Hello,

when trying to run eog, I get the following message:
(eog:4813): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: 11:49:04.247: Settings schema 'org.gnome.desktop.thumbnailers' is not installed
Trace/breakpoint trap

Before filing a bug, I would like to ask whether I simply need to remove
some gnome state files? I think I already deleted the obvious files, but
may have overlooked something.

Andreas

PS: In the meantime, I discovered viewnior, which also does the job.

You need to install gsettings-desktop-schemas.
This should probably be documented somewhere...

great, thanks a lot, this solved the problem.

So strictly speaking, gsettings-desktop-schemas should be a propagated
input of eog, and probably all other gnome packages? Compared to other
distros, this looks like a serious usability problem to me (and in a
sense, we are not tracking dependencies correctly).

Andreas

Hi there,

I’ve run into this too, thanks for the tip!

Instead of propagating the input, can we use wrap-program to wrap gnome programs with the right packages?
