Description Mark Purcell 2009-03-09 11:09:13 UTC
Version:           0.9.5-beta3 (using 3.5.10, Debian Package 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-1+b1 (5.0))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.28-1-686

Subject: digikam: doesn't open XCF files with GIMP
Date: Wed, 31 Dec 2008 17:36:09 -0600

Package: digikam
Version: 2:0.9.4-1
Severity: normal

With JPG and TIF(F) files, I can right-click->open_with->(several
choices, including GIMP). With XCF files, the "open_with" list is empty.
This seems odd, since XCF is GIMP's native format.

Comment 1 caulier.gilles 2009-03-09 11:15:27 UTC
This is not a digiKam problem. file types/applications associations are done in KDE control panel. digiKAm use it as well. that all...

Git commit d9a57550ee4d08f1ab612723b315348af9bab9da by Gilles Caulier.
Committed on 09/05/2020 at 12:31.
Pushed by cgilles into branch 'master'.

Switch all digiKam bundles to last 5.70 which now support new Gimp XCF file format.
See KF5 release announcement : https://kde.org/announcements/kde-frameworks-5.70.0.php
"KImageFormats: Add support for modern Gimp images/XCF files"
This will permit to digiKam and Showfoto to show XCF thumbnail and load preview/full image (read only)
