XnView

Post by Van_Vinkle » 30. Sep 2021, 18:29

Seeing this thread, I tried to install XnView and downladed it from its page and triying to install, I got:

Code: Select all

root /opt/XnView # spkg -inv XnViewMP-linux-x64.tgz
ERROR: Package name is invalid. (XnViewMP-linux-x64.tgz)
ERROR: Package installation failed!
Any clue?

That's because that tgz is not a slackware/salix package. It is just a tar.gz file.

You can just extract it wherever you want and run it from there:

Code: Select all

tar xf XnViewMP-linux-x64.tgz
cd XnView
./xnview.sh
(I'm not really sure what this has to do with that other thread you linked about webp thumbnails)

From their web:

Install the krb5 package for that.

But you can view webp files just fine with viewnior and edit them with gimp. That thread was about thumbnails in thunar and just that.

gapan, you certainly installed a lot more than I did from the repositories (which is not surprising). I can't use viewnior or gimp on webp files.

Viewnior says:
"The specified locations do not contain images." (translated from German message)

The GIMP message reads something like:
"/home/galmei/.../abc.webp" could not be opened: Unknown file type (translated from German message)

There is no indication of what might be missing.

I can live with this because I rarely have webp files at the moment. For the few cases I use dwebp.

krb5 package installed and problem solved. Xnview runs well.

As usual, your support is fast and good.

Thanks a lot.
