- How to set gpicview to default image viewer? Use following command line:
xdg-mime default gpicview.desktop `grep ‘MimeType=’ /usr/share/applications/gpicview.desktop | sed -e ‘s/.*=//’ -e ‘s/;/ /g’`
NOTE: xdg-utils is needed here. It’s a tool released by Portland project of Freedesktop.org. Most modern Linux distros have this tool installed by default.

A small mistake: “pacman -Sy gpicview” is for Archlinux. For Debian it would be “apt-get install gpicview”
There is no option to open GPicView maximized.
Another thing – only white backgound 🙁
