon in the menu.

I assume you're using the default DE. The relevant files are:

/usr/local/share/pixmaps/gthumb.png
/usr/local/share/applications/gthumb.desktop

My observations are:

1) the matchbox panel (ie the thing that contains the menu) does not look in /usr/local, thus .desktop files and icons needs to be placed in /usr/share/applications & /usr/share/pixmaps respectively.

2) the matchbox desktop for some reason does look in /usr/local/share/applications for the desktop files and sees gthumb, but then it does not look in /usr/local/share/pixmaps for the icons, hence on the desktop you see an entry for gthumb but it displays a generic icon.

I installed the "hicolor" package from the feed where I got gthumb (http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/Chero/) and it fixed that error.

Yes, I ran it from the command line too, and managed to get it to give me NO errors, but also no pictures. smile.gif

Let us know if you get anywyere. My re-install didn't help any. I'm waiting now for Chero to at least make changes to the feed, to see if it will install with dependencies, rather than my having to hunt down ipk's left and right with my stylus.

The search for the dependencies gave me this :
glib2
gtk2
libxml2
libgnome
libgnomeui
libgnomecanvas
libglade
libgnomeprint
libgnomeprintui
libbonobo
libbonoboui
libexif
libgphoto
libtiff
libjpeg
(hicolor)

The last one isn't really a lib or app, it just contains some icons.

Is someone willing to test this, or do you wait until I fixed the deps in the ipk ? (maybe this evening, I was too busy yesterday)

Most of these are in the main feed, some are in http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/Chero/ and the missing one (libexif) is in the gphoto thread.

@ desertrat : do you have a ".thumbnails" in your home-dir ? If not, does it help if you create it ?

Chero.

I already have that directory.

I uninstalled everything and reinstalled, but still no pics sad.gif

Right now I recompiling the whole kaboodle - gphoto2 & friends and possibly gthumb. If that still doesn't work then I'm going to try gtkam smile.gif
