Re: [SOLVED] fastest image viewer?

It's in AUR: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=12872

As you haven't used AUR before, I recommend you reading http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR

edit: fixed link

Re: [SOLVED] fastest image viewer?

I like gqview. May not be the fastest, but it's fast enough (for me).

Like many GTK applications you can basically remove everything off of the screen and just have a frame with your images (controllable with the mouse). Very nice indeed.

Re: [SOLVED] fastest image viewer?

GQView is nice for browsing directories of images, which is usually what I want to do.  It's been a standard app for me for quite some time.

Re: [SOLVED] fastest image viewer?

Here's my list of fast image viewers and I can't really decide which one I prefer. I didn't actually time them and I've included some that need/integrate with DE's that are probably slower if only because of that:

feh
qiv
xzgv
views(SDL)
gqview(gtk)
mirage(gtk)
qvv(qt)
gwenview(kde)
digikam(kde)
pixieplus(kde)
eog(gnome)

there are some that have been mentioned, but also new ones. (I didn't try to fit qvv to the new qt situation yet, nor to finish the views PKGBUILD that I have in the making for some time already.)

There's also "display" -- part of the imagemagick utilities ... it's not blindingly fast, though.
