So this is going to be one of those "is this even possible?" questions. I need to upgrade a piece of my KDE from 4.8.5 to 4.9. Specifically, I need to upgrade Gwenview from the 2.85 version in KDE 4.8.5 to 2.9 version in KDE 4.9. It seems trivial but it's actually a fairly big deal for me. I recently upgraded my Ubuntu to 12.04, and that upgraded my Gwenview to 2.8x.
Gwenview is the default image viewer for the KDE desktop. Out of the box it's good looking but nothing obviously exceptional. Except for two things: Phonon and plugins. That combination really does make Gwenview a pretty useful bit of kit. Let's see what it can do.Category: End usersLicense: GPL
Gwenview is not showing video thumbnails since I've upgraded (via fresh install) to F17. I found an old bug report about it, but it's supposed to be fixed in the current version that ships with F17. Is anyone else seeing (or is that not seeing ..lol..) this problem?
Recently my machine has started doing some strange things. If I try and load a Jpg or Png in Gwenview I get a strange error "QImageIOPlugins not found". The files are where they should be and if I use Dolphins preview function or Digikam Editor the picture show correctly.
