View Full Version : [ubuntu] thumbnails in nautilus automatically rotated

July 1st, 2009, 04:43 PM

Since Jaunty, i observed that pictures thumbnails in Nautillus are displayed in the correct orientation automatically. Which is great, as you don't have to manage this anymore, but...

I would prefer Nautilus to NOT autorotate the thumbnails, because I need to know the real orientation (as that generates problems with my photo album).
Actually only Gimps tells me the real orientation (at file opening).

I found how to disable the feature in Eye of Gnome (using gconf-editor and going to /apps/eog/view/autorotate). But that one is OK for me.

What I need is to disable the feature in Nautilus. Is it possible ?

small UP.

Nobody knows ? how (and why) Nautilus thumbnails automatically rotates JPG files ?

Could it be somewhere around Gconf-editor -> Gnome - thumbnailers ? but I cannot find anything related to JPG files, nor the way to disable any "autorotate" feature..

Please help !
