The other day I finally upgraded from 15.04 to 15.10. I've opened up an image today using Image Viewer (eog version 3.16.3) and found that the button to scale 1:1 or 100% (don't remember what it was exactly) has gone.

I've tried:

  • View menu - I checked the help, apparently there should be "View > Normal size" but I could not find it. The options I have are:
    • Statusbar
    • Image Gallery
    • Side Panel
    • Zoom In
    • Zoom Out
    • Best Fit
    • Fullscreen
    • Slide Show
  • Editing the toolbar - again, I looked at the help which suggests I should be able to edit the toolbar, but I can find no such options
  • Preferences, looking for any option to enable more buttons / zoom options
  • I can zoom in/out using the slider. So I can either:
    • Manually drag to 100% - very fiddly!
    • Zoom in to 300% then right click on the slider two times (-100% each time) - really clunky
  • I've enabled Image Gallery to look for options (nothing obvious)
  • I've enabled Side Panel to look for options (again, nothing obvious)

Has the option been removed? Or maybe something broke in the upgrade? Any suggestions to get this 100% zoom button back would be greatly appreciated - I used it a lot to view images... at 100% zoom :)

  • I would've loved to include an image here to show what I mean, but because I don't have enough reputation, I can't provide as much information as I'd like. Which seems very counter-intuitive. So apologies, I can't embed an image or provide more than 2 links, so here is the image – Asgrim Mar 17 '16 at 10:21
  • This post has several answers and hinted the button is missing forever in Ubuntu 16.04. I suppose the button is already missing from 15.10 release. – clearkimura Oct 19 '16 at 9:09

You can still jump to 100% via the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+0
