Description:

Comicbook Thumbnail Plugin for KDE 4

*** This is only for 4.3.x and below users - Plugin will be included by default in KDE 4.4! ***

Description
-----------

A Thumbnail creator for KDE 4 that enables previewing ComicBook Reader files (.cbz, .cbr, .cbt) in Dolphin and elsewhere.

The screenshots show the previewer in action inside KDE 4's Dolphin File Manager

INSTALLING
----------

To install, download the file and unpack, then execute the following commands:

[indent]cd comicbook-thumbnails
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ../
make
sudo make install
kbuildsycoca4[/indent]

Close and restart Dolphin to see it in action.

NOTES:

[li]You might have to enable the plugin manually via Dolphin's Settings > Dolphin Settings > General > Previews (Check the "Comic Book" box).[/li]

[li]You may also have to adjust 'Maximum File Size' to an appropriate value (say, 40 MB) for the plugin to work on your large comic files.[/li]

Works for me with cbr-files but not with cbt. By cbt I mean .tar with changed extension, no compressing. I've compiled just yesterday, so I think it's newest version.

Sorry, overlooked the application/x-tar type. Fixed now, redownload the update and build and all types of tar must work under KDE (tar, compressed tar, gz, and bz2).

Have applied for a review for entry into 4.4 (Can't do 4.3, new Translation Strings).

You can view the reviewboard entry here:
http://reviewboard.kde.org/r/1983/

Have also improved the source a bit. Will put up a new download soon.

Thanks,
I've added this two lines to CMakeList.txt:

add_definitions (${QT_DEFINITIONS} ${KDE4_DEFINITIONS})
include_directories (${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR} ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR} ${KDE4_INCLUDES})

and now everything works!

Sorry, i've forgot to enable preview for "Comic Book files" in Dolphin configuration.
Besides my testing .cbr file was too large - preview works after changing "Maximum file size" in preview configuration.

So, everything realy works. Thanks again!

I should put this in the README, forgot about it. One has to set the maximum file size to something around 40 MB. Wish there was a per-plugin setting for this though.

Hi,

Updated the download with a newer CMakeLists.txt file. Redownload and build - it should work.

Thanks to the anonymous user tip [url=http://bitbucket.org/qwertymaniac/comicbook-thumbnails/issue/1/cannot-compile-in-ubuntu-904-kde-432]here[/url].

Thank you for reporting this in, am new at CMake :)

Thumbnailing fine with the Kubuntu 9.04 / KDE 4.2 and Kubuntu 9.10 (RC) / KDE 4.3.

Tested with the CBR and CBZ.

Nice work! It works flawlessly here (admittedly I've only tried it on .cbr files), and makes it a lot easier to find the one I want.

Just a question though: is it normal that the properties window thinks the contents of the file is a RAR-archive??

Report

C

qwertymaniac

10 years ago

Yes it is normal and its 'cause the .cbr (application/x-cbr MIME) is just a subtype of .rar (application/x-rar). They're just .rar files renamed and contain ordered image files :)

Glad to know that the plugin helped you! If you notice any bugs, do let me know :)

Here (KDE 4.3) the type is comic book archive.
