    Re: GTK File Selector Hate.

    The Nautilus list mode uses thumbnails too.

    I also seriously doubt that users will be frequently go browsing through their hidden thumbnails directory. It would be trivial to implement some "if...

    Which comes up in 5-10 seconds (on Feisty). Hardly the 5-30 minutes you were talking about earlier.

    The icons in view load first while the rest load in the background.

    Re: GTK File Selector Hate.

    Exactly. Under Nautilus preferences there is an option to set the maximum file size to thumbnail, which I believe is about 5MB or so is the default.

    Re: GTK File Selector Hate.

    Ah, thanks.

    You right click on the file area background and select "Large Icons" and then "Thumbnail Previews".

    Re: GTK File Selector Hate.

    I'd assume that either clicking the paper-and-pen or crtl+L would bring up the text entry mode as per Nautilus.




    Well there should be a "View as List" option right where the "View as Icons"...

    Re: GTK File Selector Hate.

    Without clicking expanding the simple file view pictured in the first image it is impossible to save anywhere other then a bookmarked folder or the previously used.

    Re: GTK File Selector Hate.

    I wasn't talking about that at all. I was referring to the first image, the simple GTK file-save dialog.

    My point was how can I tell what an image is (aside from the filename) from the list view...

    Re: GTK File Selector Hate.

    Or perhaps the better idea is to sort your images better so you don't have 1032 in one folder :p

    I could see your argument about waiting for thumbnails making sense on something like XFCE, but on...

    OK, I've done a reset and run a test.

    I disagree. I've got a folder (on a NTFS-3G mounted filesystem no less) that contains 663 images, and it only takes about 15 seconds to generate all the thumbnails from scratch and Nautilus remains...

    Re: Could this kill linux gaming?

    I think it's pretty pathetic that Linux has come to the point where it is mostly useless without GPL-infringing (but tolerated) binary drivers.

    Re: Is DivX closed source?

    XviD is open source and can decode DivX just fine.

    Though there are some software patent issues (in the USA) that prevent it from being included by default.
