Gthumb does not display any file anymore (Debian Lenny)
Suddenly Gthumb doesn't find *any* file to display anymore.
Whether I start it from the command line (gthumb .), or thru KMenu, whether I specify a filename (ghtumb mypic.jpg), whtether I traverse the directory tree, do a refresh, JPG, PNG, GIF files, none is ever being displayed. Not in the thumbnail page, not in the file listing, not in the preview.
Summarizing: gthumb acts if there doesn't exist any graphic file anywhere.
I am running Debian Lenny and KDE 3.5, but I am not sure if this behaviour started after an upgrade or so. I removed and purged gthumb, reinstalled it, nothing. Nuked all the gthumb config files, nothing. On other Lenny systems, gthumb runs fine.
I have been running a flaky hard disk in this system for some time, after which I made an image of the disk. I *could* be that some files are corrupted. I am thinking in the direction of GTK library files
Question is, what do I have to remove and reinstall to refresh everything which is gthumb/GTK related and which has to do which file management. It feels so dumb to do a complete reinstall just because of one program.
