Can anyone point me to a SFS or PET or TAR file for Shotwell please? It looks like perfect image viewer/organiser for me. I cannot work out how to download something I can use and I don't know how to compile source.

If not - then can anyone point me to something equivalent. I'd be happy with a linux (puppy) version of Xnview. I'm using the windows version on WINE - but want to move completely to Linux.

I looked at the dependencies required for shotwell, and I don't know if Puppy has all of them.

You may want to download and install gqview 2.15 (see attached example) from


You can interface it with mtpaint and in this way have a complete environment similar to xnview.

Just a thought.

I have had a look at Shotwell at it looks very good. It has a great search facility and looks reasonably easy to drive.

I tried the version in the Precise Puppy repo that Billtoo recommended. It does have a lot of dependencies, I think 170M in total.

I think Fatdog will be my next main distribution so I am keen to see if Shotwell will work in it.

It is suppose to be able to email photos but it's looking for nautilus. Nautilus is a file manager, I think, not an email client.

Are there any interested parties out there or is there something better or smaller?
