I dont really like Eye of Gnome (EOG).
What other image viewers are available for Ubuntu?
I am using
gwenview but it takes a long time to load.

I particularly like Viewnior. It's a very lightweight and fast image viewer - faster than any of the alternatives I've tried:
Ubuntu 14.10 and up
As of Ubuntu 14.10 Viewnior is now part of the official Ubuntu repositories. You can install it from the Software Centre or by running the following command:
sudo apt-get install viewnior
Earlier Ubuntu releases
A third-party PPA for Viewnior is now available. Before proceeding with the installation please make sure to read the following Q&As on PPAs and their potential dangers:
If you are confident with adding a third-party PPA you can install Viewnior by using the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:desdelinux/viewnior sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install viewnior
Alternatively you can compile Viewnior from source:
git clone https://github.com/xsisqox/Viewnior.git cd Viewnior ./autogen.sh ./configure make sudo apt-get install checkinstall sudo checkinstall
Instead of using checkinstall to generate a debian package and install it via the package manager you can just as well run
make install. With this method you won't be able to manage your installation from the package manager, though.
gThumb is an advanced image viewer and browser. It has many useful features, such as filesystem browsing, slide show, image catalogs, web album creation, camera import, image CD burning, batch file operations and quick image editing features like transformation and color manipulation.
It's designed for GNOME desktop environment and uses its platform. For camera import feature, the gPhoto2 library is used.
sudo apt-get install gthumb
The best one XNVIEW MP is missing. It is something like Faststone image viewer for Windows. 26 Mb size, lots of options, and you can convert formats as well.
It is not in the software center, but you can download it from the official site and open it with the software center. Easy.
You can try either GIMP, or Shotwell Photo Manager. To install GIMP, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:
sudo apt-get install gimp
And for Shotwell Photo Manager,
sudo apt-get install shotwell
Or just click the images below
is pretty lightweight and simple, but still has renaming, resizing, cropping and especially to me an essential thing, the status bar. I'm not sure if is reading EXIF data, but it does not seem to rotate the images based on EXIF orientation information.
sudo apt-get install mirage
At the time of writing this, there's a newer version in a 3rd party PPA (1.0 vs. 0.9.5.1), but at least on my 14.04 Cinnamon installation there was an issue with not remembering the last window size, which is not present in the older version.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vexo/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mirage
You can use fbi to view all pictures in folder with loop option:
sudo apt-get install fbi
fbi -noverbose -a -u -t 5 /home/User/Desktop/Wallpapers/* -T 1
