App background colors

Post by Rebellious »

Background colors in treeview, thumbnails & settings windows do not respect user color settings (Preview window does). It's bright-white, hurts the eyes.

Numpad Zoom * / stopped working.

Love the support for Canon G7 X RAW format, loads fast too :D

0.76.1 Linux Mint MATE 64

You need to either change themes or tinker with the style_sheets in the program folder. Some members have posted modified files in the fourms.
Thumbnail Colors can be changed under settings, but not the panel background itself.

Thank you. It was simpler to go back to previous version 0.72, I still had a download copy in my laptop.

Hi Pierre, I switched back to 0.72 so I can't do screenshot of 0.76

Window backgrounds were bright white, except thumbnails where I had set my own. Fonts were different sizes too, menu, forms, etc., mostly too small. Some other settings went to default.

Now I have "check for updates" = never because otherwise it prompts every time on startup.

It looked like a lot of code changes & streamlining. I'm amazed at how you can manage so many platform versions simultaneously. It would make my brain explode. :)

That makes sense, I'm on Qt4. If I installed the Qt5 SDK your API would probably work as designed.

I have Mint 13 LTS and let the Mint maintainers push whatever packages they've tested, otherwise I may break something. I have a Mint 17 as well, I'm gonna try 0.76 and let you know how it works.

Your new keyboard event handler is missing numlock+/ and numlock+* ?

Same problem in Mint 17. App is using its own controls/widgets and ignoring theme settings.

You should be able to at least emulate font sizes, background colors and mouse/cursor size by fetching user-profile settings.

I'd be happy to email you a screenshot.

The previous screen shot above was 0.76.1 in Mint 17.x + Qt5.

This is 0.72 x64 in Mint 13 with Qt4. It uses correct system/profile controls, scrollbars, titlebars, same size fonts, window background colors, etc., except it uses a smaller size cursor. numlock+/ and * works, though I've always wanted to add Spacebar for FileNext in addition to PgDown, is that possible?
