Re: Thumbnails do not match ?

After an upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04LTS, the same thing happened again, program crash included ... some "referential integrity breakage".
Deletion of thumbnail database and program restart, re-reading all images did the trick. I wonder: is it possible to detect this beforehand?

Re: Thumbnails do not match ?

I guess the answer lies hidden in "multi-user" issues, and the data base, though initiated correctly, was prone to corruption from the very beginning. I can't for sure rule out that, after a fresh installation of XnViewMP, it was first invoked from a console where superuser rights were already grant...

Re: Thumbnails do not match ?

I also suspected that "a multi-user environment" affected the database somehow. A tricky combination of different access rights, mingled program and/or file versions, outdated files ... same as ever. In fact, the data - quite a lot of it - is located here on a single file server which runs a raid5 a...

Now I did ... and enabled caching again. Yet everything is fine.
I wonder what possibly went wrong and will keep an eye on it.

Obviously, yes. Exited XnViewMP, then tried to invoke it again. Dang!
It immediately crashed without notice. On a second attempt, everything is fine again.
I had the thumbnail cache disabled in the first place.

Re: Thumbnails do not match ?

Thanks for the feedback, really appreciated but... I meant the following: 1. Go to menu View 2. Click on Rebuild Thumbnails Does it fix the problem? Nope. That was of course the first thing I tried. Now you suggested that I cleared the database es well /setup/database/clear all). Still thumbnail mi...

Re: Thumbnails do not match ?

Hope I got that right ... by "search" you mean the image browser view, right? I thought that is what thumbnails are meant for... or what else? Viewed in "Layout 1" it looks like this: http://www.walther-mathieu.de/PICS/what_search.jpg A house made mainly of garages - while the thumbnail shows a car ...

Re: Thumbnails do not match ?

Do you mean that a file with the name foo.jpg is shown in Windows' viewer with one image and in XnView's thumbnail with another one? Exactly! To be more precise again: My post is about XnViewMP 0.61, and it is Ubuntu or MacOS X I'm running it on here, _not_ Windows. I didn't try the MacOS variant l...

Thumbnails do not match ?

I didn't manage to find an issue like mine here, so: What am I missing if I get a complete mismatch of thumbnails? I tried to re-read directories, fiddled with setup... a forced rebuild of the thumbnail database does not come to an end, or, to be more precise, not within two days. Since there's some...

MacOSX Tiger on G4 & XnView or -MP?

If such a thing exists, can anyone please point me to a version of xnview that runs on a G4 Mac mini with Leopard (10.5.8) installed ? I vaguely remember that there was a working xnview on my iMac G3 running Tiger (10.4) years ago ... but I'm not quite sure. Being without xnview (and stuck to iPhoto...

This thread seems a little outdated, perhaps it's worth to re-animate... Astonishingly there appears to be no ready-to-go Debian package of XnView , which is sad, given the fact that even the XnView logo has the Debian spiral in it. I like XnView very much and use it frequently on IRIX 6.5.22. But s...
