@MarsSeed Thanks for your hint! I wasn't able to find a package called python3-py3exiv2 in the AUR or the official packages.

Instead, we currently optdepend on python-exiv2 which seems to link to the corresponding upstream py3exiv2 and runs fine with vimiv-qt for me.

@artems, the AUR does not host binary builds, only build scripts and metadata. So it is the user or someone's CI cerver that needs to rebuild the Arch package for Python 3.12.

Hi, is this the right place to request an update to the package to be built against python3.12 or that is more for the GitHub issues on the repo?

This should optdepend on a package called python-py3exiv2, and current requirements call for its latest version, py3exiv2=0.11.0, as of this writing.

Thank you for creating this package, this is the best image viewer that works on wayland I found so far!!

@sk4y thank you for catching this, I must have forgotten to update the .SRCINFO file. Fixed.

@karlch could you change the version of the package? Locally the package has the version 0.8.0-2 but on the AUR the version is 0.8.0-1. Thanks.

@karich: OK, adding /* to the folder path will display the thumbnails. vimiv <folder> does not do that. No problem.

Thanks for this detailed explanation, makes perfect sense if you think about it. Let me know if I messed anything else / new up in the updated packages :)

Would it be possible for you to open a github issue concerning read only mode with some more details on how you expect this to work?

It is possible to start vimiv in thumbnail mode, as it is possible to pass arbitrary commands to vimiv upon startup. The relevant example here would be

vimiv * --command "enter thumbnail"

Hope this helps!

Almost. It is a combination of 'provides' and 'conflicts' that resolves conflicts.

'conflicts' basically lists 'provide' names and those names never end on '-git'.

1) The 'provide' names listed in the *-git packages are (see

provides=(${pkgname%-git} 'vimiv')
conflicts=(${pkgname%-git} 'vimiv')

or even shorter (see example in


2) The 'provide' names listed in vimiv-qt, because vimiv and vimiv-qt cannot be installed side-by-side, are:


(I wish vimiv had a view (read-only, -R) mode. And that you could start vimiv in thumbnail mode, displaying all the thumbnails.)
