Description Christopher Beland 2009-01-18 15:58:50 EST
I sometimes used gqview to sort photos into subdirectories by dragging and dropping.  This is annoying in geeqie because after each move, there is a pop-up box entitled "Output of External Move command".  There should not be any pop-up unless the move failed or there is some sort of warning or question the user should be alerted to.

I forgot to mention the version number:

Disable verbose output for the External Editors commands in the preferences.
Comment 3 Christopher Beland 2009-01-19 03:59:22 EST
I'm afraid I don't see any setting on any of the tabs in Edit->Preference to change the verbosity of external commands.

I'm also not sure why anyone who is not debugging or developing (i.e. normal users) would want to get a pop-up when there is no error condition.  The application appears to have a debug level setting in the GUI.  Shouldn't verbosity be minimal at the default debugging level?

Click the "Help" button.

Please don't reopen this ticket. Geeqie is still alpha-level software, which is seeing lots of changes compared with GQview. It is offered in Fedora for evaluation purposes only. If you want application defaults to be changed, submit a request upstream.

I read the documentation, and changing "%vset -x;mv %p %d" to "set -x;mv %p %d" (removing the %v) for "External Move command" fixed this behavior.  Obviously, this is something which is completely beyond the everyday user, especially given it's not clear that there even *is* an option to change this as part of the preference system.

I'm not sure what you mean by "evaluation purposes only"; I thought the point of evaluating alpha software was to find problems and report them.  Since this is a clear usability bug, I will file a request upstream.
