    Despite the existence of geeqie, I still use the old good gqview with my own patches. The reason for this is that geeqie development is poor: it is not even possible to submit a bug report (you need to be "authorized" to do so), and old bugs still remain. In fact, a long time ago I submitted a very serious bug, and it is still not fixed: if you have a folder with many images and try to open only one, geeqie takes forever to open ("forever" depends on the number of files in the folder). The reason for this is that geeqie makes an ordered list of the files of the folder, without purpose (gqview has the same bug). My patch for this is to generate the file list ONLY if the folder panel is visible. A trivial and logical 1-line patch, yet never implemented. It's a pity that geeqie is not evolving, it is a great program.

    Very, very fast, exactly what a raw viewer should be. Thank you!

    I was always fan of gqview as a no-nonsense yet not dumbed down image viewer and geeqie continues well in this direction.

    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.

    This was already one of the best image viewers when it was still gqview. Now, as geeqie, it is progressing very well. I love the feature that my camera's corresponding RAW and JPEG files are treated "as one" (in a group, but can be touched seperately). - And there is this other extremely useful feature: you can search whole directory trees for duplicate images and similar images and even compare two directory trees for doublettes. I miss only two features: 1. adding a keyword to all files currently selected in the images list (would improve the speed of categorizing new photos immensely!) 2. rating images (plus being able to filter by rating). Currently I "simulate" that feature by having keywords for bad, good, very good, excellent, but it's a clumsy workaround. Thank you for all your good work! Keep it up!
