Fedora :: GThumb Slideshow Will Not Stop On Current Image
Nov 29, 2010
I started using gThumb for viewing images and it's perfect except for one thing. Sometimes I have many pictures in a folder and I want to interrupt the slide show to browse the net or send an email. The problem is that after pressing F5, the slideshow reverts to the first picture in the set and I've got to find where I was up to, which can be very time consuming. Since gThumb is now at version 2.12.0 it's absolutely certain there's a setting for this but, try as I might, I can't find it.
When I am deleting pictures using gThumb image viewer it asks "The selected images will be moved to Trash, are you sure?" And if I press "yes" button - it moves message to ~/.Trash, can it be configured to move them into "real" trash? I have created symbolic link and it solved part of my problems, but files "restore" option is unavailable to files which were moved in to trash by this method.
I have a fedora 11 installation on my machine , with a customized partitioning of the 500GB sata HDD , I wanted to create a exact replica image on a USB stick , for future installations on other 500GB sata HDDs .. while only need to create a copy of the 5 GB (/boot + / ) while the remaining 400 GB + is a Data Logger partition which can be created by a script. I tried doing a rsync .. but have got stuck up with the bootable drive configs et all ..
When I plug in a USB camera I have gthumb-importer kicking in, I don't like it and would like to disable this.I have checked everything I could, google, man page, the gthumb package itself (pre/post script) gthumb schema (/etc/gconf/schemas/gthumb.schemas) but I could not figure out how to disable this thing. Did anybody figure this out ?
I am using Arch with Gnome 2.32 installed a couple weeks before Gnome 3 was out. And this means I use GTK 2 themes for GTK apps (if I'm not mistaken...). I have some awesome theme which I modified and my WM is IceWM, so it's just for GTK programs. And I don't wanna switch this theme to any other. So the question is: if I update Gnome 2 to Gnome 3, will my current GTK theme stop working? I won't update any piece of software untill the strong need, but I'm wondering if I'll be able to use my fave GTK 2 theme with newest Gnome.
I would like to know how I stop the current window I am on following me when I switch workspace.for example, I have this web browser open whilst I am typing this, I press Ctrl+. (my shortcut to take me to the workspace to the right), and instead of taking me to what was a nice empty workspace on the right, it sweeps this web browser to it as well.I can't find a way to configure this to my liking, can anyone help?
I installed gthumb on this laptop running Xubuntu 10.10 and it works great on my main admin account,but on my daughter's account, she cant print from gthumb or modify any pictures, printing as well as a bunch of other actions is greyed out.nting works good from the gimp. There's no print option in ristretto image viewer
I recently upgraded to slackware-current from Slackware 13 via slackroll, and have only encountered one problem. My file manager no longer thumbnails images, and icons (mostly PNG) aren't appearing no matter what GTK theme is set. Running from the command line produces no errors, and when brought up in something else (say feh /path/to/icon.png) it works perfectly. This is the only hitch I have encountered so far. The same thing happens with emoticons in Pidgin. Does anyone know of a fix?
Now that seems odd to me. Am I ok to proceed or will I be left without a desktop? Following advice in an earlier thread, I pointed my sources.list at testing to move to a rolling distro; having installed squeeze beta 2, I'm wondering if using testing is what is causing this?
For several reasons I still use Ubuntu 9.04 and for other reasons I dont like F-Spot for image-management (especially because it lacks the feature to manually sort your images -- or is there a way to do this?). gThumb lets me create manually sorted catalogs of images, so I use this piece of software. I would like to test the new (unstable) version -- 2.11 -- instead of 2.10, but it requires libexif-2.4 -- Jaunty has libexif 2.5 by default and I dont know a way to downgrade to 2.4. Is this possible somehow? I was trying both installing gThumb 2.11 from deb package and compiling it from source, both with the same result -- failure.
what happened to the Create Web Album functionality in gThumb 2.11 series? Is it no longer supported or am I missing an extension or something? Is there another software I can use that allwos me to do the same?
i wondered if anyone could assist me with a problem with gthumb?gthumb works fine on local files - it can thumbnail preview, then i double click the file to view iton network share, it does not work - it does the thumbnail preview ok but the viewer is blank (has image) when i double click - the snow leopard-esque thumbnail ribbon at the bottom still worksi have not issued a mount command - i have used the network drive mapping in the ubuntu menus (places > connect to server) then bookmarked the server. i note that gthumb does not see the bookmark. it sees the share as "sharename on server" and not the bookmark i made for it
I'm seeking a program to effectively create a slideshow/movie of pictures with the possibility of adding audio tracks to the slideshow.The reason I call this slideshow is that I will entirely use static pictures instead of video.Transition effects would be cool and subtitling, too, but not a must.
A good app that would allow me to select some pics (like of the Christchurch earthquake) that would make up a slideshow for a desktop background, instead of a static pic? I know Mac's have the ability to do this, and am curious as to what is available for Ubuntu.
I'm looking for a script to automatically open and play a PDF slideshow. The slideshow is saved in PDF format using powerpoint. Are there any good programs out there that I can use to play a pdf slideshow.
We tried to implement this while in its original PPT format but there are just too many issues. Here is the original script I wrote to open the PPT file using pptviewer
Then using cron, the scripts are run at the appropriate times. Basically I am just looking for a program that will play a PDF as a slideshow. I will use OpenOffice if I can but I would rather not because we have had problems with it. Plus im not sure how to run it from terminal.
I'm using 10.10. The FSpot and Shotwell programs that came with 10.10 don't seem to have any good controls for adjusting slide show display of photos. Could anyone recommend a good photo slide show display program that allows one to adjust pan, display time, smooth transitions, etc.
I was asked to make a slideshow of a series of JPEGs; I found the programme "imagination" that is available as an .rpm and I installed it with YaST;it worked well and I produced a couple of straightforward .vob files that could be started from a DVD player connected to a TV; (the intention);I would need to restart YaST to check; but I guess imagination is on packman It has a GU interface and worked well for me.
In F-Spot there's this nice function that shows a slideshow of all your photos as a screensaver. Since I've abandoned F-Spot in favor of Digikam URL...I was wondering if there is a way to do something similar in Digikam.
I just installed ubuntu 10.10 in a VM and went to change my desktop to something less boring and brown. I see in the desktop wallpaper program that there are certain photos that are in clusters (like you can click the photo and the next photo will come up and so forth). If I set my desktop to this cluster of sorts will it show me the photos sequentially or will it just stick to the first one. If not, is there a way to show this cluster sequentially in my background where it would change say, every minute or so?
I am looking for a linux-based solution that will let me record a PDF slideshow to a video file with a voiceover. Google searching mostly revealed PPT -> movie export and/or <other> -> PDF, but I am planning on creating my slideshows with LaTeX Beamer, and would then like to record a video of my slides with my speech in voiceover. Furthermore, I am planning on posting these online and would really like to be able to embed hyperlinks, if possible, into the videos as they reference each other and/or external references.
I've got a lot of pictures nearly about 1000. So I'm searching for a proper software to make dvd slideshow. First I've thought k3b will do the job just like nero but it has nothing like I've expected. Goggling showed me some like qdvdauthor, smile and manslide but they hang on my centrino laptop. My centrino laptop runs sidux with 1GB RAM. Is there any easy to use ,few clicks type of dvd slideshow creation software. I don't want the command style, atleast not for this job and I have no choice other than to switch to nero if there isn't any!
I think it is very annoying, that kde slideshow screensaver does not rotate images according to the jpeg exif information. I've found a bug report from 2005 for this topic Bug 103282 - no exif-rotation in slideshow) but as far as I see it still does not work. Any idea how can I set up kde to rotate the images?
