I need an image viewer to help me see the XY coordinates inside an image (mouse cursor position relative to top left corner of the image). Could somebody please recommend me one?

GIMP will do this.

sudo apt-get install gimp

The GIMP is not a "viewer" but an "image manipulation program" (an editor) but yes, it will do the work perfectly. If you need to use the gimp just to watch, simply hit the "TAB" key (above CAPS LOCK) in order to hide the toolbars. Thanks for sharing and good luck! –  Geppettvs D'Constanzo May 22 '13 at 23:48
    
I wouldn't recommend using the GIMP as an image viewer because it needs a long time to load. –  FSMaxB May 23 '13 at 16:03
    
Yes, I was thinking of something as lightweight like IrfanView on Windows. But then I think I'm gonna write one myself using python. :) –  3k- Jun 9 '13 at 15:02
