gliv - An OpenGL Image Viewer
gliv [OPTIONS]... [FILES]...
gliv uses gdk-pixbuf to load images and OpenGL to render them. It
allows to do some moving, rotating, zooming and slide show.
The options are first set to their default values, "off" for flags,
then read either from ~/.glivrc or /etc/glivrc or a configuration file
specified on the command line, and finally read from the command line.
Omitting the argument for an option that takes an "on|off" argument
(flags) is like giving it "on", so --foo is the same as --foo=on if foo
is an on|off flag.
Print help and exit.
Print version and exit.
Add all files in the directory. With this option, when you open
a file on the command line or with the open dialog, all others
files in the directory are added as well.
Recursive directory traversal. If gliv tries to load a direcory,
it will also load every image all its subdirectories.
Show images in sorted order. The images list will be sorted
before the slide show.
Show images in random order. The images list will be shuffled
before the slide show.
Try to load every file. When loading a file, the loader is
chosen according to the filename extension in order to optimize
the loading time. If the extension is unknown, the file is
ignored, with this option gliv will always try to load the file.
Connect to an already running gliv. With this option, gliv will
open the files passed in the arguments in the gliv server
window. It can also be used with the -0 option. The gliv server
is the latest launched gliv or the one which has been chosen
using the Options menu.
No images menu at startup. Disabling the images menus creation
at startup makes it faster, especially with many files on the
Use this configuration file or none. Specify it to disable
loading of the rc file. With a filename as argument it will use
it as a configuration file.
Start the slide show immediately. This way you will not have to
start it manually from the menu.
Read null-terminated filenames. This can be used with "find
-print0" or with "tr ’\n’ ’\0’" when you have a very long list
of filenames to pass to gliv. Unlike xargs(1) it allows an
unlimited number of filenames.
Output a collection. With this option, gliv creates a collection
from the loaded files and outputs it to stdout or in the
Initial window geometry. This option can be used to specify the
position and dimension of the gliv window. It expects a geometry
argument in the XParseGeometry(3X11) format like: 640x480+20-30
Starting with version 1.8, gliv supports a file format called "GLiv
collection". It contains an images list and the associated thumbnails,
this way, when you load a collection the images menus rebuilding is
faster since it does not have to make thumbnails.
gliv supports also transparent decompression, so the collections can be
compressed in bzip2, gzip or compress(1) provided that you have the

The first mouse button and the arrow keys will move the image unless
the Control key is pressed. In which case the image will be rotated
around the window center.
Your mouse wheel (if supported) will zoom the image and switch it when
you press the button.
You can also zoom by dragging the mouse vertically while holding Shift
and the first button.
Space and Backspace act like n and p.
Draw a rectangle with the third button and gliv will zoom in it.
