GTK Photo Gallery

GTK Photo Gallery is an album to manage small and medium-sized photograph collections. It allows quick management by processing multiple files together. Rotate, delete, move, and manage descriptions can be done for all files in one directory at once. It is possible to upload pictures to an online laboratory to order prints. GTK Photo Gallery is implemented with GTK2-Perl, and due to the lack of a Web server in between, it is much faster than CGI-based scripts. It uses the same directory structure as (and can be used together with) My Photo Gallery (a set of CGI scripts). It is possible to export (and import) an Album into 700 MB large parts for easy CD backup, including static HTML pages to navigate the CD. This can also be used to create a simple album for the Web.

            You better ask this in a Mandrake Forum, or search for it, this is probably be a FAQ.

            glib2.4 gtk2 2.4

            I would dearly love to try this out, running a web based photogallery seems over kill to me. However, it doesn't look like Mandrake 10 is going to 2.4 for a bit yet, they seem to like it at 2.2

            Unless someone with Mandrake says that I can just tgz, ./iinstall, make ... in 2.4.6 and configure my make such that it goes into /usr/ and not /usr/local, it is way too much headache to attempt this. And to rpm -e out 2.2.4-9.mdk and a .tgz install could muck up so much stuff I use a lot.

            Any good rpm's out there for GTK2 2.4 and libGTK 2.4 for
