Thats not gnome dependent, (eog / gthumb)
thats not a photo manager (digikam / F-Spot / Picasa)
thats not, well, gwenview (I hate the new UI)
thats not strictly command line driven (feh)
thats not primarly an editer (gimp)
thats not mono dependent
thats not stopped development 2 years ago.

You're too picky. I was going to recommend xloadimage, but since it doesn't provide a graphical front-end, and I can't determine how recently it's been updated (what image formats are newer than 2 years, anyway?), I can't really recommend it.

You could always use Firefox or another web browser. Not the best image viewer, but browsers are the only things I can think of that fit your criteria.

Failing that, I'd recommend Gimp. It doesn't fit your criteri but it's the best image viewer I know of. Does a great job with interpolations for resizing, has a pretty catchy unsharp mask - what photo doesn't need a little editing, right ? ; )

Good Luck!

I use Geeqie, but it seems to be sort of a simple manager. I only browse into my Pictures/.

Geeqie is a very nice gtk image viewer.

It's slightly buggy (never crashed on me though), but it's got some great features hidden in the menus.

Wow! Thanks!!! Didn't know I had so many choices. Going to try geeqie / gpicview / mirage to see which one I like best.

One year old topic... Anyway.

IMHO - too many "that is not" but I see no "that IS" ;)

Some time ago I had search fastest image viewer. Actually photo viewer. The difference is photo have high resolution. My habit to use lightning fast manual slideshow when I browse my photos. I hate thumbnails. I hate photo management software at all. I found two options: Gwenview->OpenGLviewer and feh. Last I prefer better. It is in fact slightly slower than Gwen/OpenGL in slideshow but have decent handicap in startup time so in overall it seems faster for me.

PS. I understand my answer did not fit topic but it can be helpful for people who has come here from google :)
By the way this is my first post on gentoo forum.
And I am very green novice as gentoo user. About one week as I install gentoo (stage3 of course). But I fall in love to it! Just amazing after years of use openSuSE. I never thought bloated KDE can fly!

Your desktop can properly associate file types with an image viewer, after that you can just press the file name. Personally I use xfce4 with feh bound to the image file types.
This is a quite lightweight solution, but I like it. My Linux Desktop (laptop) computer is a bit old. It is a core2 .. hey at least it's not an i386 :-).
I just searched for image viewers as I just set up my laptop for scanning. Windows 10 wants new hardware, so my newer laptop kinda backed up (which means i am considering virtualsing Windows on Linux on that machine once again).
Anyway, if you are nor looking for a photo viewer but still something stronger (but still not a media player), I would suggest combining things, or maybe you should ask again saying what you want. I would suggest that you try to expand (by adding features, specify options) or change your file manager. You might look into thumbnail file managers (I should look into Thundar myself ;) ).

Might not be a lot of help, just a bit of pointers. You might know what you want, but making a list of what you dont doesn't help a lot :) But that is what most people do. I do it a lot myself . Hehe .

"New UI"? Maybe I'm blind that I don't care for some fresh looking icons, but if you like the old ones, oxygen theme is still there...

At the time that was posted, Oxygen *was* new UI...

I use Atril and Viewnior.

Viewnior allows the use of the mouse wheel to magnify the image.

There it is viewnior... Some one mentioned it. I usually use Xfce or Enlightenment as my environments in Linux.

I always grab viewnior. It's light and fast and works well. Like the original poster or is that postee?

I also chose it because it didn't seem to have a bunch of extra dependencies etc that I didn't want or see the need for.

Especially Gnome stuff.

PhotoQt maybe?
It's the only image viewer I know that can show animated GIFs properly.
It has some minor annoyances, you might have to configure it so suit your needs.
E.g. I wasn't able to bind some keys properly, but editing the config file manually did it for me.
It has no fine grained zoom (at least I wasn't able to configure the intervals/ratio).
If images have the wrong file name ending, it can't show it, but it tells you that the pic couldn't be opened.

In that case, I'll chime in too and suggest just using java. It's maybe a one-hour project stringing together the classes necessary and you end up with a fairly decent image viewer that's easily customized and will run on almost anything AND it was a viable solution seven years ago as well.
