Image viewers and photo management apps for Linux

gThumb

  • - tagging has no keyboard accessibility, but does have autocomplete
  • - weirdo UI - how do you get to the About dialog, or find out what version the thing is?

XnViewMP

Nomacs

Shotwell

  • can't delete the current file (!). Tested in v0.22 (2015). Even if the current version can, the feature set is just too basic.
  • freezes with 100% CPU usage for large image collections: "UNIQUE constraint failed: TagTable.name"

Geeqie

  • animated GIF support just added in Dec 2016 and hasn't made it into the binaries
  • no keyword autocompletion in v1.2.2 (which is old, see above)

Viewnior

  • - extremely basic
  • - No IPTC metadata support, despite claims.
