That is why I used the `tr` command... I am not sure if I could achieve the same without?

Yes, it is possible, for example:

find . -type f -iname '*.jpg' -not -iname '*.lzn.*' | sxiv -i

Re: sxiv - Simple image viewer written in C

Doh. Yeah, -i 's the way to go (and in case it's not clear from progandy's example, the criteria for find can be arbitrarily complex, using -not, -or and parentheses to built as complex conditionals as you need)

Re: sxiv - Simple image viewer written in C

Thanks again. I can see it was definitely worth posting here ☺

I really need to study the man pages a bit more to end up with the most simple and fastest command line... I didn't know about the `-i` option of sxiv either.

My final line now is:

find . -type f -iname '*.jpg' -not -iname '*.lzn.*' | sxiv -ifbt

But now I wonder if any kind of sorting could be implemented... most of my file organization is like so:

YYYY/YYYY-MM-DD - <camera> - <text>/<camera>-<roll>-<img-no>.jpg

(I shoot mostly film and use a few different cameras, in case you wonder about "roll" and "camera".)

`find` and `sxiv` don't have a sorting option as far as I can see, so piping the find output through sort would be the only option:

find . -type f -iname '*.jpg' -not -iname '*.lzn.*' | sort | sxiv -ifbt

That works...

I already wrote a little script that allows me to just view images of a certain camera; I think I will expand on that to include displaying images from a certain year.

OK, enough of that, not sure if this is the right place to discuss these kinds of scripts, which are not 100% sxiv related.

Re: sxiv - Simple image viewer written in C

Just out of curiosity: Why does sxiv use it's own cache directory and mechanism for thumbnails, as opposed to what is recommended by freedesktop.org?

I am not complaining... just wondering.

Re: sxiv - Simple image viewer written in C

Hi,

I have a newbie question here.
I cannot get sxiv to open jp2 files.

When I use sxiv in the command line to open jp2 files I get the following:

sxiv: ./Downloads/509893-Color In Business, Science And Industry_jp2/509893-Color In Business, Science And Industry_0425.jp2: Error opening image
sxiv: no more files to display, aborting


thanks

just to check: Did you not use quotes around the file path? If not, try:

sxiv "./Downloads/509893-Color In Business, Science And Industry_jp2/509893-Color In Business, Science And Industry_0425.jp2"

Actually, it looks like sxiv doesn't support jp2 files. You would need to convert the files to another format first to view them with sxiv. For example, you can install imagemagick:

sudo pacman -S imagemagick

And then convert the file with its convert script (note the "jpg" extension in the second argument):

convert "509893-Color In Business, Science And Industry_0425.jp2" "509893-Color In Business, Science And Industry_0425.jpg"

And then open the jpg result with sxiv:

sxiv "509893-Color In Business, Science And Industry_0425.jpg"

'hope that helps!
