The GPicview image viewer is installed from IGEL Universal Desktop Linux 5.06.100.

Applications such as the Firefox browser or the file manager use the image viewer as an auxiliary application. The image viewer does not have a menu entry for opening it directly.

The image viewer can be used to view a wide range of graphic MIME types:

  • image/bmp
  • image/gif
  • image/jpeg
  • image/jpg
  • image/png
  • image/x-bmp
  • image/x-pcx
  • image/x-tga
  • image/x-portable-pixmap
  • image/x-portable-bitmap
  • image/x-targa
  • image/x-portable-greymap
  • application/pcx
  • image/svg+xml
  • image/svg-xml

    An entry in the FAQ explains how you can change the way in which they are assigned: Adding or Changing a MIME Type Handler.


    Instructions for using the image viewer can be found on the Ubuntu Users website.
