GPicView is the standard picture viewer of LXDE. GPicView features lightning fast startup and an intuitive interface.


  • Extremely lightweight and fast with low memory usage
  • Very suitable for default image viewer of a desktop system
  • Simple and intuitive interface
  • Minimal lib dependency: Only pure GTK+ is used
  • Desktop independent: Doesn't require any specific desktop environment
  • Open source, licensed under GNU GPL


  • How to set GPicView to default image viewer:
xdg-mime default gpicview.desktop `grep 'MimeType=' /usr/share/applications/gpicview.desktop | sed -e 's/.*=//' -e 's/;/ /g'`

Note: xdg-utils is needed here. It's a tool released by the Portland project of Most modern Linux distros have this tool installed by default.
