Picture viewer for the X Window System

'xzgv' is a GTK+/Imlib-based picture viewer for X, which supports most popular image formats; thumbnails used are compatible with xv, zgv, and the Gimp. It differs from other picture viewers for X in that it uses one window for both the file selector and viewer, allows both scrolling and fit-to-window methods of viewing large pictures, and doesn't mangle the picture's aspect ratio unless you tell it to. It also provides extensive keyboard support; if you prefer using the keyboard, this is probably the best viewer for you. However, you can also use the mouse: you can click on a picture to view it, drag the picture around to scroll (or use the scrollbars), it has menus, etc.
