Disciple,

thanks again as I found that the menu item wasn't being displayed with my .pet. So I've re-uploaded version 2.

With regards to the save on rotate, this is set as default, and controlled by the preference settings. But I've altered the source so that, now "Automatically save rotated images" isn't selected.

This is done by altering line 44, of source file pref.c, to:

Code:
pref.auto_save_rotated = FALSE;


then recompiling.

So what's the vote? Do you guys think that Gpicview should replace Fotox in Puppy4?

@plinej - Previous version worked on my 3.01 installation, but this latest doesn't. Here is the error:
Code:
bash-3.00# which gpicview
/usr/bin/gpicview
bash-3.00# gpicview
gpicview: symbol lookup error: gpicview: undefined symbol: g_once_init_enter_impl
bash-3.00#

I know you said it "may not work" on earlier Puppies, but I'm a masochist. Razz

WhoDo,

I've uploaded a version compiled with pup2.16, on previous page. No guarantees that will work with pup3.01 either...but it might. Can you give it a try, & if it doesn't work I, (or someone else?), will upload a 3x version.

I prefer gqview, it has nice options, is not overloaded, and you can quickly navigate using the file-list.
But gpicview reminds more on the XP image viewer, so people might feel more at home if they are eXPerienced Wink

I'll keep gqview in honour in Muppy Smile

At the outset I have to admit I don't use graphics viewers much, but another factor to be considered is exiv support. The developer of gpicview let me know, via an email, that he'd like to include exiv support, but he's got other priorities & projects at the moment.

Fotox does have exiv support, but requires that external exiv libraries be installed. I'm not sure, (maybe Mu is aware?), but I thought gqview has internal support of exiv.

Anyway, just another factor to be considered by Barry. (I hope he realises that he needs to add more calculators, (for AJ), and more winmodem support, (for Sage).

Thanks, muggins. Yes it works, but as you noted for the 2.xx series the tooltips and menu icon don't display. I can get the menu by right clicking in the application area, and that explains the icons, but for refugees it wouldn't be intuitive enough, especially the delete button which I frankly didn't recognise.

Thanks again.

Yes, MU, I agree with you that gqview is more usable for general image viewing, but I also agree that gpicview is much more like the XP image viewer and so likely to appeal more to refugees.

That said, I'm sticking with XnView, because of its file conversion and management capability, but I'm not suggesting it for Puppy by default. For that gpicview fills the bill.

Cheers

I agree.

Gqview or Gpicview, in that order.

WhoDo,

I've recompiled gpicview-0.1.9 on pup3, & the tooltips work now. One thing to check though, when you first run it, is whether, under "Preferences", rotated images are automatically saved. I thought I'd resolved this issue, by altering a file before compilation, but I'm not sure yet where/how gpicview is saving it's preferences to.

Two versions attached, one for pup2 & one for pup3.

Thanks, muggins. I installed it and it works fine. Tooltips are present but still no menu icon. I checked the preferences and rotated images are not automatically saved - the checkbox is empty. I'll have a test to see whether that is indeed the case.

Thanks again for the recompile. Much appreciated.

Regarding the menu icon, mine is showing under Menu->Graphic. I'm wondering whether the previous version installed, still has a .desktop file in /usr/share/applications, on your computer. Or whether this is a jwm/icewm factor?
