ive been using 'fbi' for quite some time and its pretty good. it even
converts unsupported formats if you have ImageMagik automatically. but
requires framebuffer though.

one thing it lacks is a directory browser/image preview like zgv.
perhaps someone can write a patch ? :=)   ( the preview is available
in the xfbi though but its quite ugly imo)
