    ArtRage tools for Gnome (Unix/Linux)

    Hi there,
    Here is the first (beta) version of a script which installs ArtRage file handling in the gnome desktop.


    It provides :
    - file thumbnails
    - desktop and menu icons
    - file type associations

    ArtRage must have been installed first.
    It should work fine on ubuntu, on other distributions, you have to install development packages for cairo and gnomevfs.

    http://bookeldor-net.info/install-ar...me-thumbnailer (set the file as executable and launch it)

    Since it uses copyrighted images and since I have not discussed copyright issues with the ArtRage team yet, the license is very restrictive.
    - Redistributing and/or modifying this file is not allowed.
    - Redistributing and/or modifying files generated by the execution of this script is not allowed.

    The only problem I get is thus:

    cp: cannot stat `artrage.xml': No such file or directory

    I created it and installed it manually, and it works! (I also had to install a bunch of development libs - would be nice if this were automatic)

    I typically don't use Nautilus, but I'm just getting into computer graphics - so I'm sure it'll be useful to have AR thumbnails.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Merci Boucle d'or :-)

    Thanks for your script !
    It didn't work at first, but after a few packages install and a few correction it worked perfectly !!!
    (the artrage.xml should be created first, and the "features" variable has a problem, I don't know why)

    Now I can see my whole collection of beginners' style paintings :-)
    I got to improve my painting skills !

    Thanks again,
    and Happy New Year from France

    bye

    hmm
    is it possible to get this to work in thunar/xfce4? Gnome is just fat for my 250mb ram computer.

    where does artrage have to be installed exactly? does ~/.wine/... do the trick?
    What if we havent used wine-doors?

    Hi BookeldOr

    This tools seems quite useful.. unfortunately I am also getting the following error:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    rmistry@rmistry-laptop:~/Desktop$ ./install-artrage-gnome-thumbnailer

    (zenity:6052): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_value_get_string: assertion `G_VALUE_HOLDS_STRING (value)' failed

    (zenity:6052): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_value_get_string: assertion `G_VALUE_HOLDS_STRING (value)' failed
    cp: cannot stat `artrage.xml': No such file or directory
    rmistry@rmistry-laptop:~/Desktop$
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How do I create artrage.xml and where do I put it?

    Thanks

    This is an old thread, I'm hoping for answers as it looks really useful!
    I have the same problem as rax_m I'm on ubuntu 8.04 64 bit...

    I managed to create files for the packed ones and to build the thumbnailer, so I have all the libraries and dependencies satisfied.....

    but that's pretty far from installing it and having it work....
    Anyone know how to fix the script?

    A new version is available at the same URL that should do the trick for recent distros.
