Default Re: 180.22 breaks Kuickshow

I had to build Kuickshow myself as it's no longer supported by Redhat distributions. Maybe there's a compile option I can change to prevent it using SHM.

Is that Ubuntu package a KDE4 version of Kuickshow (presumably using compatibility KDE3 libraries)? I've asked before on KDE mailing lists about the future of Kuickshow, and their attitude was much the same as NvFuchs above. As far as I'm concerned, they may as well say "Use Windows instead!" No image viewer provides all the functions of Kuickshow in such a convenient way - I've tried many. We shouldn't be trying to make everyone use the same apps! I'm actually planning to port Kuickshow to qt4 eventually if no-one else is going to do it. I don't see moving to imlib2 as essential, though, as it hapily coexists with imlib.
