Overview

OMView is a simple image viewer for the openmoko platform. It supports touchscreen gestures, thumbnail view and raw files. It is intended to be lightweight, fast and easy to use. It depends on the EFL.

Download and installation

The Viewer is now available in the Community Repository which means you can use the graphical installer on Om 2008.8 and you don't need to update it by hand.

For the most recent version use Manual install:

opkg install http://projects.openmoko.org/frs/download.php/373/omview_r27_armv4t.ipk

In post r27 releases, the theme is included in the ipk, no need to download it extra. For now use the manual install, until the newest version is in the repository.

Usage

Omview files.png
  • Omview has three modes: directory view, thumbnail view, and fullscreen image view.
  • It understands five touchpad gestures: right, up, left, down, click. To use these just move your finger or stylus for at least 50px in one direction.
  • In fullscreen view images are automatically scaled and rotated. Not by exif orientation data but only by image dimensions, so that an image takes as much space on the screen while beeing fully visible. This means landscape images are rotated, portait images are left the way they are.

Directory and thumbnail view always show 6 items at the same time with the other items beeing on the previous/next pages. The statusbar on the bottom shows the path and below the subdirectory count/file count/page

Gesture Directory View Thumbnail View Fullscreen
left previous page previous page previous image
right next page next page next image
up change to parent directory change to directory view change to thumbnail view
down change to thumbnail view change to fullscreen view
click change to clicked directory show clicked image toggle 1:1 zoom

Known Bugs and Limitations

  • thumbnail creation is slower than image viewing and takes much space (~ 100K per image) to free this space just delete .thumbnail folder in the home dir.
