SL 4r1 - Konqueror Image View replaced by Photobook [Solved]

Postby Richlion » Mon Feb 02, 2009 0:36

Hello,

I have now installed Sabayon 4r1, Konqueror now seems to have Photobook mode (again, like in the past), in Sabayon 3.5.1 it was Image view - it was perfect. Was KDE - Konqueror changed? Should I ask in the KDE community?

This Photobook used to cause a lot of problems and this is happening again. When I have a photo opened, I cannot navigate through my folders in the Navigation Panel, it simply tries to open a folder and never finishes. I have to close Konqueror and reopen.
Also this Image view was much better than Photobook, because I would have the Navigation Panel on the left, then the file details in the middle and I only had to click once to choose another file to see it displayed on the right. The Photobook displays the detail icons on the right hand side, so it's like not very natural, apart from that I have to double-click. Also Image view had a very convenient zoom option "Fit to hight", now I only have percentages.
This is very uncomfortable.

This is really annoying, old good functionality is replaced by something that doesn't work and it is also not very convenient. Unless there is a way to change or configure it?
In the view menu I do not see the previous View -> Image view mode, it's also not in the Help. Anyone knows, if it was replaced?

I know this is not Sabayon's team fault, I may have to go to KDE and ask about this.

Help would be appreciated,
Richard

use "open with" then choose other, pick your program and make sure that the tickbox for using that program as default is selected

Thanks, but I asked the KDE team and the Image View should not be removed.
http://forum.kde.org/konqueror-10-photo ... 29970.html

Is there anyway this can be fixed after installing Sabayon 4r1?
I am now again using Sabayon 3.5.1, not 4r1 just because I like that function that somehow dissapeared in 4r1.

Thanks,
Regards,
Richard

Hi All,

any news on the missing Image View in Konqueror? Actually this is one thing that is stopping me from using SL 4.1.

Regards,
Richard

Richard,

In Konqueror under KDE 3.5.10, Image View will only appear in the View > View Mode menu if Gwenview is installed. So, if you're using SL 4.0-r1, which does not have Gwenview installed, there is no Image View option in the View > View Mode menu. The solution is to install it:

Code: Select all
emerge -1v =media-gfx/gwenview-1.4.2-r2


and then "Image View" will appear in the View Mode menu.

If you want Image View instead of Photobook in Konqueror's Main Toolbar, left-click and hold your finger down on the Photobook icon in the toolbar and you will see Image View as one of the options. Select it.

Many Thanks Fitzcarraldo,
now I understand, you gave me a very clear explanation.
