Meh Image Viewer

📅 2015-Sep-01 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Meh is probably the fastest image viewer I have ever used. This minimal and light image viewer is named after Feh, another fast image viewer that I like.

Meh uses ImageMagick and is faster than Feh. I found that its claim is indeed true, it opens images in a flash, both from the shell and as default image viewer on the desktop.

Install from source

$ git clone https://github.com/jhawthorn/meh.git
$ sudo apt install libgif-dev libjpeg-dev libx11-dev libxext-dev
$ cd meh
$ make
$ sudo make install

Note that I highly recommend using checkinstall as described here instead of this.

Use

$ meh *
$ meh *.jpg

Tried with: Meh 0.3 and Ubuntu 14.04
