kuickshow does not display jpeg file
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
I attempted to display a file with kuickshow and that is all I got was a black
display. In addition, it first came up as a very small image in the upper left
corer of the screen and I had to maximize it or drag it to resize it.
The jpeg files displayed properly with gqview.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on a jpg file under kmail or
2. start kuickshow and select a file to be displayed
jpeg picture displayed.
I am not seeing this behavior with kuickshow-3.0.0-5. Things are working quite
well with respect to jpegs under that release. Have you tried the latest cut of
Just tested kuickshow-3.0.0-5 on 7.3 and the problem is still there. HOWEVER, I
have additional information. It operates the way I describe when I run it under
the gnome/sawmill desktop. Under the kde desktop, it works fine.
I currently run the gnome desktop but use kmail. When I clicked on the jpeg
file in some mail, I got the indicated behavior. When I tried kuickshow
manually, I did also. But that was all under gnome/sawmill. I suspect if I go
back to a 7.2.93 system and try under a kde desktop, it will work fine also.
It's fixed in current release 8.0
