GwenRename is a series (batch) renaming tool. It was created as an external tool for GwenView, the image viewer for KDE, but it can be used from Dolphin and Konqueror as well. As that, the files to be renamed are passed to it as command line parameters, through the service menu mechanism.
It supports EXIF data extraction, file's timestamping and use of profiles.

How to use it:
GwenView: select file(s) - right click - "External Tools / Rename with GwenRename" (currently not applicable)
Dolphin/Konqueror: select file(s) - right click - "Actions / Rename with GwenRename"


GwenRename 1.1-beta7:
- Fixed EXIF manipulation crash

GwenRename 1.1-beta6:
- Fixed corrupted po files
- Added Czech (cs) translation, by Pavel Fric
- No changes to the source code

GwenRename 1.1-beta5:
- ported to KDE4!!!
- Visual ON/OFF switches have been added, so that options can be displayed/hidden. This makes more room for the items list (useful in lower screen resolution)
- When screen size is less than 800px, one of the ON/OFF switches will always be off, so that the program window can fit the screen
- Fixed the list invertion function
- Fixed the compound expressions read/write procedure. Thanks to John Bee
- Fixed compound expressions activation on program startup. Thanks to John Bee
- Fixed a bug in the list item removal procedure that could lead to a crush when various filename lengths are present

GwenRename 1.1-beta4:
- GwenRename can now be executed without parameters. In this case the user will have to select the folder cotaining the files to be renamed, through the "Folder selection" dialog
- A mode selection dialog was added. It will be presented to the user, when a single folder is passed to GwenRename
- Files/folders can now be added/removed from the list of items that will be renamed, from within the program, using the ListView context menu
- Started writing the user manual. Added help to the program dialogs
- Layout changes
- Many more minor changes

GwenRename 1.1-beta3:
- Ability to convert underscore/dash to space
- Use and manage compound extensions
- Layout changes
- Added icons to eliminate the icon installation problem. Thanks to Gunther Zilz
- Added a link to a Mandriva 2007.1 rpm by Gerardo Bueno (gejobj@gmail.com). For bug reports regarding this rpm please contact its packager

GwenRename 1.1-beta2:
Packagers bug fix release

- Fixed a icons installation bug reported by Gerardo Bueno, that would cause conflicts with package gwenview. No ghanges were made to the code

This bug affects packagers only, so if you installed from source, it won't interest you.
If you are a packager, please update to this release in order to provide consistent packages for your distro.
I am really sorry for the inconvenience

- Updated the link to the Mandriva 2007.1 rpm by Gerardo Bueno. For bug reports regarding this rpm please contact its packager

GwenRename 1.1-beta1.1:
- Added Spanish (es) translation by Gerardo Bueno. No changes were made to the code
- Added a link to a Mandriva 2007.1 rpm by Gerardo Bueno (gejobj@gmail.com). For bug reports regarding this rpm please contact its packager

GwenRename 1.1-beta1:
- Added the ability to convert spaces to underscore/dash

This is the first release of a series of beta releases, until I implement all the features
I want to add to version 1.1. These features are:
- Ability to convert spaces to underscore/dash - added to the current release
- Ability to add/remove files to the list of files to be renamed
- Ability to select and use part of the original filename for renaming

Each beta release will implement one of these features, and will be released only after it
has been thoroughly tested. So each beta release can be considered stable but not "fully featured"

everybody for the nice things you say about this little app.

Even though I haven't updated it for almost a year and a half, I had been receiving positive messages all this time.

Hope you like the new release

Best regards

 Really great

This app is really great. I have used krename for a long time but now this is my favorite.

A side note: Is there a way to only select part of the original file name?

I am very glad to hear you find it so useful

No I don't think you can do that right now... But it would be a nice addition. I will try to implement it in a future version

 patch for 1.1-beta2

 by spiros2907 on: Jul 3 2007

Hi all

It has been reported that gwenrename-1.1-beta2 running in suse 10.3 (more distros may have the same problem), displays an error message and terminates.
The error message is:

Memory allocation error
The program could not allocate memory needed for its execution.
Close some applications and try again

This message may be missleading and caused by gwenrename not beeing able to find an icon. Apply the patch you will find in the downlaod section, recompile, install and test.

No matter the outcome (successfull or not), please contact me, reporting your distro and KDE version and of cource the outcome of the patching.

 nice, and..

... what do you think the level of effort would be to add into this features like in this renaming utility (windows only :( )


The think I really like with this is the ability to essentially edit the file names in a "text editor" sort of format, and then have it just go do it.

Thanks for all the work on this tool! I've used it and appreciate it.

Well, that would be against the whole concept of batch renaming, wouldn't it?

I suppose it can be done, but the changes I would have to make are too extensive.

I realy don't know... Does anyone else really needs such a feature?

 My favourite app

Hi spiros2907.
GwenRename is my favourite app, because I'm amateur photographer and I'm renaming every photo with your utility.

There is only 1 feature I miss: Sorting by date (time). Because, when I'd like to rename photos from different cameras (they 've got different names), I have to sort them manualy.

Thank you for this excellent utility!

I am glad you find GwenRenamet so useful

Sorting by date (time) seems like an interesting feature. I will have it in mind for a future release.

Thanks for the comment

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
