How to install XnView on sidux with KDE 4.3.1

Postby 300st » Sun Sep 27, 2009 9:51 am

Hello and many thanks to Pierre for this great program I am using it for several years.

Now i have installed a new machine and I'm not able to set up XnView.
My machine: CPU[-AMD Athlon 64 3500+ clocked at 2200.000 Mhz-] Kernel[-Linux 2.6.31-1.slh.1-sidux-amd64 x86_64-] Up[-38min-] Mem[-546.1/1003.4MB-]

I have tried XnViewMP-linux.tgz and XnView-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4.tgz, but the don't work. The errormessage is:

bash: /usr/local/bin/xnview: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
(This should mean File or directory not found)

But in /user/bin/local it is installed:

user@siduxbox:/usr/local/bin$ ls -l
insgesamt 5684
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root staff 1301544 27. Sep 10:59 nconvert
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root staff 1142956 27. Sep 10:59 nview
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root staff 3358016 27. Sep 10:59 xnview


Also the installer-script says "success":

root@siduxbox:/home/user/Desktop/XnView-1.70-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4# ./install
OS : Linux, version 2.6.31-1.slh.1-sidux-amd64
This script will install nview/nconvert/xnview in the /usr/local/bin directory

Done!



In the directory /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XnView is the file XnView.ad installed

root@siduxbox:/usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XnView# ls -l
insgesamt 12
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9229 27. Sep 10:59 XnView.ad

It has some parameters for XnView:
-----------------------------------------------------
!
!
! XnView.ad --- app-defaults file for XnView v1.25
!
!

XnView.version: 1.25

*fontList: -*-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
*background: #d9d9d9
*foreground: Black
... (and much more)
-------------------------------------------
The font "helvetica" is not installed on my system.

I have tried to launch XnView without the file: No success.
I have changed in the XnView.ad all helvetica to an existing font: No success.

Now i have no more idea.

Does anyone from you have a hint for me?

With best regards

Hi Pierre,

many thanks for your reply. Funny: i have downloaded and tried the new XnViewMP (0.20 I think). The bad news: It won't work on my machine. So, because I love the program, I have installed wine and the windows-version. This works perfect. Because I use the ALT + F2-key-combination very often, I typed in "xnview" and: Voila! it now works nativ in linux. In version 1.70. With my favorite little/tiny surface. With the transparency-error, but it works. I have seen some forum-entries with this effect and I will figure it out by myself how to solve it.

I think, I will deinstall everything to figure out, at which configuration it will work

I will write it in your forum, when I have checked everything.

Again many many thanks for this great program and your quick answer.

Greetings

Okay, I have figured out:

The absence of /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XnView/XnView.ad has no effects.
Deinstalling of XnView-Windows-version and deinstalling wine: Nativ-linux XnView v 1.70 works fine as well. Incredible: apt-get remove wine as root seems to be successful. But when I start windows-Programs, wine seems to be active. I can start the XnView.exe to install it. Hmm...there seems to be a problem under sidux, but this is not your problem.

I have downloaded /XnView-1.70-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4 again, chmod 744 as root and installed it. Success:
XnView 1.70 works fine in native linux code

At the moment my only exploration is: I have made an dist-upgrade and a dist-update and I have installed "imgseek". Maybe some qt-libraries weren't installed on my system.

By the way: The transpary-error don't occurs, when I switch off the desktopeffects or "composite". Nice to have these effects, but there are not neccessarily. To use XnView for a slideshow you need only some clicks to switch them off and after using your program switch them on again.

However, XnView works now fine for me and thanks again to you Piere.

I think, you can switch this thread to "solved".

With best regards

/me will now reboot and look if everythings well ;-)

Hi Pierre,

it seems, that it is a library-problem. I have tested it on the new machine (sidux, KDE 4.X) and on one of my old machines (sidux, KDE 3.5.x)
On the new machine it doesn't work. The error-messages and infos are here:

(I am talking about version beta 0.20 XnViewMP, downloaded today again [29.09.2009] to be sure to have the newest version)

There it works fine with the nativ code.





If you want, I can test it also on an old SuSe 10.2, a Mac (uhh, I haven't set it up. but I plan to install a mac os v9 [sherlock] on a powermac g4, but I think this mashine is to old to be of interest) and on an windows xp, sp3. but i think, you have enough feedback about win xp :-) )

With best regards
