Subject description: Gimageviex can mix video and pictures
 

Quote some opinions about Gimageview :
gimageview is a really nice image viewer that handles just about anything thrown at it. Including video. It can also do slideshows with images and video mixed which is why I like to use it at trade shows and family reunions and stuff. To my knowledge this possibly is the *only* linux app that does this. I've looked a lot and haven't found any others. Anyone who has used irfanview in windows and wished for it in linux can probably appreciate gimageview as a replacement for it.
Anyways this Image viewer is for Gtk but works fine on puppy 3.0.1
It Can even watch movies with xine-libs which just about everyone has, Plus take images from the movies, Kind of neat, In the menu it does say redhat etc, lol
But hey its small and works fine for viewing images, thumbnails

it works fine, only bad thing is sometimes is a bit slow

Thanks for this recommendation. I've added to the wiki http://puppylinux.org/wikka/GImageView

I too was a fan of Irfanview.

I've found a package from the puppy4 repo that runs on Slacko 5.3.1
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/gimageview-0.2.27-1.pet

It seems to crash sometimes in when flicking through images.

How did you install and which version is it?

It looks like development has finished on it?

BTW there is a program that allows you to script a slideshow-

What is the "2009" version? Is it from https://github.com/ashie/gimageview/?

0.2.27 is from 2004 and a bunch of crashes are supposed to be fixed in the github version (and also the old patches some distros used to use).

Another lightweight old GTK program that does this (if you have Mplayer) is called Pornview. It was renamed to "Proview" last time I saw it packaged for Puppy. That package was a static GTK1.2 build I think, but it can also be built with GTK2.

I'd like to compile the version from github, but the zip download has a configure.ac file instead of configure. Also it has no make.in files.

Don't how I can I compile this version?

top level ls from github (gimageview-master):

Code:

ABOUT-NLS   configure.ac  gimageview.spec.in  Makefile.am  README
AUTHORS     COPYING       INSTALL             NEWS         src
autogen.sh  doc           lib                 plugins      TODO
ChangeLog   etc           m4                  po


top level ls from old sourgeforge version (gimageview-0.2.27):

Code:
ABOUT-NLS     config.sub       gimageview.spec.in   lib            plugins
acconfig.h    configure        HACKING              ltmain.sh      po
aclocal.m4    configure.in     INSTALL              m4             README
AUTHORS       COPYING          install-sh           Makefile.am    src
autogen.sh    depcomp          intl                 Makefile.in    TODO
ChangeLog     doc              intltool-extract.in  missing
config.guess  etc              intltool-merge.in    mkinstalldirs
config.h.in   gimageview.spec  intltool-update.in   NEWS

Run `./autogen.sh` in that top level directory.
Just running `autoreconf` might also work Wink

Slacko 5.5 runs gimageview without any bug, it has dependencies needing to be installed.

There is a version in the Debian Lenny repos here which seems quite stable and seems to be the last Debian version.
