Bug fixes and a few updates
WARNING: I've changed the name of the execuatable to
"pv" (from "pikview")
As stated above I've changed the name of the executable to "pv", mostly to avoid the word "pik" which is slang for the male reproductive organ in at least Dutch and Danish. I find this highly amusing but understand it might be hard to explain to your Grandmother when the splash screen appears before a slide show of your holiday snapshots.
For this reason I want to change the name of the application (as shown on the splash screen, about box etc.) for certian languages where this is a problem. I'd rather only have one alternative version to cut down of the number of splash screens etc.
Candidates for the new name in affected languages are "piktView", "pictView", "picView". I prefer "piktView" if that doesn't sound too bad. Comments, suggestions welcome.
General application translations are welcome as there is now a pikview.pot file.
Thanks to all those people who emailed me about various issues. I'm sorry I haven't replied to all of you (I've been very busy). I'll try to get back to you when I have some time.
After too long a time and a lot of requests, finally a new version...
This is a development version. However, there are very few known bugs on my system (RedHat-7.0). There will doubtless be a few configuration and packaging problems on other peoples machines. Let's hear about them!
I'll produce rpm packages for other systems when it settles a bit.
Please let me know if it works on your (non RedHat-7.0) system.
A few people have asked me how you get out of the viewer window into something else.
Press the Enter key.
I will make this a Right-Mouse-Button option in the next release. Note that you can configure which windows appear at startup via the Options menu.
PikView is an image viewer which uses the KDE libraries.
For more information check out the items in the General menu.
