Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 397121
email attachment thumbnails not rebuilt
Last modified: 2008-11-29 01:14:12 EST
Description of problem:
When attaching a JPG file with a corrupted or incorrect EXIF thumbnail,
evolution does not create a new thumbnail but uses the corrupted one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compose a new email and attach this image (hail1small.jpg) to it.
2.Although nautilus displays the original image thumbnail correctly, it appears
corrupted in the evolution mail window.
Created attachment 267731 [details]
Created attachment 267741 [details]
Probably because of using deprecated gnome_icon_list, because data passed to
that function are same (with compare to preview of message with same attachment
(saved as draft), where the icon, even a bit smaller, looks very good). I
checked that the underlying pixbuf has always 48x37 pixels, so it is probably
because of the list or something related with it.
I'm beginning to work on migrating attachment thumbnails from GnomeIconList to
GtkIconView. I'll be sure to include this in my test cases.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Retested on Fedora 10, and neither Nautilus nor Evolution show a thumbnail of the image in comment #1. Closing as CANTFIX since there doesn't seem to be any action to take on this. Reopen if you encounter the problem again.
