Thanks for letting me know!

It's fixed on GitHub by adding a DEPENDS to the resource generation (tested with -j2 and -j4):

Looks very good. And thanks for making it possible to increase the font size for the file information. But please, can you also do this for the information on the thumbnail? I really cannot read anything on them (I have chosen the biggest possible size for the file information and that is the smallest possible size for me).

Maybe you can also add an option to increase the size of the shown file name in the upper left corner? Maybe an option to increase all text? And maybe even more than the biggest size now is?

Hi janet,

Thanks for the feedback! I think, it'd really be a good idea to be able to adjust the font size of all text in general... I'll look into that! You'll probably be able to see it implemented incrementally in the code on GitHub, as for the next release I'll solely be working on fixing/improving/updating the current feature set.

Regards
Lukas

CMakeFiles/photoqt.dir/slideshow/slideshowbar.cpp.o: In function `SlideShowBar::SlideShowBar(QMap<QString, QVariant>, QWidget*, bool)':
undefined reference to `Phonon::AudioOutput::AudioOutput(Phonon::Category, QObject*)'
Any ideas?

Hi Voroshek,

Can you make sure, that you have Phonon installed on your system?

You could try passing the "-DPHONON=OFF" to cmake before compiling (though this will disable the Phonon features, i.e. playback of music during a slideshow). Starting with the next version 1.1 (which should be coming over the next few weeks), Phonon will no longer be needed, but I'll make use of the Qt5 Multimedia functionality...

Hi.
Yes, i have install all phonon librares and headers and i have try the "-PHONON=OFF". My sound system is damaged, maybe why.
I did not know, any application can not be installed for this.
Thanks.

Hm, with Phonon installed, there should be no problem... Which system/distro are you using?

Btw: It's "-DPHONON=OFF", don't forget the "D" after the dash "-" (though that might just have been a typo here)...

If nothing works, try passing the above flag to a fresh compilation (i.e. delete "old" build/ folder and re-create it)...

After re-create in new "build" with "-DPHONON=OFF" compilation run good (of course I have typo here :-)).
Thanks for your help and program, it is fine.

Well, that sounds like exiv2 is missing on your system...

Btw: I'd recommend using v1.0 since it brings many updates and bug fixes.

Hello, great viewer. But I have a problem with opening some images by clicking on them directly from desktop by double clicking on them, for example. When opening from inside of your program, everything works. I found out that this is due to some extra characters in file names of that images, or/and in the path of the image. That are some Czech characters: "ě,š,č,ř,ž,ý,á,í,é,ú,ů,ó,ň,ď,ť and it's upper case equialents.
In example:
/home/user/obrázky/foto.jpg -> will not show
/home/user/obrazky/foto.jpg -> will show
/home/user/obrazky/růže.jpg -> will not show
/home/user/obrazky/ruze.jpg -> will show
/home/user/OBRÁZKY/foto.jpg -> will not show

Can you please fix it? As I said, this is amazing and fast viewer, but for now unusable for me because I have very much image names named in Czech.

Thanx :-)

Hi Sagart,

Sorry for the late reply, have been gone on holidays the last three weeks...

Did you try the latest development snapshot? This issue should already be fixed there. You can find the latest code on github: https://github.com/luspi/photoqt

Let me know if that works...
