| I've tried making a new version, this time without unsermake. Give it a
| That works.
| Now, for some initial comments:
| 1) It doesn't import Kimdaba 2.1 settings (e. g. thumbnail size,
| viewer size, etc.)
Thats a feature not a bug *ahem* These settings has move to the KDE
setting system, so the backend database is not cluttered with this
information. I didn't want to bother converting these, as it rather
simple for you the user to change these yourself.
It's a real pain for users to have to manually convert settings. The
fact that they're now in the KDE setting system is irrelevant -- this
is something kimdaba should be able to do itself.
| 2) There are a number of things in the viewer (e. g. if I click on an
| image) that are extremely slow (take on the order of 30 seconds on
| a 1.8 GHz processor with 1.5 GB RAM). These appear to be related.
| If I right click on the image and click Show Folder, or click on
| the beach umbrella, the UI pretty much freezes for quite a while.
| I haven't tried to investigate this yet.
| BTW, what does that beach umbrella icon do, anyway?
Jump to context. That is it opens the browser with the current
image centered. I agree that takes a long time, better do some
profiling on that some time. Feel free to help if you want to :-)
That wouldn't apply to right clicking on the image, would it?
| 3) The first time I tried to use the EXIF Info, the program crashed on
| me. Unfortunately, I don't have a stack trace, but I did see a
| message on my terminal about sqlite failing to create an "exif"
| table because it already exists. The next time it worked.
That error is shown when the table is created the first time, I
dont know why, and it seems to be harmless.
Whatever the case may be, the seg fault wasn't harmless.
Another thing: there isn't any "build all thumbnails" or "remove
thumbnails" command. Those were extremely useful.
