gthumb folder/catalog browser no longer works
Last modified: 2008-08-06 14:05:08 EDT
Description of problem:
gthumb-2.10.8-3.fc10.x86_64 can display and manipulate an individual image as
always. Whenever the folder or catalog views are brought up, though, it shows
only "no image."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "gthumb ." in a directory full of images
2. Wonder where your images went
Lots of messages like:
(gthumb:25889): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_icon_info_get_filename: assertion
`icon_info != NULL' failed
(gthumb:25889): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_icon_info_free: assertion `icon_info !=
(gthumb:25889): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT
Works here in current rawhide. Are you still seeing this ?
I just brought my system up to today's rawhide (modulo mono dependency issues)
and checked; yes, the problem still happens. I can view individual images in
gthumb, but no directories or catalogs. I still get lots of GTK and Glib
I am also seeing the same behaviour, however on i386.
$ rpm -q gthumb
I also do not get any of the gtk messages (I however remeber getting them
earlier when gthumb used to work.
hmm, what gtk versions do you have installed ?
Is a11y turned on ?
I just pulled up to current rawhide:
I had "assistive technologies" turned off - is that what you mean? I turned it
back on and restarted, but that didn't change anything.
Still can't reproduce.
If you can run it in gdb, put a break on g_logv and show me the stacktrace from
when the warnings happen, then I could make a wild guess as to what the problem
Created attachment 311612 [details]
g_logv backtraces from gdb
I got two basic traces, both of which are in the attachment.
I still can't reproduce, but I have tried to fix it anyway.
Please try 2.10.8-4.fc10
OK, tried 2.10.8-4.fc10, no joy. Lots of warnings, no folder or catalog view.
FWIW, I've just stumbled across another surprise which may or may not be
related. Running gthumb on a single .jpg file, I did some edits, then tried to
save the result. I get a little "do not enter" dialog box saying "Image type
not supported: application/octet-stream". Gthumb seems to be all thumbs for me
FYI: I decided to give this a random try after today's Rawhide update. It would appear that, with gthumb-2.10.9-1.fc10.x86_64, the problem has gone away. Actually, both problems (the image saving problem too) are gone. That makes me happier.
