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:
Reversed orientation of zoom-in/zoom-out buttons following suggestion by Scott Horrowitz.
Changed the Makefile so that the "debug" version compiles without additional CFLAGS on gentoo.
Stop using /dev/null when there is no file to load and don't confuse the user with an error-like message, just show a blank screen.
Give error message only when a file was recognized to be an image but fails to load.
Give visual feedback to keypresses (ie: activate corresponding buttons)
Attempt at preventing crash when gimmage is not in user's $PATH. -Pressing escape quits gimmage.
