Gwenview lost the ability to display some RAW file types [Solved]

Post by msdobrescu » Tue Feb 04, 2020 7:04

Hello, I've posted a bug here: https://bugs.sabayon.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5867

Several updates ago, Gwenview started to display my RAW files as black. It can't show them anymore.
Is there some dependency?

I can provide a RAW for testing, if requested.

This is a really breaker for me, as I was on a path to migrate from Adobe CC to FOSS tools.
This makes things hard to peek and feed files to various apps, like Hugin...

Why? How can you tell that?

As showed in my previous package link
USE flags
-test semantic-desktop split-usr amd64 -fits big-endian -raw -share kernel_linux -activities mpris elibc_glibc -debug kipi handbook X abi_x86_64 userland_GNU

or querying Entropy
equo s gwenvie -v | grep -A4 "USE flag"
╠ USE flag: -activities -debug -fits -raw
╠ -share -test X abi_x86_64 amd64
╠ big-endian elibc_glibc handbook
╠ kernel_linux kipi mpris semantic-desktop
╠ split-usr userland_GNU

Gwenview must be rebuild with USE="raw" use flag enabled.

I see, the minus sign means that. But why? Where could be found the explanation? It is a major feature. Is there some commit that explains it?

Minus sign disabled the features. I don't know why it was disabled (a misconfigured make.conf from upstream)
So , you can request to enable "RAW" use flag on your bug report.

Anyway you can read Gentoo Use flag handbook to understand USE flags concepts.

While you waiting this you can recompile Gwenviev by yourself

Code: Select all

USE="raw" emerge gwenview && equo rescue spmsync

If I understand right, here is the Gentoo ebuild: https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.g ... 8bf630aef8
Seems RAW is enabled, right? If so, Sabayon maintainers are the ones that disabled it, right?

Isn't it already there? But there is no feed-back at all. I don't think it is a small issue.

Where are the scripts that set these flags for Sabayon?
