FAST Image Viewer @ Ubuntu

FAST Image Viewer @ Ubuntu. :: I noticed that the default image viewer on Ubuntu, eog (eye of gnome), is really slow on big files (> 10 MB). It's really, really painful when you need to sort & process hundreds of these.

Looking around, I got loads of recommendation for Viewnior.

However, it doesn't provide packages for Ubuntu, and it won't compile due to its dependency to GTK2.

So after a bit more googling, I found the solution here : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1608748&p=10045733#post10045733

Or just copy-paste these lines, one by one :

sudo su –

echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/xsisqox/ppa/ubuntu lucid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get update

apt-get install viewnior

And voila ! Viewnior is now installed 🙂

If you have been struggling with accesing big image files, hope you'll find this little trick useful.

And yes, Viewnior is indeed fast 🙂 excellent stuff !
