       sxiv - Simple X Image Viewer


       sxiv  [-abcfhiopqrtvZ] [-A FRAMERATE] [-e WID] [-G GAMMA] [-g GEOMETRY] [-N NAME] [-n NUM]
       [-S DELAY] [-s MODE] [-z ZOOM] FILE...


       sxiv is a simple image viewer for X.

       It has two modes of operation: image and thumbnail mode. The default  is  image  mode,  in
       which  only  the  current  image  is  shown. In thumbnail mode a grid of small previews is
       displayed, making it easy to choose an image to open.

       Please note, that the fullscreen mode requires an EWMH/NetWM compliant window manager.


              Play animations with a constant frame rate set to FRAMERATE.

       -a     Play animations of multi-frame images.

       -b     Do not show info bar on bottom of window.

       -c     Remove all orphaned cache files from the thumbnail cache directory and exit.

       -e WID Embed sxiv's window into window whose ID is WID.

       -f     Start in fullscreen mode.

       -G GAMMA
              Set image gamma to GAMMA (-32..32).

       -g GEOMETRY
              Set window position and size. See section GEOMETRY SPECIFICATIONS of X(7) for  more
              information on GEOMETRY argument.

       -N NAME
              Set the resource name of sxiv's X window to NAME.

       -n NUM Start at picture number NUM.

       -h     Print brief usage information to standard output and exit.

       -i     Read names of files to open from standard input. Also done if FILE is `-'.

       -o     Write  list  of  all  marked files to standard output when quitting. In combination
              with -i sxiv can be used as a visual filter/pipe.

       -p     Enable private mode, in which sxiv does not write any cache or temporary files.

       -q     Be quiet, disable warnings to standard error stream.

       -r     Search the given directories recursively for images to view.

       -S DELAY
              Start in slideshow mode. Set the delay between images to DELAY seconds.  DELAY  may
              be a floating point number.

       -s MODE
              Set  scale  mode  according  to MODE character. Supported modes are: [d]own, [f]it,
              [w]idth, [h]eight.

       -t     Start in thumbnail mode.

       -v     Print version information to standard output and exit.

       -Z     The same as `-z 100'.

       -z ZOOM
              Set zoom level to ZOOM percent.

       The information displayed on the left side of the status bar  can  be  replaced  with  the
       output  of  a user-provided script, which is called by sxiv whenever an image gets loaded.
       The path of this script is $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/sxiv/exec/image-info and the  arguments  given
       to it are: 1) path to image file, 2) image width, 3) image height.

       There    is    also    an    example    script    installed    together   with   sxiv   as


       Additional external keyboard commands can be defined using a handler  program  located  in
       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/sxiv/exec/key-handler.   The  handler is invoked by pressing Ctrl-x.  The
       next key combo is passed as its first argument. Passed via stdin are  the  images  to  act
       upon,  one  path  per line: all marked images, if in thumbnail mode and at least one image
       has been marked, otherwise the current  image.   sxiv(1)  will  block  until  the  handler
       terminates. It then checks which images have been modified and reloads them.

       The  key  combo  argument  has the following form: "[C-][M-][S-]KEY", where C/M/S indicate
       Ctrl/Meta(Alt)/Shift  modifier  states  and  KEY  is   the   X   keysym   as   listed   in
       /usr/include/X11/keysymdef.h without the "XK_" prefix.

       There  is also an example script installed together with sxiv as /usr/share/sxiv/exec/key-


       sxiv stores all thumbnails under $XDG_CACHE_HOME/sxiv/.

       Use the command line option -c to remove all orphaned cache files. Additionally,  run  the
       following command afterwards inside the cache directory to remove empty subdirectories:

              find . -depth -type d -empty ! -name '.' -exec rmdir {} \;
