Thread: Running Gwenview in Ubuntu?

  1. Running Gwenview in Ubuntu?

    I am running Ubuntu 7.10; since there is no letter in front of it, I
    assume it is the Gnome GUI. I used Synaptic to install Gwenview. It
    listed a bunch of KDE libraries that were needed, so I agreed to install
    those as well. The bar graphs did their thing, there were no error
    messages. But when I execute Gwenview from the pulldown menu, nothing
    happens. When I right click on a graphics file and ask to open it in
    Gwenview, nothing happens. I did ps -u to see
    if there were any Gwenview processes running in the background, but I
    didn't see anyting with Gwen in the name.

    Any idea what I am missing?

    No idea at all.

    However, I can give you a tip on troubleshooting. When something like
    this happens, it is worthwhile opening a "terminal" window
    Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

    Then enter the launch command at the prompt.

    For instance
    $ gwenview

    This will probably give you some messages. They may be understandable
    to you, or they may not.

    If it's the latter, post the message here and myself or someone else
    here may be able to help further.

    Good luck.

    I have no love of the sweet baby jebus, but I agree. The human mind is
    not case sensitive. One of the things Windows/DOS and languages like
    Pascal got right.

    "The name "GNOME" was proposed as an acronym of GNU Network Object Model

    intention of creating a distributed object framework similar to
    Microsoft's OLE.[5] This no longer reflects the core vision of the GNOME

    As such, some members of the project advocate dropping the acronym and

    OK.

    I've just done a test on my system and Gwenview runs fine with Gnome.
    However, I believe you are going to need the whole of the KDE-Base
    installed.

    It may well be overkill for the job you're attempting though but here
    goes anyway

    Either of the following commands should cure the issue
    $ sudo apt-get install kdebase

    or (and preferable IMHO)
    $ sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

    Both are large upgrades and will take some time even over a fast
    broadband connection.

    It may be worth waiting for someone else to come along though, as they
    will possibly advise a less "sledgehammer" approach.

    Try reinstalling gwenview first. In terminal:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall gwenview

    If that doesn't work, then try installing kdelibs, it may not be as
    grand an install as kdebase. If that don't work, then kdebase.

    Gwenview was installed automatically for my 7.1 kubuntu. Works fine too.
    Was it missing from the OP's CD ? ... and is it, despite the "G" start
    letter, actually a k program ?

    Thanks

    Installed kdelibs, kdebase, reinstalled gwenview, and finally rebooted.
    Nada.

    I was trying to show him the correct way to spell the word.

    You obviously have a big problem with correctness.

    As Dan C would say, booger off, creep. (I threw in the creep part.)

    "some members of the project advocate" ...

    How is it spelled at the Wiki? GNOME!

    How is it spelled in Synaptic, et al? GNOME.

    How is it spelled at http://www.gnome.org ? You go look and then tell
    them that they are wrong.

    Don't tell me *I'm* wrong; I have better things to do than try to force
    horses to drink.

    The EULA sounds like it was written by a team of lawyers who want to tell me what I can't do. The GPL sounds like it was written by a human being, who wants me to know what I can do.

    John. small wonder the OP was unsure which case to use. Even Gnome/GNOME
    project members are debating which one to use. Apparently the full name
    that the acronym is based on is no longer relevant. (wikipedia /GNOME
    entry under the HISTORY heading.)

    It may be time to opt for the whole desktop

    $ sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

    There is obviously some kind of missing file stopping gwenview from
    running correctly.

    So, by nada, you mean same exact error in the terminal? No need to
    reboot except for kernel updates (normally).

    Gwenview uses libpng to provide C code to manipulate PNG files; and
    since your error message mentioned glibc. Try reinstalling libpng:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall libpng12-0
