What is KuickShow?
KuickShow displays images using all the available space, without being wasted in bars or menus. It also has a smart automatic zooming that scales images according to its size. You can use the integrated file browser to choose images, or navigate through a folder with the mousewheel or the keyboard. It also has fullscreen view and slideshow, and supports a wide range of image formats.

Building to run with KDE SC 4.x
Before building KuickShow, you must make sure to have Imlib1 as well as its development headers installed.
If your distribution doesn't provide Imlib1 packages, download from here, unpack it to a temporary directory, enter the directory "imlib-1.9.15" and run
./configure make make install
This will build and install Imlib to /usr/local. Then grab the latest version of KuickShow, unpack it to a temporary directory, enter the directory "kuickshow-0.9.1" and run
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr make make install
You may choose different directory as prefix of course (e.g. choose the directory where your KDE4 is installed).
That's it, KuickShow is now installed and ready to display your images!
