Running a pretty vanilla install of Fedora 38 with Gnome 44.5.
I’ve installed the rpm for Shotwell, 0.32.2.
I’ve run into a few issues that, if I can figure out, would really make Shotwell a killer app for me.
- Not importing .heic files
I recently installed libheif, which instantly created thumbnails in Files. However, Shotwell doesn’t seem to even be importing the .heic files. My understanding is the 0.32 release started supporting heic.
Any suggestions on what I can do to import heic into Shotwell?
- Some video thumbnails not loading in Shotwell
The thumbnails load in Files, but not in Shotwell. I have not noticed a pattern on a specific file type. I’ve noticed it on .mov and .mts files. But some will have a thumbnail, and not strictly a size issue.
I recently tried installing ffmpegthumbnailer, but this did not have any impact on Shotwell. (I have not tried deleting any thumbnail cache. Some have reported this helps, but I’m not sure what files to delete.)
Any ideas what I can try to get video thumbnails loading in Shotwell?
- Faces detection support in Shotwell?
I’ve read that Shotwell now supports some form of face detection. However, I do not see this option anywhere.
Any clues if this was perhaps left out of the Fedora rpm? Otherwise, what do I need to enable Face detection in Shotwell?
Thanks much for trying to help me getting Shotwell fully up and running!
