Ubuntu 6.06 has Gwenview (half done = no plugins)

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 03, 2006 02:39 AM
1- Gwenview does come with Ubuntu 6.06. But, it has no plug-ins... since you are so smart why don't you post how to get plugins into Gwenview to work. It's a pain in the ass... and Newbies are not going to get it going. Period.

There is no way and no help to fix this either!

Gwenview, with Plugins allows for a user to select a bunch of photos direct from a camera, and it will compress the images to about 50k or less, all in batch, then it auto sends them to Evolution or Thunderbird, auto opens an email message, puts the photos as attachments to the message, easy just address the email and off go your pictures to your friends.

What other Photo tools do this (that Ubuntu or Kubuntu, or Xubuntu, or Edubuntu have installed by default), so a user just finds it and can use it just as soon as the OS is installed and the email client is set up? Do you know?
