To not clutter the Bug tracker, continue conversation of Bug 443168 here.
In reply to JoostR [comment 26]
You are assuming that people want a link between Dolpin and Gwenview: I personally don’t see the value of such a link, I even think it will be inherently confusing for any users that don’t or rarely use Dolphin, but I think my bug report left that open.
Yes, it may be assumed. Dolphin is default KDE file browser, Gwenview is KDE default image browser/viewer. The value of such a connection definitely exist. This is general behavior. Look how it works in Windows for example. The default viewer follows the sorting order in Explorer.
Such an extra setting to follow Dolphin could be a solution, but as somebody who doesn’t see the value of a link between Dolphin and Gwenview I personally would find that it just adds clutter to a great app. Some people use other file managers than Dolphin, and these kinds of links between apps confuse the principle of making simple apps that are good at one thing.
This is not a clutter. We should make it good for many people. As you can see, there are lots of duplicate bugs asking to add synchronization. If you prefer that to not happen, you can disable the “keep dolphin order when opening”.
As far as I am concerned the bug I reported is that gwenview does not adhere to its own settings when you open it directly, which is really bad.
When you launch it directly, where does it not following its own settings? If you mean when from going from Start page, than see Bug 464959.
Also I really don’t want to make this personal in any way, but it seems to me you are the first person in this thread who was confused by that original title, probably because you were looking for a solution for your issue, which is slightly different?
Did not I explained that in comment 21?
So perhaps you should perhaps file a bug report for your issue, or I believe you are citing a bug report of your issue that already exists, I didn’t check.
Ok, I will repeat. For me the issue is that Gwenview currently does not follow Dolphin’s sorting order when opening from dolphin. But as some people want to enforce it to not follow it (I mean, when launched by image click), the option is needed.
So if you don’t mind, I am changing the title back to a slighly modified version of the original: ‘on starting gwenview ignores its own settings concerning sort order’
As I said above, please verify you are talking about Bug 464959. If that is the case, please change it back.
