Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have downloaded gthumb 2.6 source from gthumb.sourceforge.net and compiled it, but the problem still exists.
I use xv to view the picture and all is ok, so the pictures have no problem. which library does gthumb use to detect picture? libtiff? when I update with swaret, libtiff can't find libstdc++.so.6. I search my box and find libstdc++.so.5, I link it to libstdc++.so.6. but no effection.
I dont know what that could be. Do you have a slack 10 install disk. Try installing from disk. I have also found out that many times you need to uninstall a program before you reinstall it. Do you really need gthumb? Theres a program called kuickshow that is really good and It comes with slack 10.
I'm having the same problem, trying to use pine to look at images attached to email. gthumb looks in /tmp and sees "no image". I tried both of the above fixes:
> rm -rf ~/.local/share/
which didn't help, and then after searching for '*gthumb*' I renamed (rather than deleted):
> mv ~/.gconf/apps/gthumb ~/.gconf/apps/old_thumb
> mv ~/.gnome2/gthumb ~/.gnome2/old_gthumb
I restarted pine and had the same result: gthumb sees no image. (And in ~/.gnome2 there was a new gthumb/ directory. Magic!)
