Geeqie is a lightweight image viewer. It was forked from GQview. The development is focused on features for photo collection maintenance: raw format, Exif/IPTC/XMP metadata and integration with programs like UFraw, ImageMagick, Gimp, gPhoto or ExifTo
The current development can be found on Gitouris (https://gitorious.org/geeqie)
in Geeqie 1.1 (installed on ubuntu 14.04) it is only possible to complete the metadata and not to correct or rewrite, as was possible in version 1.0.
Another half baked, abandoned Linux application. Stupid thing is starting in root folder every time and no way to set a startup folder.
I do not like it at all. gqview was easy to use especially the external editors feature where I had on different shortcuts different resizings. External editors here I am not able to set up as I wish. It is called fork, but old gqview setting was ignored without any warnings, etc, etc, etc ....
