Background: I recently found out about
image-dired, so I'm playing around with it and trying to get it to work. It seems to mostly work, but when I
image-dired into a directory (we'll call it
~/Documents/Images) that has a handful of images it only shows the thumbnail for the first image in the directory, and in the minibuffer returns the error:
error in process sentinel: Wrong type argument: processp, [nil 24302 41099 85815 nil image-dired-thumb-queue-run nil nil 0]
What I've done so far: after reading this, I thought that maybe my problem could be triggered by not having
imagemagick installed. However, after installing it (which was a pain) and confirming that emacs can see
imagemagick by testing
M-! convert, I get the same behavior. I've found (what I think is) the source code for
image-dired here, and I can see that there is a function called
image-dired-thumb-queue-run, but I don't know enough lisp to know what it's doing or if it's the function causing my problems.
- What is causing my error?
- How can I get normal behavior from
image-dired? (i.e., display all thumbnails for a given directory)
Notes: I'm using Emacs 26.3 (with built-in image-dired) on Mac OS Catalina.
