how can you view tif files in ubuntu?

Asked by Raviv on 2009-08-18

I can not find an application that will view tiff files in Ubuntu.
I saved the filles on my hard disk but neither the Documents viewer nor the Image viewer managed to show the file correctly. They both show a blank page instead of showing the contents (I checked the file on a Windows machine and it opens without a problem).

Try using gimp instead.

See here for more info about gimp:

For viewing purposes Gimp is very heavy and opens multiple pages only as separate images instead of one document (never mind it changes the layout proportions)

Try running IrfanView using wine:

Homepage is http://www.irfanview.com

To get Irfanview working under wine, the file i_view32.ini needs to be deleted

Irfanview supports .tiff files as well

Can you help with this problem?
