I would like to view the images for example from the oldest until the newest. This is not possible with many viewers I tried (Mirage, Shotwell, Gnome Image Viewer).

  • @hakermania Could you please help me improve the title? Which part exactly is wrong? – Martin Drozdik Sep 1 '14 at 17:17
  • My bad, I read folder instead of order. – hytromo Sep 1 '14 at 17:39


This is probably the best image viewer available at the moment. Built for KDE4, Gwenview comes with support for virtually all image formats out there, tools to do basic editing, tree-like file browser, support for tags, thumbnail previews, cropping, image rating system, slideshow, fullscreen mode, support for plugins and two view modes (Browse and View).

lets go to install and use it:

sudo apt-get install gwenview

Now Select your images and right-click on and choice "Open With" ► "Gwenview"

enter image description here

Gwenview GUI is opening, then Select "Sort By" ► "Date" under View menu

enter image description here

Now your added images are sorted by date, just go to View menu and select "Start Slideshow"

Note don't forget before "Start Slideshow" you should select all added images in Gwenview window to select to show in "Slide show" mode. cool!

Also here are a lot of Ubuntu Photo Slide Show software.

  • Thank you! This is it. Too bad the settings do not permit to control the time interval between transitions. – Martin Drozdik Sep 2 '14 at 22:25
  • Can you open several folders in it and maintain the order of images according to folder order? – Sunspawn Dec 16 '15 at 19:23
