sxiv - Simple X Image Viewer

It's not in our repositories. So source here we go.

Clone all the files from here.

Extra where every you want to. I just do every thing in my Download Folder.

sxiv-master

Before you run make and sudo make install. We need some dependencies. Just the Devel tools of these. I had the main packages install. If you don't then also download the main packages as well.

Imlib2, libexif, giflib (devel) Make sure it's the -devel packages.

Then

make

sudo make install

There you go. Better then feh I think.

Here is the YouTube video, to show you how it works. Plus a bonus. How to get this to work in ranger.
