Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-raw-thumbnailer

In the Hardy 2.0.1-0ubuntu5 gnome-raw-thumbnailer package, the gnome schema XML file only includes the image/x-dcraw mime type. However, /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml has unique mime types for each camera raw format. The freedesktop mime types override the /usr/share/mime/package/gnome-raw-thumbnailer.xml mime definition and the thumbnailer fails to trigger.

To fix this problem, the schema file /usr/share/gconf/schemas/gnome-raw-thumbnailer.schemas needs to be updated to include not only image/x-dcraw, but the other mime types defined in the freedesktop.org.xml file.

In my case, my camera generates .crw raw files. By changing the references in the schema file from image@x-dcraw to @x-canon-crw, the thumbnailer correctly triggers.

Same comment as Matthew regarding mime-type type="image/x-sony-arw"...

Same for Canon CR2. If the file is created with the .CR2 extension, the thumbnail is created automatically. If the file is created with the .cr2 extension (image/x-canon-cr2), no thumbnail.

I'm updating the schemas file based on the latest subclasses of x-dcraw that I could find in shared-mime info. While doing this, I found some unexpected filetypes.

shared-mime-info has information for 5 image formats that the .xml file in gnome-raw-thumbnailer lacks: .ang, .k25, .raw, .sr2, and .arw. These will now work for the first time.

shared-mime-info does not have information for these file types that are in the gnome-raw-thumbnailer .xml: .bay, .bmq, .cs1, .dc2, .fff, .mos, .raf, and .rdc. These are likely parts missing from shared-mime-info, so I'm opening a task against shared-mime-info.

Once these are added to shared-mime-info then gnome-raw-thumbnailer's schemas will need to be updated again to support them.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue?

As an update, the above missing formats are still not in shared-mime-info as of 0.90, with the exception of .raf.
