it seems that gthumb doesn't want to compile too :

gth-exif-data-viewer.c: In function `update_exif_data':
gth-exif-data-viewer.c:376: erreur: pas assez d'arguments pour la fonction « exif_entry_get_value »

if you soft link /usr/lib/ to /usr/lib/ it appears to work fine for me as a temporary fix.

Same error here, I'm interested in trying what your talking about William but I don't understand what it means to soft link. Any help is appriciated, thank you.

Oh, if by soft link you mean just copying as then I did that and it seemed to work!

I just went "cp /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/"

Uh-Oh... Well, I now no longer know if this is a gthumb problem but when I did that I got gthumb to work but on certain pictures it just closes out with no explination... when running from console I got this:

(gnome_segv:2709): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

And if I just try to get the properties of the image that crashes gthumb in nautilus, nautilus quits unexpectedly.

i am looking at solution but it looks like it is an upstream bug, if anyone has an idea to fix it without altering the system itself i would be happy.

And john it are probably jpeg that make gthumb/nautilus crash rigth ?
if so this is due to incompatiblity with the new exif lib ;)
Comment by arjan timmerman (blaasvis) - Friday, 09 July 2004, 09:45 GMT
ok i will run again i remove libexif and rebuilded nautilus/gthumb without it ;)
