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"

 exif metadata

 by benjaminisant on: Mar 11 2008
Score 50%

A feature I miss with krename or any other renaming tool is a way to massively edit file embedded metadata for formats that support it (mp3, jpeg ...).

It would be really cool to be able to change not to only the title but also exif metadata. Will it be able to ?

Note Reading exif metadata like the shot time would also let the user sort pictures from several cameras (with different naming scheme) in the right chronologic order before renaming them all.=> very usefull when collecting all the pictures after a mariage ;)

I do not think that metadata editing is what a renaming tool should do, so I don't think this is likely to happen

What might happen is sorting by data/time. Then metadata could be used (when exist). But this is something for a future release...

 small resolution

Hi !

Thanks for gwenrename. As a Beta-version, it works quite good and is a really handy application.

However, there's one problem: I have tried it on a laptop with a screen resolution of 1024x768. The gwenrename windows is too big in vertical size, the OK button is under the panel. My solution is to set the windows as "keep above others", but this isn't very elegant.

Maybe you should redesign the interface of gwenrename to fit smaller screen resolutions. On big screens it works very good, so it shouldn't be changed too much. Maybe lowering the minimum hieght of the file-list would help, at least for 1024x768 screens.

Thanks for reporting. I didn't realise it got so big...

Please download the patch (gwenrename-1024x768-patch.tar.gz), extract it in gwenrename-1.1-beta4, and execute the commands (instructions are included in the tar.gz file):

patch -b -p0 < gwenrename-1024x768.diff
make clean

Then install as usual, for example:
su -c 'make install'

This is a (hopefully) temporary solution until I figure out something more elegant...

The short answer is: yes I do :)

The longer answer is that it'll be done after i start using KDE4; and I'm affraid I'm not convinced it can replace KDE 3.5.9 yet...

 Not used by gwenview...

 by spiros2907 on: Jul 5 2009
Score 50%

Unfortunatelly, gwenrename cannot be used by gwenview anymore, because:
- gwenview v. 1.4 is a kde3 app but gwenrename is now a kde4 app, so the paths have changed - the desktop file is in the wrong directory. (but it could be copied there...)
- gwenview v. 2 (kde4) does not use external tools any more - this feature has not been ported yet. So we'll just have to wait on this one :)

The good news is that we can use gwenrename from Konqueror and Dolphin!!!

I am sorry to hear that...

Can you please provide the following info (execute the commands)?

echo "$KDEDIRS"

kde4-config --prefix

find `kde4-config --prefix`/share/icons/hicolor/ -name "gwenr*"

ls `kde4-config --prefix`/share/kde4/apps/gwenrename/icons/hicolor/16x16/actions

PS. Feel free to contact me by email

Problem solved

KDEDIRS was empty so the icons were installed under /share/... instead of /usr/share/... or /opt/kde/share/... and such. Using the following command solved the problem:

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull ..

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.
