gimmage is an image viewer that is perfect for command line usage as it accepts directories and image filenames as arguments.
It has an in-application file browser that allows users to select and drag images and directories into the image viewing area in order to have them displayed.
· drag scrolling with the mouse is quite quirky, I'll have to look into that sometime!
· scrolling with the arrow keys does not work, use the number keypad instead
· zooming uses a very innefficient method and it looks rather strange when the image is recentered after zooming in or out
· the program will probably not be able to open files with non-european characters in their filename
in the extraction directory do:
this will compile and install in /usr/bin and /usr/share/gimmage alternatively you can do:
sh make.sh -DLOCAL
for a version which will be runnable from the extraction directory or
sh make.sh -DDEBUG
or any combination thereof for the debugging version, just add any CFLAGS that you want to have added
NOTE: if you do not have sudo installed or configured, you will have to manually copy gimmage to /usr/bin and change it's permissions and copy the icons directory to /usr/share/gimmage
What's New in This Release:
· This is probably the final release in the current stable branch before the 0.3.0 release which will include printing support and hopefully a fixed filechooser widget.
· It brings a couple of important usability improvements, an image preview and solves a couple of drag scrolling issues.
· It also adds support for scrolling with the arrow keys.
