      I think that "Delelete" donĀ“t work in your case, but "Shift +
      Delete" works

   No, it doesn't.

So I think I know what's going on here.  If I select Display Images
Not On Disk while kimdaba is in the thumbnail view, Delete Selected is
active.  If it's in browser view, it isn't active (other items in the
Edit menu also aren't active).

showThumbNails() (and a few other related functions) looks like this:

void MainView::updateStates( bool thumbNailView )
    _cut->setEnabled( thumbNailView );
    _paste->setEnabled( thumbNailView );
    _selectAll->setEnabled( thumbNailView );
    _deleteSelected->setEnabled( thumbNailView );
    _limitToMarked->setEnabled( thumbNailView );

void MainView::reloadThumbNail()

void MainView::showThumbNails()
    _stack->raiseWidget( _thumbNailView );
    updateStates( true );

slotShowNotOnDisk() looks like this:

void MainView::slotShowNotOnDisk()
    _stack->raiseWidget( _thumbNailView );

I don't understand why slotShowNotOnDisk() doesn't simply call
showThumbNails() (and perhaps it should), but if it isn't going to do
that, it should call updateStates(true).  Jesper or Jean-Michel, you
can do the honors about the correct fix to this.
