Classic confinement request: xv


Xv is an image viewer, and needs access to the entire filesystem to be able to open image files (from, for example, system icons under /usr/share/icons, cached thumbnails under $HOME/.cache and so on). The application was written in the mid-90s and doesn’t make use of any modern toolkit or desktop integration.

This specific build of xv includes Greg Roelofs’ jumbo patch collection and is built from current maintainer David Griffith’s repository with no additional patches or modifications.


ooh, ooh, next up, xmms!


@chipaca Humm, I don’t think we have source-type: cvs.
