Webp support in nautilus and eog eye of gnome


Does it work for you? Can you share your config?

I have found this nixos-configuration/configuration.nix at 6921c4d6b0589d9e276b3f653b33770a49894bee · Shou/nixos-configuration · GitHub

but haven’t checked it yet.

Also there is comment:

THIS DOESNT WORK. something Absolutely Imperative is going on with pixbuf-gdk

I am not sure if eog will work with this settings.

Anyway, I will check it in free time. I thought it will be easier to have webp support. :smiley:

services.xserver.gdk-pixbuf.modulePackages is just a hack used for packages that are not properly wrapped with wrapGAppsHook. Any package following best practices will include a wrapper that sets GDK_PIXBUF_MODULE_FILE so the value set by the global environment will be ignored.

The only way to fix this is to add webp-pixbuf-loader to eog dependencies but it currently will not work due to the reasons described in the manual so that would need to be fixed first.

Thanks. Is there issue created for that?

Cannot find one at the moment. Perhaps we just discussed that on PRs like Make gdk-pixbuf support avif by mkg20001 · Pull Request #102189 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub and never got around to creating one.
