How to view .png file on Linux VM (Fedora/RHEL) running on Windows 7 host?


I want to open .png file on my VirtualBox Fedora VM running on Windows 7 host? Is there a way to view the file using command line?

Note: I have tried `display ####.png` as well as `less ####.png`. Installed ImageMagick and have libpng version 1.5.9 successfully installed over my VM.
