Hello all.

Nobody has mentioned fotoxx yet??!!
https://kornelix.net/fotoxx/fotoxx.html

With this one, you can send IrfanView back to bed!

It should be available through your PPM. If not, the source for the latest
stable version as of this writing, fotoxx-18.07.1, is available from:
https://kornelix.net/downloads/downloads.html
(Please read the notes about compiling it carefully.)

BFN.

Wasn't that included with Puppy 4.3.1? (Then again, I was using a non-standard version of 4.3.1.) I vaguely remember trying it on 4.3.1 a long time ago and not liking it as much.

In general, though probably IrfanView, too.

After looking through my 4.3.1 savefile (on this system), and my archive of .pet/etc. files, I think I installed it briefly. I have a .pet for fotoxx, v8.3, downloaded in September 2009. Which, yeah, is probably very different from v18.07.1 (the current version). Smile

Hi makoto.

Yeah, quite different.

The old version of fotoxx created sort of a cross design :
the dir of pictures being presented horizontally and
the picture viewed, vertically.

This one (at least the v. 17 that I have) stays in the same window (more
or less, depending on the size of the picture) with the main menu and
submenus on the left.

To be frank, it is even less intuitive than the old version. But wow!, the
number of features this new version has!!! You almost do not need an
image editor such as mtpaint with this version of fotoxx.

As I said, this new version of fotoxx really sends IrfanView to bed.

BFN.

I'll admit I need a simple viewer more than an image-processing suite. Smile (Hasn't stopped me from using suites in the past, but they all had decent simple-viewer capability.)

That said, I tried the version of fotoxx that I could find in PPM (v12.01.2), and yeah, it did seem a bit unintuitive. The GUI looked coarsely-drawn (reminding me of the older XNView Linux version), and it required me to download another dependency on startup (which PPM didn't know about, apparently).

I didn't like having to select a gallery directory to sync on startup... pointed it to the folder where all my images are located. It scanned them, generated thumbnails, and then... sat there. (Another instance of being unintuitive - you'd think the program would automatically display the root folder of the gallery in the main window, or something like that, once it's done cataloging the images from the folder(s).)

I'm hoping the newest version's quite a bit better, since there's another major version jump, but I was feeling too lazy to compile fotoxx and the chain of dependencies. Embarassed Mr. Green

Morning, all.

Ooh, this is a hard one. Image viewers are an incredibly personal choice; no two individuals are going to have the same requirements, or wish to do things the same way. What seems intuitive to one, seems clumsy (and clunky) to someone else.....

I guess serious users of such apps would wish to have ease of access to whatever file they want to view; ease of manipulation of said file.....and ease in the way in which you can send said file to your favourite editing program (preferably open, and immediately ready to work on).

Some want all the bells & whistles, along with a slick, professional-looking interface. Some are happy with a very plain interface, being more concerned with how it actually functions.... We all tend to recommend the apps with which we're most familiar (usually through long use), forgetting that they may not suit somebody else.....though in all honesty, it's all you really can do. The choice has to be made by the individual, basically via experimentation; try it out, see if ya like it. If not.....try summat else.

The same advice goes for any app. (I've long since given up recommending my favourite browser, Chrome; some folks loathe it with a passion bordering on hatred.) The packages are there; the choice, well.......

I'd never tried Geeqie before, I must admit. Having done so, I rather like it...

Of course (unlike Viewnior) this is a pure image viewer; won't play GIF files, for instance. That fact notwithstanding, it's a nice, lightweight viewer, and surprisingly easy to get the hang of.

For anyone who's interested, I tracked down the appropriate files at old-releases.ubuntu.com, and have run up a package for Precise and Raring. You can find it at my G-Drive, here:-

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1isAGtiJ4RPLU84-I3zNZth3DEneFY3-O/view?usp=sharing

Enjoy.

------------------------

As for fotoxx, we-e-ell; I'm not keen on its image management, it's true (it's another one, like Shotwell, that wants to be in sole charge of all your images).....but it has one feature I make quite frequent use of; the 'Warp' function, under the 'Transform' Menu. You can achieve some very interesting effects with this..!

Hi, Puppy_Apprentice.

Nice find!

Please find attached your firefox script with your by-line (you are too
humble a person, yes?! Smile ), the date and the reference to your post
above.

# /root/my-applications/bin/firefox-picture-viewer.sh

firefox index.html

Plus a screen capture in seamonkey. I didn't touch your code. The only
thing I had to do is make a full (non-relative) symlink from the
seamonkey executable to /usr/bin/firefox.

Now, if the user wishes to edit the image shown in the main panel in
firefox, is there a way (s)he can send or transfer this image to an image
editor? Or this is only a viewer? (Which is quite ok too.)

I'm afraid only this is possible:

Hi, Puppy_Apprentice.

You sure you are an "apprentice" ?! Smile
Nice cat you have! Smile

But seriously:
I'm out of luck. Seamonkey does not give me the options "Copy picture
link to". And the old opera 12.16 refuses to load file index.html...

In seamonkey, do you or anybody know how I could add this "Copy
picture link to"? Seamonkey offers a "send to", but to its mail component.
TIA.

BFN.

Maybe you have Copy Image or Copy URL or something with URL/address/link in option name when you click on picture RMB. Link to picture will be stored in Clipboard.

But to send something to editor you have later click on Yad icon which take address from clipboard and open it with chosen program.

Here you have work-around:

Hello again, Puppy_Apprentice.

I got it working in the old opera with the following changes:
line 22 --
Code:
defaultbrowser $PWD/index.html & # but browser should know frames
I had to specify $PWD/index.html as a precaution, because my Opera is
not in the path, and it does not know where to look otherwise.

lines 31-38 --
Code:
    gxmessage -name "Send to..." -nearmouse -buttons "mtPaint:42,PeasyPrint:255" "${clip:16}"

    case $? in
       42) mtpaint "${clip:16}";;
      255) peasyprint "${clip:16}";;

        *) echo "Operation Canceled" # or empty
    esac
"file://localhost" has 16 characters, not 7. Cutting at 7 chars, mtpaint does
not know how to interpret the "localhost" part.

Also, I think it would need an exit button as well, and / or or some way to
close the yad tray icon -- on the icon -- once we have finished. Because,
as it is, it stays there forever; I had to run < killall yad > to get rid of it.

A zip file with my edits is attached. Please feel free to do what you want
with them. I will do a 2nd test with SeaMonkey.
