Description:

kfile plugins to show raw image info and preview images in konqueror.
- Needs libkexiv2, libexiv2 + its dependencies.
- Tested for CR2 images.
- WARNING: Overwrites the already installed kfile_raw plugin!
- Big parts taken from kdegraphics package, and some ideas from rawimage.
- Install by the usual "./configure && make && make install" (and eventually kbuildsycoca afterwards).

I know it did said KDE3.

By any chance, it will work on KDE4? I couldn't get it to make properly under KDE4.

Will you develop a version for KDE4?

This plugin won't ever work on kde 4.
KDE4 has only a very limited support for thumbnails (no automatic rotation, no raw images) and no support for displaying meta data.
You can right click on an item in konqueror and display its properties: Sometimes thumbnail image, never any meta data.
It doesn't make any sense to develop such a plugin, if no file management program is capable of showing the information.
But the lack of raw image support plus the extremely slow dolphin are the things that annoy me most in kde 4.
So I'll stay tuned.

I am getting the following error when I do make:

kfile_krawimageinfo.lo -lkio -lexiv2 -lkexiv2
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lexiv2
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [kfile_raw.la] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/bob/Download/krawimageinfo-0.1/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bob/Download/krawimageinfo-0.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I do have libkexiv2 installed

Any idea what is wrong?

Hi,
you'll need to install libexiv2, too.
Obviously, you could install libkexiv2 without libexiv2.
Please try again with installed libexiv2, and post the result.

that was the problem. Thanks for your help. My biggest annoyance with my Fedora install was not being able to see thumbnails of my raw files in konqueror.

Problem solved, this is great!

I have kexiv2 and exiv2 (Debian Lenny) and get this...
grep: /usr/lib/libexiv2.la: No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/libexiv2.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/libexiv2.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make[2]: *** [kfile_raw.la] Error 1


would love to get this working though.

Please try to find "libexiv2.la", for example using "locate libexiv2" or similar.

If it doesn't exist, please install libexiv2-dev package or similar.

If it exists, please try to run configure script with the correct prefix
./configure --prefix=/usr/...
or link the existing libexiv2.la to /usr/lib
