Great image viewer, only one problem
like many other posters, I have tried others, but GQView is definitely the best. I've used it on all kinds of linux machines, even older boxes, with no real problems.
The only problem I have with it is when browsing large collections over a network share on a slower link (11Mbps wireless). When opening the first image, it takes a really long time to load, since gqview seems to be grabbing something about every image on load. No, I'm not enabling thumbnails. Is there a way to stop this behavior?
definitely a winner
i've tried 'the other viewers' several times now (seems to be roughly an annual ritual) but keep ending up back at gqview -- the straightforward interface and ability to handle a wide variety of image formats are real winners when all you need is a good bitmap viewer...
the gtk2 version of gqview has become a lot faster compared to the gtk1 one. i always loved gqview as an image-viewer but found it way too slow. But the gtk2 version rocks. :)
a great piece of software :o]
i just installed version 1.4.1 (via my distributions package-management) some minutes ago and i was completely surprised and satisfied. coming from gimageview which had some limitation in handling for me - gqview is really great, the way i like it
File names display in thumbnail view
I've just downloaded and installed GQView 1.34. I
must say that it is the fastest, most stable and
complete open source image viewer package I
have tried. (Other image viewers I have tried
include gwenview, showimg, gthumb, imgseek,
However, it is very pity that file names are not
displayed in thumbnail (or icon) view as oppose to

I agree, this is the best image viewing tool on the market. I have am inpressed by its speed and ease of use. Thanks for your efforts!!!
add normal keybindis
For Viewing Images this programs is good enough, but keybindigs are strange. V - full screen, why not "F".
Adding some conversion to files will be very helpful
I found GQview by accident while browsing the apps of my new rh8 install. Very pleasant surprise!
The only thing I wished it had was a batch renaming function! Had renaming a 100 photos from my digital camera is no fun!
GQview is a great little app!
GQ View is outstanding
GQ View is the best image viewer, proprietary or otherwise, I've run across. That title
was previously held by Compupic, a proprietary product. It's feature-completeness is
excellent and the speed is quite good, even on my aging dual PPro 180 machine.
The only features I could ask for that it doesn't already have are:
1) The ability to auto-generate a W3C-compliant HTML 4.0 image/thumbnail page. I know
many things already do this and do it well, but having a 1-click feature for that in GQ View
would just be really convenient.
2) Option to put a .thumbnails directory in each photo directory.
I rated it a 9/10. It does what it does better than anything I've used, and the features above
would make it a 10 for me. If those aren't important to you, it's probably going to be a 10 for you.

This is my image viewer of choice. I was dismayed to find that development slowed for quite some time, but I continued to use the development version.
Now I've stumbled across a release. Excellent!
