Ok, I see my mistake. I SWEAR the first time I opened gpicview the
'About' box said it was a "Lightweight image viewer for Gnome".
I must be getting dyslexic as well as nearsighted...
Besides that, I thought Ristretto was a good fit because of it being
in the Xfce "family".
The version I have from Hardy says Lightweight image viewer for LXDE.
And no, just because an application declares it self as an Xfce application doesn't mean it makes it better than any other application.

Ok. The conversation at the end of that thread led me to believe that
it may have been mistakenly marked.

weird, maybe cause it's on a different monitor. This one looks similar
but smoother and more "glowy"

I'll agree one hundred percent with Vincent's reply to this one.
All those skinnable players look funky and 'out-of-place' to me and
always have, especially when you have to view it at double size due to
having a high-resolution monitor (hmm... imagine a player that uses
I do admit it's nice to have a separate media player. Totem's labeling
as a "Movie Player" always threw me off...
I don't know which one to suggest, honestly. I'll probably get used to
Hell, I was happy with Xfmedia (despite xine lib bugs...), who am I to

BTW- I noticed a few more things last night.
-First start of Mozilla Firefox started up with two tabs of ubufox
startpage that were both blank and a tab of the license page.
Subsequent runs brought up only one ubufox page. Still blank.
What build was this? What is the homepage set as? I take it you're connected to the internet when you try this?
-I opened a terminal and grep'd dmesg for errors. Apparently uvesafb
crapped out at some point because it couldn't find v86d.
A cursory web search looks like uvesafb has replaced vesafb as the
default framebuffer driver (confirm?) which depends on v86d
(http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Documentation/fb/uvesafb.txt). Doing a
web search for this bug came up with a healthy handful of reports so I
assume it's being worked on.
Either way, I assume that one's way upstream...
That's all I have for now, I'm downloading today's daily for more
