Description Ciaran Gillespie 2008-01-20 21:40:16 UTC
Version:           2.0 (using 4.00.00 (KDE 4.0.0) "release 1.2", compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release

Gif images in the latest version of KDE 4, using Gwenview 2.0 are not animated. This is not a huge feature missing from Gwenview, just something that is nice to have.
Comment 1 Aurelien Gateau 2008-01-20 22:25:53 UTC
Agreed. It should be fixed in 2.1 (KDE 4.1).
Comment 2 Adam Jimerson 2008-04-01 19:11:00 UTC
Same here, being able to watch animated gif's would be nice.
Comment 3 Kristjan Ugrin 2008-07-29 15:40:12 UTC
confirmed, it displays just the first frame.
Comment 4 Brendon Higgins 2008-08-05 07:07:25 UTC
Seems to still be missing from KDE 4.1. Since Gwenview's image viewer part seems to be the default in Konqueror, animated gif files that are opened while browsing don't animate; which is a bit disappointing. :/
Comment 5 Adam Jimerson 2008-08-14 01:00:05 UTC
Is there an update on the status of this?
Comment 6 Aurelien Gateau 2008-08-14 18:03:15 UTC

Comment 7 Aurelien Gateau 2008-08-14 18:09:22 UTC
It's in my TODO list. I just increased its priority. Hopefully it should 
be fixed for KDE 4.2.
Comment 8 Adam Jimerson 2008-08-14 22:00:55 UTC
Ok thanks.
Comment 9 Kristjan Ugrin 2008-08-14 22:02:01 UTC

Current SVN has support for animated gif now.
