* 25 Feb 2010: added repository for Fedora packages

* 22 Jan 2010: following all the suggestions, the OpenOffice.org Thumbnail plug-in has been renamed to OpenDocument Thumbnail (kde-odf-thumbnail for the sources and Fedora packages). IMO it makes no sense to open a new project in KDE-Apps.org, because the project is identified by its ID (110864), not by its name. So I renamed this page, and also the source files. Version remains the same (1.0.0).

* 13 Jan 2010: added RPM packages for Fedora 12 "Constantine"

* 1.0.0 - Minor changes: updated license, added license file.

In case you're interested, I ported this to KF5 last weekend.

The patch is meanwhile part of openSUSE's package in KDE:Extra...

Thanks that's great.
I wonder if you would be able to do a KF5 version for Arch/Manjaro users in the Arch User Repository? Or other distro users? I'd be happy to offer a small bounty..

Nice, but it doesn't seem to use a consistent size in the preview pane. I notice that pdf, txt, etc. previews are shown larger (typically) than openoffice documents.

Really great!

And the opensuse 11.2 package also works on 11.1

Not to be too picky, but shouldn't this be called "OpenDocument thumbnail plugin"?
OpenDocument formats are not just OpenOffice.org's format...

Nice job, anyway :)

well... the Thumbnails/thumbnail.png file belongs to the ODF specification; I'm aware that OOo is not the only one generating ODFs (also Lotus Symphony, AbiWord, KOffice, and may be others do), but I've tried this only with OOo ODF implementation; that is, in order to rename the thumbnailer, I should try the other implementations too. I really have no time for that.

I'll check with Koffice's formats and comment here, but as you say, it's ODF spec, therefore should be like this in any OpenDocument-compatible program's files.

OK, I checked with KOffice 2.1.0, and both KWord and KSpread (I assume the whole suite) create the Thumbnails/thumnail.png file, but it is all white.

So they create it, according to spec, but as a placeholder for now.

Anyway, has anyone proposed having this by default in KDESC on KDE Brainstorm? :P

it works without any changes for me. I have a standard ubuntu 9.10, with all the necessary ubuntu packages to compile sources under kde & qt4.

Anyway, try to add:

FIND_PACKAGE(Qt4)

before that line (line 4) in CMakeLists.txt

As I wrote in the subject I'm trying to compile your app on a Ubuntu 9.10 box

Hi Leo,

I guess you are missing the KDE development packages.

In Fedora they are called kdelibs4-devel, I guess you can try:

$] sudo aptitude install kdelibs4-dev

Notice that this will install a lot of other packages.

Also notice that this already packaged and available on (K)Ubuntu repos:

You are right!! I'm so sorry ... I've not seen it! SHAME ON ME !

BTW the dev pack was installed on my system ;)

Very nice idea and really simple and extremely efficient implementation (that is a plus). :-)

Is it already in KDE SVN somewhere?
If not then you should upload it and move to kdereview to try to include it in KDE 4.4.
