SYNOPSISqiv [options] file ...
DESCRIPTIONqiv is an image viewer developed with gdk/imlib. As a result, qiv is faster than traditional image viewers such as xv or xli.
- -h, --help
- Print out a brief help message.
- --display disp
- Open qiv window on display disp.
- -F, --file file | stdin
- Read file names from file or stdin, one name per line. This option can be specified multiple times to read from several files, and will not affect other file names passed on the command-line.
- -u, --recursivedir
- Change the behavior of qiv to recursively descend into the directories given on the command line.
- -L, --followlinks
- With --recursivedir, this allows a symlink to point to a directory. This is useful for organizing photo dirs into categories, but it is up to you to ensure that there are no symlink loops that would cause an infinite scan.
- -e, --center
- Disable window centering.
- -w, --fixed_width x
- Window with fixed width x.
- -W, --fixed_zoom x.
- Window with fixed zoom factor (percentage x).
- -x, --root file
- Set file as the current desktop background (centered) and exit.
- -y, --root_t file
- Set file as the current desktop background (tiled) and exit.
- -z, --root_s file
- Set file as the current desktop background (stretched) and exit.
- -m, --maxpect
- Expand image(s) to fit screen size while preserving aspect ratio.
- -t, --scale_down
- Shrink image(s) which are larger than screen size to fit.
- -b, --brightness x
- Set brightness to x (-32..32).
- -c, --contrast x
- Set contrast to x (-32..32).
- -g, --gamma x
- Set gamma to x (-32..32).
- -n, --no_filter
- Disable filtering of images by extension. Normally, qiv will only load images with an image extension such as .jpg, .png, .gif ... This option lets you load any file as an image.
- -i, --no_statusbar
- Disable statusbar.
- -I, --statusbar
- Enable statusbar.
- -p, --transparency
- Enable transparency for transparent images.
- -a, --do_grab
- Grab the pointer in windowed mode.
- -G, --disable_grab
- Disable grabbing the pointer/kbd in fullscreen mode. Useful e.g. if qiv displays images on a display other than where it was invoked from. Use with caution!
- -v, --version
- Print version information.
- -o, --bg_color x
- Set root background color to named color x or 24 bit hex RGB triple in the format #RRGGBB.
- -C, --cycle
- Change cycle behaviour. qiv will exit after last picture has been shown.
- -s, --slide
- Start slideshow immediately. This can also be used for the desktop background (x/y/z).
- -r, --random
- Randomize slideshow.
- -R, --readonly
- Disable the deletion feature.
- -S, --shuffle
- Shuffle images (random order with next/previous functionality).
- -d, --delay x
- Set slideshow delay to x seconds.
- -f, --fullscreen
- Use fullscreen window on start-up.
- -P, --ignore_path_sort
- Sort all the image files by just their filename, ignoring the path.
- -M, --merged_case_sort
- Sort all the image files in merged-case order (AaBbCc...).
- -N, --numeric_sort
- A "smart" numeric sort that attempts to sort filenames with numbers in a logical manner. For instance: 2.jpg sorts before 10.jpg; 1foo.jpg through 10foo.jpg sorts after 1bar.jpg through 15bar.jpg (because "foo" comes after "bar"); and baz0001.jpg through baz0010.jpg sorts after baz01.jpg through baz99.jpg (because the longer group of zero-padded digits indicates that they shouldn't be intermingled).
- -D, --no_sort
- Do not apply any sorting to the list of files.
- -T, --watch
- Reload the image if it has changed on disk.
- -A, --select_dir dir
- Store the selected files in dir (default is .qiv-select).
- -q, --rotate x
- Rotate each image 90(x=1),180(x=2),270(x=3) degrees clockwise. If x=11 or x=13, the 90 or 270 degree rotation is conditional on the image fitting better if rotated. e.g. if the display is wide and a tall image is too tall to fit on the screen, it will be rotated.
- -l, --autorotate
- Autorotate JPEGs according to EXIF rotation tag.
- -X, --xineramascreen x
- Use monitor x as preferred screen
- -Y, --source_profile x
- Use color profile file x as source profile for all images
- -Z, --display_profile x
- Use color profile file x as display profile for all images
- -B, --browse
- This option is useful when configuring qiv to be used with a file manager. qiv will scan the directory of the clicked image and allow you to scroll through those images.
- Enable movement with h/j/k/l, vi-style (HJKL will do what hjkl previously did)

DELETINGqiv doesn't actually delete files. It creates a directory named ".qiv-trash" and moves the images to that directory. qiv maintains the directory structure of your "deleted" images. You can also undelete the most recently trashed images in reverse order, which moves each file back into its original directory. There is a limit to how many deletions can be undone, but it should be pretty large (currently 1024 items). Sometimes this feature might be unwanted. To prevent accidents you can specify the "-R" option to disable this feature.
IMWHEEL SUPPORTWith XFree86 3.3.2+ server, using the wheel is seen as button 4 and 5 pressed. You only have to use "IMPS/2" or "Intellimouse" for protocol and add "ZAxisMapping 4 5 " in the "Pointer" section of XF86Config. If imwheel (a program used to emulate key pressed when wheel is used for program not supporting wheel), the following two lines must be add to imwheel config file :
USER-DEFINED KEYBOARD ACTIONSKeys 0-9 will invoke qiv-command with the key pressed as the first argument and the current image filename as the second argument. qiv-command is not distributed with qiv; it is to be supplied by the user. Thus, this feature could be enabled by placing a simple shell script such as the following in the command search path (for example, in the user's ~/bin directory):
#!/bin/sh # Argument sanity checking eliminated for brevity case $1 in 0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9) mkdir -f dir$1; mv "$fname" dir$1 ;; *) echo "unrecognized command"; exit ;; esac
If the first line of the output is like "NEWNAME=xxxxxxx" then qiv thinks that the filename of the currently displayed image has changed to this new name and updates its internal filelist. This is very useful when using qiv-command to rename files.
Please also see the example that came together with qiv.

Sending a SIGUSR1 to qiv will cause the program to flip to next picture. SIGUSR2 will move to previous.
