@Gerry: There is no printing.

@Muggins:
- Help-File: I thought it has to be /usr/local/share/fotox but i will have a look at this later on and post it here.

- pdf: I noticed this too. I will have a look at it and if it's that easy to change, i will post a revised version later.

@Muggins

help file has to be in: /usr/local/share/doc/fotox/

icon in desktop-file: i'm using fluxbox in an 'frugal' way (no desktop, no icons). so i've simply forgotten this part.

pdf-support: which program will i have to use to change the code?

thanks
aragon

Gerry,

If you're after an image viewer that has printer functionality, from my little survey, your options are:

1) gimp...but not the version you downloaded that wasn't working.

2) mtpaint-v3.20...which can print via gqview or, with some tinkering, commandline parsing of the image to postscript.

3) gqview by itself

4) danpei does have a commandline printer script, but it needs installing convert from ImageMagick.

5) Iv has a printer option

6) Yoltia also has a printer option.

7) I've run out of other options...but watch this space...I see someone has forked gqview & has a sourceforge site for geeqie. I'm just downloading the alpha source to see how it's different from gqview.

Muggins- ttuuxxx's GIMP 2.4.5 pet prints nicely on Puppy 301 now that I've restored the machine-id file that had gone AWOL. No news about the GIMP 2.4.? that appears in the Dingo-a7 pet-get list.

GQview I know and like- prints beautifully in 214R.

New attempt: Fotox 0.37

With some help of Muggins i repackaged Fotox 0.37:

- Installs now on /usr/... as this is the path Muggins used for his packages
- Desktop-File now has an icon
- Help-Button will now also work with epdfview and gsview (if the docs-package is installed)
- New seperate Doc package

The Docs-package can be found at: http://www.tdk-net.de/puppy/fotox_docs-0.37.pet (1.1 MB)

For exif-support exiv2 is needed.

Hope this one's better.

Thanks for improvements to Muggins.

I tried fotox-0.37.pet and it has potential but it wouldn't let me make a 16x16 icon from a 48x48 icon, it stops at 20x20 for some strange reason, I tried it a couple of times.

hi ttuuxxx,

i don't think that this is (and will ever be) the right utility for your task.

i wanted to use it as a simple tool to remove red-eyes and to adjust brightness and colors of my digicam-pics.

i tested it a little and it seems to do this job.

as a former windows-user i'm trying to pick-up apps for tasks i've formerly done with windows-tools.

for pics this is (my opinion) not that easy. i've used picasa on windows but this is not the right app for my puppy.

so for now i'm using
- gtkam for transfering
- jhead for renaming based on exif-data
- gqview for viewing
- fotox for 'adjusting'

for all other kinds of image tasks other tools (like your gimp-package Wink) would be better. but f.e. gimp also is a big and difficult program, so i hope fotox will be sufficient for my tasks.

cheers
aragon

Your right aragon,
I still do 90% of all my images on Photoshop CS3 and Icon Lover for the PSD to XPM conversion, I would like a small tool that could compress and resize images with a drag and drop function when I'm building a Variant like I'm doing at the moment on 3.01 retro. Just to save some time, And not mtpaint because I find the quality isn't all that hot. Installing gimp to do those task just to remove it in the end could seriously corrupt some programs.

hi ttuuxxx,

i like drag'n'drop too, but wouldn't that be a task for image magick?

i think it is able to convert psd-images and it is able to resize.

with 2 little scripts (that i think you are able to write, i'm not Sad ) you might have it as a action in rox => wouldn't this be better than drag'n'drop Wink

Just a small observation. Citing "quality" as a reason to prefer GIMP over mtPaint demonstrates not one's sophistication, but one's ignorance. Because anything mtPaint is capable of doing, it does better than GIMP, and this is a hard technical fact.
There surely are many other reasons for disliking mtPaint - I hope picking one based in reality will be easy the next time. Wink

I Have done thousands of hours of graphic's and when it comes to plugins Gimp wins over mt paint, But Photoshop CS3 kills Gimp, plus everyone is entitled to their own personal opinion and that is mine.
