Projects / fbi


fbi is an image viewer which displays images on Linux framebuffer devices. It can read PhotoCDs, jpeg, and ppm directly. For other formats it tries to use some external converter like convert from the ImageMagick package.

            Well, nice small program. I have been really looking forward to finding such a program.
            Not so many features as zgv, but unlike the latter, fbi doesn't flash heavily my screen :-) Good one, I like it.
