[SOLVED] Dolphin and Gwenview compatibility (use of /tmp)

Hello,

There's a strange bahavior of Dolphin and/or Gwenview:
Dolphin is opened in a folder containing several jpg files. When I clic one of them, it is displayed by Gwenview. So far so good. But when I go up one level, instead of seeing all the thumbnails of the jpg files in that fold, I see only one.
Gwenview is pointed to a /tmp/kde-username/gwenviewXXXX/ folder containing a symbolic link to the jpg file I clicked.
The expected behavior is to have Gwenview opened directly on the same folder than Dolphin.
Why do I have this? And more importantly, how can I correct?
I browsed the config options of the software, but found nothing.

Thanks a lot :)

Are you browsing a remote folder at the time you do this?

Hello,

No, I am on my hard drive. I tested with several JPG file in my home folder, I have the same behavior.

Really strange, and quite annoying.

I have not been able to reproduce this unfortunately.
Does it occur under a new user?

These links are created in these cases:
- Select more than one file in Dolphin
- Open Gwenview with the selected files (using, for example, "Open with > Gwenview")

This is done this way so that you can select a limited set of images and go through them. It should not happen when you select only one image. Is it happening when selecting one image for you?

That's an interesting feature. Thanks for the information.

Yes, I just click on one image, not a selection of several. And when I go to the upper level with Gwenview, I see only one image, the one I clicked on (which is actually a link to the real file).

I'll test with a new user this evening.

Hello,

Problem solved!

Here's what was the problem: I had 2 entries for Gwenview in my applications menu, one with options " %U -caption "%c" %i", the other one with " %U -caption "%c" %i /home/user/Photos".
The second one was used as default launcher. I changed it for the first one, now it works.

I found out with the test with a new user.

Thanks all for your help :)
