Image Thumbnail Previews

Hey guys, I just installed #! a few days ago as my first Linux/GNU OS.

It's fucking awesome... I finally realize how shitty winderp is, it feels so dirty and "thrown" together compared to Linux, so inefficient.

Anyways I'm trying to get a few things going that I feel are necessary in the image department.

In my file manager I would love to be able to see thumbnail previews instead of that default dead tree at sunset thumbnail, It's a bitch clicking on something to see what it is. How could I go about doing this? Is it possible to do this without switching to KDE or something? I would prefer to keep Openbox. Oh well, I guess I would just have to grab something other than Thunar. But I need to keep it light.

Also what would you guys recommend as a minimal image viewer? Something like Impression:Eyes.
If you are unaware of what that looks like it is just completely borderless, shows nothing but the image itself and relies on hotkeys to navigate. I guess I could use it in wine but would prefer something native.

Viewnior is as ugly as death itself... of course that's my opinion.

Thanks guys.

Re: Image Thumbnail Previews

I'm seeing something called "Tumbler" that could allow image previews.  Anyone have any experience with this?

I'm also seeing that Thunar should have that capability, albeit I'm not seeing how to get that going.

Alright guys, I have decided on Feh as my image viewer. But this issue I'm having now is getting Thunar to shoe preview tooltips.

The settings I'm being told to edit are doing nothing.

Re: Image Thumbnail Previews

Hey, I got it working. Sheesh I feel stupid.

But since changing that option my trackpad isn't working what the f**k?

Well, it still is allowing me to scroll but actually moving my cursor has stopped. Why? IS THIS!

Re: Image Thumbnail Previews

I'm glad the trackpad is working now.  As for the xrdb command warning, I haven't a clue; Google gives tons of hits for it, but I can't find anything I'd recommend as a solution.  (xrdb doesn't have an installation candidate because it's provided by x11-xserver-utils, which should be installed in a default #! setup.)  I'm scanning the xrdb man page right now, but nothing is jumping out at me...there's a -merge option, but I don't know what needs to be merged with what... ops

Re: Image Thumbnail Previews

You were experimenting with feh and tumbler earlier.  Did you uninstall either of them?

I was just about to suggest `sudo apt-get install -f` to see if that fixed things, but it looks like you have this sorted.  Might be a good idea to run that anyway, just in case anything else is broken that you don't know about.
