#639 Thumbnail View displays icons misaligned with grid

I am running Lubuntu 12.10 amd64 bit, with the default version of PCManFM installed, PCManFM 1.0.1

When I view my home folder with the "Thumbnail View" option from the view menu, some icons are not rendered aligned with the grid. I only saw this happening with my home folder, possibly because the folders ".nv" and ".pki" have short names?

Steps to reproduce:
Go to home folder, and set the View option to "Thumbnail View" and check "Show Hidden".
Try re-sizing the window horizontally until some icons render misaligned with the grid.

  • This bug isn't related to 'Show Hidden' option but rather to file name lengths in each row. This issue was found some time ago and is already fixed in current Git repository. The fix will be in shortcoming version 1.0.2 release too.
    Thank you very much.

    I just cloned the current git, and just installed it, and the bug is still there. Unless I did something wrong while building/installing it. The About dialog does say PCManFM 1.0.2~alpha1...

    Or did I misinterpret your post?

  • Have you upgraded libfm too or just pcmanfm? This behavior was fixed in libfm, not in pcmanfm.
    Thank you.

    I cloned git for libfm, and I think I installed it correctly, but I still have the error. Any way to tell that PCManFM is using the right version of libfm? (I did do a restart, so that's not it)

     
  • You can check which file pcmanfm uses by running ldd /usr/bin/pcmanfm - it will show some line like that (this example is from my system):

    libfm-gtk.so.3 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libfm-gtk.so.3

    That /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libfm-gtk.so.3 file should be the file you've installed from Git. If you have file from distro then you should remove it and rerun /sbin/ldconfig to let pcmanfm load new library. And from your screenshot I'm sure it still uses libfm-1.0.1 - with libfm from current git items should be placed much more tightly, even with smallest icon size, look into my screenshot, please.
