gThumb creates .gqv files that gqv cannot read

Bug #354401 reported by Xyem on 2009-04-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gthumb (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gthumb

I've created a catalog of images in gThumb but when I try to view the relative .gqv collection file in gqv, gqv thinks there are no images in the collection.

The reason for this is because gThumb does not use normal paths ( e.g. "/home/xyem/image.jpg" ) in the file, instead using the file protocol path ( "file:///home/xyem/image.jpg" ) which is completely unnecessary and breaks compatibility with gqv ( rather rude considering it is gqv's file format ).

Expected behaviour would be for gThumb to omit the 'file://' prefix so gqv can read the created collection file. This could be a "special case" in gThumbs code.
