When I use any application to upload an image, the dialogue box opens for me to select my file, but I can't view my images as thumbnails. Instead it reverts to List view and displays the columns with the file name, last modified etc data. This is very frustrating when dealing with images. I'm a photographer and handle many hundreds of images.
I have ubuntu 9.04x64 edition.i have installed gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad,gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly,gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg so all video & audio files are played by totem.But why there is no thumbnail for flv files though in nautilus preview I have set always & file size upto 4GB.
I am using openSUSE 10.3.I play my video files using mplayer which I installed from tarball & necessary codecs.I can play my video files from command line nicely.Only one problem there are no thumbnail of any video file.Does anybody which software should I install so that thumbnail appear for video file in my nautilus file browser.The default player for GNOME desktop environment is totem which require internet connection to play file while my computer has no internet connection that is why I don't do anything with totem as it always says particular codec needed to play any audio or video file.
When using file preview mode in konqueror within a folder with movies the system automatically generates snapshots with an app called "kffmpegthumbnailer" (10% into the movies). Say I'd like to create my own thumbnails for files that do not get a good representation automatically, where do I put these thumbnails?Apparently Konqueror uses the folder "~/.thumbnails" as a cache storage. (if this is deleted, all thumbnail previews are regenerated). But when I try to supply my own thumbnail into this directory, it won't get used, instead a default one gets generated (even though the thumbnail type, size and name are identical).
How can I trick the cache functionality into using my own prepared samples instead of generating them. I would have thought there was a logical override, for example by supplying your own ".thumbnail" folder for files you'd like more control over, but this does not seem to be the case.
I was lurking about my hidden files and noticed the ".thumbnails" directory. I had been browsing the web for about an hour and had opened some image files from my drive.HOLY CRAP! I had over 2000 thumbnails in that directory! Every time an image is displayed, a thumbnail of it is created? Really? Seriously, I don't care what the reason behind this "feature" is, how do I stop it? It is simply unnecessary and a waste of disk space.
At some point after one of the many updates I do to my system, I seem to have lost the ability to preview myself on cam. Simply put, software like CamStream and Cheese just give me a black screen when I open it up. So, I cant see how I look on cam and what's in or out of the shot. If I tell Cheese or Camstream to capture a still, there is no problem. In fact, that is the only way I can determine what the camera is seeing of me and my background.
The only "solution" is to either have Cheese takke my pic and determine from there (as just mentioned), or go on a video chat room and have it use my camera to give me a real-time look at what the camera is aimed to. As someone who creates webcam videos for upload, and sometimes needs to move the camera while still live, this is not convenient so I hope to fix it.
Here are the command line outputs Im getting:
Code: ** (cheese:3704): WARNING **: could not generate thumbnail for /home/lixen69y2k/Webcam/2010-08-25-101226.ogv (video/ogg) ** (cheese:3704): WARNING **: Icon 'video-ogg' not present in theme Camstream:
Could not grab image (select timeout): Resource temporarily unavailable.Seems that GUVCview gives me the best articulation of what the problem is. I have both a built-in webcam for my laptop as well as a USB one. Both seem to have this problem so I know its a case of some part of my software being the trouble.
Does anybody else have this problem with restretto image viewer that it freezes after enabling the "show thumbnail bar" option? And after that point, it becomes unusable, can't be closed, only by killing, and can't start anymore, it shows only an empty gtk window and freezes again. Even if it is loaded without to show any picture.
After I manually installed multimedia codecs, like w32codecall, I got Linux to play movies and I also got thumbnail previews of them in Dolphin. However, I noticed that recently Dolphin doesn't display my thumbnails anymore. I don't quite recall whether the any video player could use my installed codecs, at least xine works. The only thing that could have caused that is actually the automatic system updates I received. I still have my multimedia codecs installed, but Dolphin doesn't show the movie previews anymore.
I have some videos I am looking to share and post to a couple of places. I am looking to preview to the potential downloaders the file quality, plus some statistical info. In Windows Media Players Classic, as shown in my example here, you have the length of the video, file size, file name... and in each frame preview you have a time stamp stating at what part of the video the from is from.is there a program in linux that can do this for me? That can generate the same (or maybe more) info automatically?
Can anyone help me with accomplishing the following: software writes to STDOUT --> filter --> PDF or PS "tiny text" thunbnail. Where "label" means something that fits on a biz card or smaller and remains readable. Here is an example,I want a "paper label" for data DVD media, or to include in the case with a carry-around USB drive.I can make content with ls -lh and similar utils with some post processing, but the resulting text file prints too large.A biz card has a similar form factor to a letter page only much smaller, so I need a filter of some sort.Process the text into postscript(ps) or PDF "tiny text" page thumbnail.Print this thumbnail label and store it with the media.I can also use the online page thumbnails as index into an archive or catalog.
Can some TEXT--TO--PS or TEXT--TO--PDF expert help work out how to accomplish this sort of thing?What do most people do about keeping an index or catalog of offline media (CD, DVD, USB drive) contents? (I know that "don't bother" is a popular option.)
I want to know how the thumbnail is created for pdf and text files in linux.As we all know in Ubuntu text files icon(thumbnail)is created dynamiclly depends on file content.It shows files first four lines as a icon.As File content changes for first four lines the icon also changes.Also same is for PDF file.It shows first page as a icon(thumbnail).
I have created an image out of 2 other images using the "montage" command. I want to then print it using "lpr". I view the output from montage in XV and it looks fine however when I try to print, it prints the bottom half of the first image then the second and then the bottom half again.
E.g., imagine this: Code: << end of top image << end of bottom image
The above is how it looks in xv however when printed, it looks like: Code: ------- ------- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ////////////////// ////////////////// ------- -------
I really can't understand it, I've tried opening and saving the image again but it still prints as above. I don't know if montage is outputting it incorrectly or something, however it looks right on the screen!
I created a VM disk image with kvm-img, but I forget what was the max size of that disk image when I created it. Currently, its size is 6.2G, I want to install some large packages in that VM, so I want to make sure the disk image can expand to an adequate size.
