Re: [kde] WebP Wallpapers




Hi,

Thank you for your answer. I've been looking for a way to contribute to KDE since I got in love with it a few months ago. I'll dig into this and maybe this is my initial step into the project.

Thank you!

Hi!

This is my first post at the KDE mailing list. Not sure whether this
is the right list to mail to.

Recently, I've been playing with WebP image format, and after a few
benchmarks I decided to convert all my wallpaper images from JPG to
WebP.

The problem I'm having is that KDE doesn't seem to support WebP
wallpaper images, since I can not select one of them to set as my
wallpaper.
Very new image format. Some of the apps that do support it, do so
through BMP (ugh!) transforms. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebP#Support

Limited support is available in KDE:-
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=253572
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=267365


Does anyone have ever tried to do is or know whether it is supported
or not?
I researched it first, found limited KDE support, and that it was still
a far from compelling image format to adopt.
Not as optimised as ImageZero[*1], and has a number of shortcomings:-

[*1]http://imagezero.maxiom.de/

Maybe this is just a filter being missed at the image selection box
(the filter displays only: *.png *.jpeg *.jpg *.xcf *.svg *.svgz
*.bmp), and maybe adding *.webp will solve the issue.
No. Read the bugreports.

If someone can confirm this as a possibility, I'll fill a bug and try
to patch it myself.
Please read the referenced bug reports (now consolidated), and add to
them if necessary.

My system is a Gentoo, with KDE 4.11.5 (latest version avaiable for
Gentoo), Gwenview happily displays WebP just as does Dolphin
thumbnails.
