Image viewers in Linux


How to conveniently view a directory of pictures in Linux? Is there an app
that shows pictures in full screen mode?

While in WIndows, I always use Irfan View to view the pictures. That free
software allows you to view a directory of pictures in a slideshow, that too
in a full screen mode.

Are there any user friendly Linux Image viewer apps?

There are a bunch. You can do a google search and find a lot, or go over to www.tucows.com or www.icewalkers.com

konqueror works great. I use ee (Electric Eyes) for quick use.

It all depends on what you are looking to achieve, if it's just viewing the pictures and that's it, something like a slide-show type of program:
{I removed this link, didn't realize the program was OS specific...}

Also, here's some really interesting looking ones I browsed over at www.freshmeat.net:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/gqview/
http://freshmeat.net/projects/endeavour2/
http://freshmeat.net/projects/pornview/
http://freshmeat.net/projects/quickimageviewer/

And one of the most promising looking ones besides gqview:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/gwenview/

Cool

gqview has the ability to scroll through the pictures with a wheel mouse or by clicking on the picture. Especially if you are looking through non-descript names like dsc0028.jpg and the like, scrolling quickly is a must. gqview also gives you a thumbnail pane to quickly find what you are looking for. it's the most like ACDSee.. which is my favorite %$ndows viewer. (pardon my language)

if you use KDE quite a bit then id suggest Imagick or PixiePlus, they are found: www.mosfet.org

theyr pretty cool applications (imagick is command line for resizing, converting etc images) pixieplus you can do a lot more than just viewing.

One of the nice things about gqview is the ability to simply right click on an image and choose "edit with" and it lists some programs, one being The Gimp.

Cool
