Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 466942
gthumb fails to update display when underlying file is changed after a long time of doing so correctly.
Last modified: 2009-07-14 10:03:40 EDT
Description of problem:
When gthumb is started up displaying a single image (as in "gthumb -f /home/status/data/wc2.jpg"), it shows the image fine, and even detects that the image has changed on the filesystem and shows the new image. However, after a while the image is not updated on screen even though the underlying image continues to change on the filesystem.
I'm sorry to say I don't know if this happens after a period of wall clock time (although it seems like 1-2 days) or after a certain number of file updates.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Let gthumb display an image with the above command line and check back after a while to see if it continues to display the current image.
Steps to Reproduce:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
