There is a "RAW image converter" among the kipi-plugins so apparently Gwenview can now handle RAW images (?).

Gwenview can load and save all image formats supported by KDE.

Fantastic, I never knew that about geeqie. I'm using v1.1 (from slackware 14.0) and I
cannot see how one interfaces with a camera.
How do you connect to camera and copy/move/delete images?
Thanks.

Your camera doesn't show up on the desktop as a mass storage device (or external hard drive) when you plug it into a USB port?

Some do, many don't. AFAIK for many cameras you need a specific driver to read and write from the camera.

Which is why I am wondering, why aren't you using a card reader?

It does but I've never used it that way, I've always used digikam to connect
to camera so I guess I came to expect that is the only way to go.
live and learn :-)
thanks.

And this also explains, how I use Geeqie to access photos on a camera.

I've read this, too, but it's not working here, by default. I have Slackware64-current with all updates up to now and Digikam 3.1.0, so kipi-plugins are there. But I cannot open RAW files with Gwenview. BTW, Konqueror and Dolphin do show thumbnails of RAW images.

BTW, AFAIK Geeqie also supports PTP mode. Not sure, if it can do MTP by default, which is used by many new smartphones, but with mtpfs from SBo installed it should work, too. But the easiest is always USB mass storage mode, IMHO, if your device supports it.

Yes, you are correct. I downloaded a RAW file from the net and tried to open it with Gwenview, but it didn't work. Just about every other graphics app on my system will open it, but not Gwenview. So, I went looking around the 'Net for the "solution" and stumbled across this from, IIRC, the Gwenview author:

Kipi plugins are used to do things like importing/exporting images. They are not used to load images themselves. digiKam has specific support for raw images from libkdcraw.

I consider it out of Gwenview scope to have specific support for raw images (though I am considering getting support for at least viewing embedded previews when applicable). If you are into raw images, you probably want to use digiKam.
http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=213&t=101042

Confirms what I've thought all along. Another reason not to bother installing KDE.

Interesting! I've never searched for a solution, because stock Slackware already includes several programs for displaying and converting RAW images. Regarding KDE: Digikam is considered one of the best photo managers, at all, even when compared to commecial software.

And there is a couple of other Qt programs not requiring KDE. I think I already mentioned Photivo, and there's also Photo, as an image viewer.

I don't think this is correct. I am pretty sure Geeqie does not support PTP (or MTP) at all, nor does it sound like the developers want to do anything in that direction. Their scope is image viewing and image management. Do you have a reference for geeqie + PTP?

If you have a camera talks USB mass storage protocol, you can just mount it and access it from anything (including PTP). If you have a camera (e.g. Canon) that does PTP not mass storage, you need something in between Geeqie or Gimp and the camera. That could be command-line gphoto2 (which I use), or gphotofs (which I tried, mounts a PTP device as a file system). Rumor has it that the gvfs-gphoto2 thing we see on our Slackware 14 does this too, but I've never had any success with it.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/geeqie/Sourceforge site for Geeqie:

The development is focused on features for photo collection maintenance: raw format, Exif/IPTC/XMP metadata and integration with programs like UFraw, ImageMagick, Gimp, gPhoto or ExifTo.

So Geeqie uses gPhoto for PTP access (like many other programs).
