I just wish I could distribute it. :)
But it's really not hard for anyone with a little time to fix up. This
# unofficial xv source
deb-src http://debian.uni-essen.de/misc/local/ theo-phys local
And you can see where to get the patches. :)
There are binary debs there too, but I didn't care about them as they're
the Potato ones.
Maybe it's just that I used xv before I used anything else, but all the
"free" image viewers make me crazy.
