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. Or Download it from the project page and install with opkg:
opkg install http://projects.openmoko.org/frs/download.php/373/omview_r15_armv4t.ipk
This will install the theme you see on the screenshots:
mv /usr/share/ewl/themes/e17.edj /usr/share/ewl/themes/e17.edj.bak wget -O /usr/share/ewl/themes/e17.edj http://projects.openmoko.org/frs/download.php/372/fireball-ewl-openmoko-r2.edj
- 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.
