Rotating JPEG images with feh [SOLVED]

A funny thing happened to me using feh today.

It seems it can't rotate JPEG images 90 degrees (neither clockwise, nor counterclockwise). Whenever I try (with different files), feh dies with the following error message:

Bogus virtual array access

It can do it if it's 180 degrees. It can also rotate PNG images 90 and 180 degrees without any problem.

Did someone else experience this? Is the new libjpeg to blame? Should I open a bug report?

Re: Rotating JPEG images with feh [SOLVED]

I'm not sure feh is actively developed/maintained any more, but you could email the author* - I'm sure he'd fix something like this. If indeed it is a bug (of course). Can't check myself, yet - will do later.

Meantime check imagemagick (and the convert command), if you need an alternative.

* though I'd be happy if I was wrong.

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm using now.

Apparently the last version of feh is from 2005. I never thought it was so "old".

It's a real pity if feh is not maintained any more. I really, really like it.

That's indeed really sad to read! I switched to feh as my only pic viewer a couple of weeks ago. I ran into this problem as well. Did you send an email to the author? If you want me to do that, I could do it as well. Just in case you are a shy person :-P

Feel free to do it. I'm kinda shy when it comes to stuff like that, indeed smile

I wrote an email to the author, so far I didn't get an answer :-(

Re: Rotating JPEG images with feh [SOLVED]

What a shame... Is imagemagick an appropriate alternative or are there any others?

The new(!) feh 1.4 from [extra] works!

Awesome. This is the power of open source. It can "raise the dead"! big_smile

Very gladly making this as [SOLVED].
