hi Alain,

try GetDeb:

http://www.getdeb.net/app/XnView

I've been using this since 12.04 - the packaging there is more distro/release specific (doesn't spam logs - like /home.~/xsessionerrors)

Also get's a mentioning in the Ubuntuusers-Wiki (de): https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/xnviewmp

If you have a prior version installed it's recommandable to uninstall it completely, aka "purge". Your home-directory will remain untouched!

It integrates nicely in Kubuntu 15.10-Wily Werewolf (what a name----just for Haloween I believe :-)

If you like to give it preference over GwenView, just go to -> Systemsettings -> Media-Associations, and pull it in top.

thx a lot.

http://www.getdeb.net/app/XnView does not work for me on kubuntu. Software librairy says it does not exist and can not install it.
I'm wondering if somewhere a ppa is written.

https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/xnviewmp is in german iand i do not understand german so i'm stuck there.
