Slow Image Viewers


Hello!
I am with Mandrake 10.0 Official with KDE and I've been with Linux over six months now. Most of the first steps I have done myself, but I have no idea how to solve this.

I have tried several image viewer programs like gthumb, gqview, xnview, flphoto... I tried both installing them from an RPM as well as compiling them from the source. Each of them appears to be quite slow, openning an average 1Mb JPEG from 3 to 20 seconds. When I boot win$, ASDSee opens these files immediatelly, without any noticeable delay. I cannot believe that win$ could be faster than Linux.

My machine is not a beast - Duron 700MHz only, but other applications work quite well, including video players like totem or mplayer.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Opening Gnome apps in KDE will take longer than opening them in Gnome.
In KDE Kuickshow and Kview open images fast enough. Those would have installed by default with KDE I think.

Thank you for your replies.

Unfortunately, I have tried all Kuickshow, Kview and Showimg, tried using GNOME as well, but performance was not any better. GThumb seems to be the least annoying so far :-(.

Thanks very much for your replies anyway.
