New and better version of the schema.

The thumbs are not forced to be squares anymore.
Comment 3 Lars Clausen 2007-03-08 20:48:46 UTC
Thank you for your contribution.  Having not dealt with GConf schemas before, I'd like to know where they go and what is the preferred way to incorporate them in an autoconf setup.
Comment 4 Florian Boucault 2007-03-17 22:50:41 UTC
I am really sorry but I do not have this piece of information.
Comment 5 Roland Stigge 2007-05-06 19:20:02 UTC
For including this into the autotools build environment, I would suggest looking at some example packages: E.g., evince. You basically need to have


in, and in the where handling the .schemas file, you take care of including the file to the tarball and have a gconftool call for registration like this:

GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE=$(GCONF_SCHEMA_CONFIG_SOURCE) $(GCONFTOOL) --makefile-install-rule $(schemafile)

Further, looking at the latest attachment, I would use "dia" instead of "totem" as <owner/>. (Copy'n'paste problem, I guess).
Comment 6 Jack Tanner 2007-08-24 18:09:48 UTC
Just a bit of triage. Since the reporter can't provide the help that Lars would like, it seems appropriate to clear NEEDINFO and set HELPWANTED. The bug is still present in Dia 0.96.1.
Comment 7 Lars Clausen 2007-10-28 09:25:09 UTC
Roland, would your suggestions work when Gnome is a configure-time option?
Comment 8 Roland Stigge 2007-10-28 09:50:30 UTC
Haven't tried, but I strongly assume that AM_GCONF_SOURCE_2 would just result in disabling the respective features. Finally, this is what autoconf macros are designed for.
Comment 9 Lars Clausen 2007-11-02 19:05:03 UTC
I looked at totem and evince, and neither has the file you mention.  Can you point me to a good example or, better yet, to actual documentation?  Googling around didn't help me much.
Comment 10 Christoph Wurm 2009-01-19 18:50:45 UTC
Closing this bug report as no further information has been provided. Please feel free to reopen this bug if you can provide the information asked for.
Comment 11 Jack Tanner 2009-01-19 20:37:33 UTC
It's still a valid bug... Dia is still not a thumbnailer. The information that's missing isn't about how to reproduce the problem (which is when NEEDINFO is appropriate), it's about how to fix it in the technical sense (which is when HELPWANTED is appropriate). Reopening.
Comment 12 Hans Breuer 2009-01-31 20:06:03 UTC
The scheme is no patch and I'm as unknowing as Lars on this issue. So either someone provides a patch (maybe ripped out from Ubuntu?) or this needs to stay open.
Comment 13 Roland Stigge 2011-12-29 13:11:50 UTC

I'm attaching the patch that I just added to the Debian package: The new GNOME 3.x moved from gconf to gsettings and therefore moved from gconf schema to thumbnailer files.

See patch.
