View Full Version : [gnome] Bug in the way nautilus parses the filenames to thumbnail?

June 11th, 2009, 01:52 AM
I noticed when one invokes the built in "Rotate Images..." function in Nautilus by right-clicking on a JPG(i.e. Image.JPG) the resultant file "Image.rotated.JPG" does not get thumbnailed.

As soon as the '.' between Image and rotated is removed ('Imagerotated.JPG') the thumbnail shows right up, implying nautilus is parsing the filename from left to right looking for the extension after the first period it finds, rather than from the right.

This is on 9.04.

I assume you're using the ``nautilus-image-converter'' package -
BTW, thanks for introducing me to it!!!

I just installed it and everything works fine for me -
tested with a png and a jpg - Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty here.

For me, there is a 1~2 second delay before the thumbnail appears though.

curious, it works as expected on my desktop (x86_64) but fails on my laptop (x86)
