[ANSWERED] How to delete images with Pix and Gthumb?

Post by InChrist »

Hi :)

As far as I remember I could do this well.
It is practical for me, going through the taken pics to reduce them easily, while viewing them big, not in thumbnail view.

Since now hittig the Delete key does not delete anymore from the disk inside Pix and Gthumb but only removes it from the view inside Pix and Gthumb temporarily (see attached pic).

How can I restore the function to really delete pics inside these applications?

Happy about clear and competent help.

Greetings,
Klaus

With Pix you should be able to highlight the picture and right click and choose Delete

Hi Lance

Thank you for the encouragement. :)

Yes, deleting via the context menu does work fine. Also with a pic clicked, displayed big.

I wonder why the delete key does not delete really from the disk when used in Gthumb and Pix, but only in Nemo ... :?:

Blessings, Klaus

The delete key in nemo by default moves it it to the trash. Right click delete, permanently deletes. You can edit behavior preferences in nemo so that the keyboard permanently deletes. Something I set right away.

Hi Lance, thank you.

How to increase the pixels of the thumbnails in Nemo as it is really unsharp when I increase the view size ... ?
