Gthumb is normally available for thumbnailing. To be honest,

likely, f-spot. I personally like GQview, which is available in
extras, for jpeg viewing.
I would suggest that the document should state clearly
what application is in use.
Connecting a camera in the way described
does not bring up gthumb or f-spot on my Fedora-6 + KDE machine.

active group working to provide full KDE functionality for KDE.
Historically, GNOME has been better supported, but this is
Again, I suggest that it should say that
it is assumed the user is running Gnome,
