Image viewer?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I need a recommendation on an image viewer in Arch Linux. Right now I have no means of viewing images, so what do you use? I'm not looking for image manipulation, just viewing like when you right-click something in Windows and hit Preview.

I suppose I may end up needing an image manipulator as well, so I guess some recommendations on one of those wouldn't hurt. Yes I know about Gimp, but last I checked its interface was awful.

I use Feh personally.

gimp is an editor, not a viewer. I also vote for feh

Feh is pretty nice.
Viewnoir is what I use for people who can't get used to feh...

I use Gwenview which -despite what the name might suggest- is a KDE app rather than GNOME. Not really sure it would be any good for you though as if you don't already have KDE installed then Gwenview might come with ~200MB of dependencies (namely KDE).

Gwenview is pretty nice though. Does slideshows, rotation, folder views, etc. But still very basic in layout and quick loading. Not sure how that compares to Feh though as never used that.

Feh seems to be exactly what I was looking for, thanks guys. I guess I forgot to mention that I do not have Gnome or KDE installed, so that does rule out Gwenview.

How about editors? Anything out there similar to Paint.NET on Windows?

isn't that a vector drawing program rather than bitmap like Paint.net? Or am I thinking of something else?

I don't think linux has any decent bitmap drawing suites that are at the same intermediate level as Paint.net. However I'd love to be proved wrong.
