Unable to view animated png files

Post by kishinnokamen »

Up until recently, I've been able to view animated png files. However, it's now telling me that it can't load the file. What happened?

This is supposed to be fixed in v0.99.1.

Well whatever happened, it didn't fix my issue. I wonder what could be happening?

Here's one.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Reading it from the application gives me a KIO error. However, it is able to read it if I open it from my file explorer into XnView.

Now that's probably a whole other issue related to KDE Linux, which I have posted about in another thread.
