Code:
$ seejpeg pix.jpeg                                        
svgalib: Cannot open /dev/mem
Are you running this program as root or suid-root?
I seems you can't use it when you are not root. Never got this kind of problem with fbida, which can moreover read pdfs in console.

That's said, feh is indeed a great (Xlib) image viewer.

Besides its high quality in rendering and convenience as image viewer, it can be used for setting backgroung wallpapers. If you go with some window manager, there are small chances you wouldn't build and install it.

On the Plasma side of things there are also KuickShow and ShowImage. None of them are included in the base Slackware but their compilation is a snap.

You don't need feh to set the background, you can use wmsetbg for that (part of the windowmaker package).

Also, imagemagick includes "display" which is a very good image viewer for X.

efivar-20191015_ca85d51 has a regression which prevents efibootmgr from installing on UEFI eMMC devices (such as Mini PCs and embedded boards).

If I'm not mistaken, PyQt5 needs to be in the same version as Qt5.
