google satellite map

Post by rmtk » Fri Jun 13, 2014 3:05 pm

It seems that the google satellite map stop working in XnviewMP these days.
I can see the street map but when turn to satellite map I can only see "sorry, we have no imagery here".

Yes, and only on Linux.
I just opened the Windows version in Virtual Machine and I could see the satellite map. I dont know why.
My OS is Linuxmint 17 64bit.

Of course, I don't know how it is implemented, but very probably the program has just a stub and a drawing surface which communicates with the Google Map's backend/API.

Are you sure that the communication isn't blocked by any firewall, security rules etc.?

Other program(s) access the service successfully? (eg. try Mint's Firefox - it opens the Maps?)

Yes. I can see the satellite maps on maps.google.com using firefox flawlessly, the same as the street map on XnView. I don't enable any firewall.
I tried to delete all settings but it didn't help. It's really strange... :|

I'm not a Linux user, but perhaps the following information is useful for troubleshooting:

Hello, FI:... I can confirm, same problem here under Ubuntu 10.4 LTS 64bits (satellite map - tab GPS).
error message under the map (in french): "Désolé. aucune image n'est disponible pour cette ZONE" quelque soit la zone concernée (for all zones : "Sorry. we have no imagery here".)

Please try to capture an HTML page (Create » Web capture...) that includes images in GIF, JPEG as well as PNG format.

XnviewMP can capture GIF and PNG images, but neither JPG nor google maps layer.

This is a screenshot of a Panoramio page:

and this is what captured by XnviewMP:

Thank you, rmtk. I think we've found the cause for the problem. Let's wait for Pierre's response.

Hi oops66 (-:

No, I believe it's a problem with dependencies.
XnViewMP relies on the WebKit module of the Qt framework for rendering HTML pages, and WebKit seems to depend on the IJG library for displaying JPEG images.

Hi Xntriq ...
Thank you Xntriq for the explanation ... I prefer ;-)

It's ok now here with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62
