Re: Possible New FreeCAD Logo

Maybe OP is a lurking long-time user who loves FreeCAD and is moved to make it better. Or maybe OP is a design student trying to pad out a portfolio and score bragging points. I have no way of knowing. I want to believe the best about people and the contributions they offer but I'm coming to believ...

Re: Possible New FreeCAD Logo

the user experience and design of a panel, without further direction, needs someone that is familiar with the tool and can tell with precision what every button / area does. The point are the "further directions". Agryson, who created lots of icons, wasn't familiar with all of the functio...

Re: Possible New FreeCAD Logo

I gotta ask. What's the deal with the logo? Is it a prestige thing? I don't mean to be critical and I encourage people to contribute in any way they wish. I'm just very curious why it's ALWAYS the friggin logo! I think that everyone has started opensource contributions with something that is "...

Re: Fix thumbnail preview on XDG Desktops (#4078)

yes, sorry. It is indeed located in "/usr/bin" "/usr/share/bin" is a traditional place for this sort of executables, but it's not used now. Maybe freecad-thumbnailer should always be placed there by the installer, as well as the mimetype definition and thumbnailer config, but thi...

Re: Fix thumbnail preview on XDG Desktops (#4078)

This has a quite complete guide for thumbnail support in thunar: https://delightlylinux.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/thunar-not-showing-thumbnails/ The key pieces for using thumbnails in XDG desktop environments are: Registering the mime type...

PR #4080 - Reduce FreeCAD icon overlay size in thumbnails

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/4080

Re: Fix thumbnail preview on XDG Desktops (#4078)

The %s %i and %s parameters are filled by the file browser and have conventional meanings, so the first one is the desired thumbnail size, the second one the input file, and the third one the destination file.

Re: Fix thumbnail preview on XDG Desktops (#4078)

The FreeCAD.xml ( org.freecadweb.FreeCAD.xml by default) file, as well as FreeCAD.thumbnailer, and other support files are in the src/XDGData folder : https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/tree/master/src/XDGData. The xml file is normally installed on your system under /usr/share/freecad/share/mime/pac...

Fix thumbnail preview on XDG Desktops (#4078)

I've just sent a pull request tackling this issue: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/4078 The thumbnailer script (src/Tools/freecad-thumbnailer) needed some updates: now it doesn't depend on gnome libs (it doesn't need to) it works either with python2 and python3 a thumbnailer config file is a...
