I really don't see how a fuzzy match is useful in general.
I didn't realise Gthumb has a find duplicates function,
but you can use FSlint for this which is in extras.
Read my reply again. Gqview can 'Find Similar Images', not just
'Find Duplicates'. I don't want to find exact duplicates - I used hardlink
for this (kernel-utils - /usr/sbin/hardlink). I want to find similar images
with different quality and size and decide which one to keep. If there is
a photo F17.jpg with size 860x700. Someone makes from it F17-wall.jpg with
size 1024x768 plus some extra messages on it. In this case I want just the
'original'. I hope you get my idea why I want gqview in the core.
As Michael Schwendt said gqview can find 'equal' or similar files in one
or two collections. You can also customize the comparison criteria. I have no
idea what algorithm it uses, I just know it works well.
I tried gthumb and it has less features and worse interface for me. Do
I have to open bugreport/RFE for this. How is it decided to remove an app
from the core, votes?
PS: sorry for my English...
