I would like to display a fully opaque image (e.g. PNG RGB8) on the desktop in an image viewer - but such that I can set the window (showing the image) to be, say, 50% transparent (so I could see through and compare with other windows below). It would be even better if the viewer just shows a "panel" instead of a "window" (i.e. I'd prefer just the image shown, possibly with a border - instead of a full blown window with menubar, titlebar etc).
I'm aware that in Compiz, it should be possible to run a plugin, and have any window you want transparent - but I was hoping for a solution (viewer) that would not be Compiz-specific (and even more preferred, if it is neither Gnome nor KDE specific - but I'm not sure that is possible).
The viewer should have a button that if clicked, would then convert the file to a TIFF, again using dcraw. That's it, that's all there is to it. My initial impression is that I should be able to achieve this using Python and GTK widgets. Am I right? How can I find the commands and structures I will need to work with?
There's something very annoying about how Nautilus opens "image viewer" windows. They open, I can see them, but when I press the keyboard, it's still Nautilus which gets the commands. This is because Nautilus stays the active window!
Most annoyingly, when I want to have a quick look at an image, and then close it, Nautilus closes instead (Alt+F4).
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? How to solve it?
Iam looking for an Image viewer that lets me delete images through an 'delete' button/option in toolbox.. Most of the image viewers uses edit menu-->delete option,but iam looking for an direct link,clicking on which deletes the image currently open in image viewer ???
Whenever I want to look at an image on the command line I use Kview, but what I want to use is the standard one you get when you click on an image file in windows mode. For me it's called visionneur d'image cos I'm using linux at my university in France.
I want to know if there is any application from which I can view/convert the JBG Images to any other format. I have installed XnView and Image Magick. XnView does no support the JBG Images and Image Magick gives error while converting the image.
I've read about and taken brief looks at F-Spot, Gthumb, GQView, KphotoAlbum, and digiKam. Why is it so hard to find an app that edits IPTC? I think digiKam is supposed to, but 1) I was hoping not to have to run a KDE app on Gnome and 2) I can't even figure out how to use the darn thing ... it seems very unintuitive to me.
I miss Irfanview so much. (and no, I don't want to run WINE. I don't know why so many people are quick to suggest running Windows apps in WINE. If i wanted to run Windows apps, I'd run stinkin' Windows.)
It's one of those weeks for me when I feel like the more I actually try to USE Ubuntu for getting things done (as a long time Windows user), the more my hands are tied. I mean crap... MediaMonkey, Irfanview, ... ugh. Computers are for accomplishing tasks. Apps are for doing those tasks. OSes are for running those apps. I used to be a diehard OS/2 fan back in the day until I finally gave in to Windows. I still knew OS/2 was way superior, but what's the use in running a "superior" OS if you don't have the apps with features you need? I'm not trying to start a fight here and I hope I don't get slammed for my little venting here, but honestly...
I've tried what feels like at least a dozen different image viewers and I'm still hunting for one that handles viewing by date taken. The trick is that I'd like to just click the jpeg as they come off the camera and then browse through all the photos in the order taken... without having to load them into a photo management application, sort them in their, then start viewing from there. Too many extra steps for too many pictures when you're looking at a collection that is already organized (using the file system, i.e., nested directories) back to 2000. I need (ideally) a viewer where I click the jpeg, then go next next next through them in the order in which they were taken. Does anyone know if this sort of thing exists?
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 and have installed Geant4 according to this thread: [URL] When I make example A01 everything goes ok. Then I run the A01app, and still everything is ok. At next step I open graphics viewer typing /vis/open OGLIX or OGLSX and the viewer opens (blinks), but there isn't any window at all. Terminal output is
if there was an easy way to get a transparent terminal window. I am running Fedora Core 11 in Gnome desktop. I am sort of a newby and i am really getting into Linux but i want to know some of the cool features too.
I have a doubt about the Gnome default Image Viewer.It's because I edit my RAW images on RawTherapee, and then export them to jpg.When I open the exported pictures on the image viewer, it looks like has lots of noise.But when I open the same picture on Gimp or Iceweasel, the noises doen't appear.
So, the question is: which image viewer is wrong? Is Gimp and Iceweasel "fixing" the picture automatically, or Gnome Image Viewer is reading it wrongly and showing it with noise?URL...
I've noticed in Gnome pretty much all applications auto-rotate images when viewing, but leave the original image data intact. This may sound silly, but when I want to post pictures on, for instance, Facebook they upload as the picture was originally taken. So, if I took a picture with the camera flipped sideways it appears upright in Nautilus and the two image viewers I have installed, but when I upload the picture it appears to be flipped on its side. Does anyone know how to disable the auto-rotate when viewing feature?
The default image viewer in 10.10 (eog) has met its match, a ~500MB image of the moon. I just thought it was kind of funny, while browsing the software center for an image viewer that could handle it, I noticed the description of the one installed by default and thought it was kind of funny, so I snapped this screenshot and thought I'd share it with you guys. By the way I have 4 GB of RAM and can view the image just fine in GIMP, just thought this was kind of funny. Screenshot
Does anyone know how to set the background of a terminal to be an image, and not have it slightly transparent? I've set an image as my Terminal background, but now when I open a terminal over other applications I can see those applications through my Terminal background. Is there any way to stop this from happening?
In Ubuntu 10.04 using Document Viewer 2.30.0 I've noticed that every time I open the program or a PDF file I haven't opened before the window size seems to reset to default. Thumbnails sidebar re-enables, view goes back to "Fit Page Width" and the actual size of the window goes back to being very small (default).
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.
Right now I have a OpenSuSE 11.1 server running on a single hard drive. I want to install the HighPoint RocketRAID 1740 card and utilize RAID 10.I wanted to know if the following process would work ok:
1. Image the current hard drive using clonezilla and remove the drive.
2. Install the RAID card with 4 hard drives of the same make and model as the current drive
3. Create the logical volume
4. Restore the image to that volume
Since I am restoring the image to a RAID volume, is that completely transparent to the OS? Or do I need to do a clean install on that volume and reconfigure everything?
I have triedShotwellgThumbF-SpotNone of them has the possibility to define a shortcut which will move current picture to a defined folder.I want to get a collection of pictures to send to a friend. Before that I want to resize using imagemagick.Irfanview allows definition of locations for "Copy to" or "Move to" (F8 shows list of predefined locations, press 0-9 for copy. So effectively two key strokes). Does anyone know about an ubuntu image viewer that makes this possible with one key combination?
I am trying to write a small gtk+-2 program to display whatever image it is given and I was wondering if anyone out there has done something similar. I am not too familiar with writing programs for gtk and its been a while since I've fiddled with C. I went over the tutorial for gtk and it seams pretty easy to get a window to display, but I do not see anything that refers to loading an image or displaying it in the window. I am wondering if this can be done purely with gtk or will I need to use some type of image library like imlib2?
I'm fairly new to Debian/GNOME, and I'm running Squeeze and GNOME 2 and I have some questions. How exactly do I change the background image for the login window? I've looked up various suggestions but none of them seem to work - the appearances window does not ever seem to change the background image for the login screen. Also, whenever I log out or when I close the lid on my laptop and it suspends, I am unable to log back in - all I see is a black screen and my cursor, which I can move.
