geeqie was able to (extremely quickly) display a directory of raw files by showing the jpeg previews that are enclosed in the RAW files. This capability was broken by the C++ ABI change. I myself do not even understand what that means, but that's what it says on the related debian bug and the patch they applied fixed the problem for me ..

Additional info:
* package version(s) - 1.2.2-3
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
open geeqie
navigate to a folder with RAW pictures
click on one
a "broken image file" symbol is displayed.

how to fix:
apply the patch from
and recompile
then the same file is displayed again. Hooray.

Please also apply this patch.
This task depends upon

Has anyone sent this patch upstream?
Comment by Michael Hellwig (the_eye) - Wednesday, 16 December 2015, 22:31 GMT
the project lives on sourceforge, the last update was in 2012, they had a git on gitorious ..
I sortof presume it's dead?

which sucks because IMO no real replacement exists.

they moved development to their own website , you can see recent developments at its worth trying to use the sourceforge ticket system to try and upstream the patch
