Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 829957
Recorded pictures and videos do not appear in area at bottom of Cheese window
Last modified: 2012-06-27 23:43:51 EDT
Description of problem:
The default layout of the Cheese window includes an area at the bottom which is supposed to display pictures and videos that have previously been recorded with Cheese. These pictures and videos do not appear there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Cheese
2. Take a picture or record a video
Nothing appears in the area at the bottom of the Cheese window.
A small picture should appear in the area at the bottom of the Cheese window which corresponds to the picture or video recording that was just made.
If you switch Cheese into Wide Mode, then you can see a small picture for previously taken pictures and/or video recordings. (In Wide Mode, these are located on the right side of the Cheese window.) In order to switch to Wide Mode, select the Wide Mode option in the Cheese menu.
After spending too much time on debugging this, I've found out that this is a recent gtk3 regression, for which I've now filed an upstream bug including all the details here:
Changing component to gtk3.
Note as a workaround users can downgrade to gtk3-3.4.1 for now, or switch to widescreen mode.
So upstream discussion has resulted in this needing a fix in both cheese, and in gtk3, changing this bug
back to cheese and filing a new bug for tracking the gtk3 fix.
For details see: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=677809
A cheese for fix is on its way, note that with many thumbnails this still won't work, and with a few thumbnails it will show only part of the thumbnails. This is a gtk3 issue which is tracked in bug 830749.
cheese-3.4.2-3.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.

When using cheese-3.4.2-3.fc17.x86_64, I am seeing only the left part of the thumbnail pictures in the bottom area of the Cheese window.

Right, as mentioned in comment #4 this is "expected", as this is caused by a gtk3 bug which is not fixed yet, see bug 830749.
cheese-3.4.2-3.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
