image viewer question


I'm looking for an image viewer in the Linux world which has the ability to page forward and backward through all supported image files in a directory using single keystrokes. Does anyone know of such a utility?

None of the viewers I've tried has this capability. In the Windows world, ACDSee has had it for years.

Thank you.

I don't know if this has the ability to page through images in a dir, but I think it's one of the best image viewers around: kview. Should come as a standard part of KDE. If you load up your favourite file-manager/browser, and load all of the files in a given dir into kview, then you can use the PageUp/Down buttons to flick through. Also, very handily it has a 'full screen' view that stretches the images to the screen, but doesn't lose the aspect ratio.

I was looking for the exact same thing, and I found GQview. The thing I missed about ACDSee was the ability to use the mouse wheel to move between pictures. GQview filled the whole that ACDSee left in my heart .

Kview was the first thing I tried. The "view" is excellent, but the interface requires alltogether too much mouse and dialog for my taste.

I just checked out gkview.
Wow - It looks to be better than ACDSee. I'm impressed. I had it in my distribution all the time and didn't know it. I've run into this problem before - Suse will load utilities but not put any links to them in their menus, so you have to have apriori knowledge to find them - or they'll put a link in some obscure menu twelve levels deep.

Much obliged.

Actually, I did find a link to GKview - but not among the viewers. It was put in "Applications". There doesn't appear to be any easy way to move it down where it belongs (seems like I ought to be able to do it locally as a user and not logon as root and do it for everybody).

"feh" works extremely well for what you described. It has a ton of options available from the command line. Find the options you like and make a shortcut to it using the "CONFIG FILE SYNTAX".

GQview and Gwenview. I like GQView interface better, but the gnone libs have buggy issues with large BMP files. So I have to use Gwenview when paging through screencaptures as BMP, for example. Both are excellent applications, and exactly what you are looking for.

Try Nautilus or Rox-filer if you want something that does thumbnails.

Thank you all.

I've found some excellent viewers I didn't know I had.
