xnview in linux slow to move files

Post by enxdtw »


I am using xnview to sort images into different folders. I like the dialog interface for doing this (but it should be configureable top allow more directories - and a short-cut key moving/copying to a specific directory would be a nice feature). My problem though is that xnview can take about 4 seconds to move a file (copying maybe I can understand, but moving should be quick). It takes a similar time whether 1 file is being moved or several files. The directory that I am currently processing contains 8625 images! I think it was a bit quicker on a smaller directory.

Thanks for any help
