Is there any image viewer for ubuntu that is similar to the windows 7 image viewer? or at least one that can be customized in a way that gets similar to the windows 7 one.

I've placed a vid here at the other Thread

https://www.linux.org/threads/help-with-gwenview.25693/post-78075

... which details the glitch with Gwenview.

Actually, @XStein17 , I am curious as to how you have Gwenview in the first place, did you install it?

Or are you on Kubuntu, not Ubuntu?

Default Image Viewer for Ubuntu 19.10 'Eoan Ermine' if you are using the GNOME DE (Desktop Interface) is literally

Image Viewer.

There are additional choices if you right click an image to open with, perhaps

Eye of MATE Image Viewer
Shotwell Image Viewer (has some handy tools)
GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program
Firefox itself
and perhaps Eye of GNOME Viewer

So what gives?

Also, if using the link Arochester provided (nice link), the author makes a typo with one (1) Viewer -

KPhotoAlbum

He says

sudo apt kphotoalbum
to install, should be

sudo apt install kphotoalbum

Cheers

Gwenview is available on Ubuntu Software. I didn't like the default image viewer, I am looking for an image viewer like the windows 7 one to read comics cause that's the one I'm used to read with. Gwenview was the only one I could customize in a way I like, but that thing is bothering me and it is the only thing that can't be edited, if it weren't for that Gwenview would be perfect for me.

Ok nailed it. The feature is called "birdeyeview". Now I have to add a nice checkbox to the config panel and I'm done. I'll give you a link to a amd64 packet and make a pull request on the project. It will probably be integrated in a future release.

Thank you so much!!!! I'll be waiting for it.

Julien, does @XStein17 (or others) need to remove the existing GwenView first, before unpackaging the .deb file?

Nope. Installing an already installed package with dpkg will trigger current package uninstall script and will proceed to install the new version.

I'm working on submitting a proper diff to the project, but KDE has some strange way to handle things.
