Since a while ago, and during my work at Igalia, I’ve been porting EOG to Maemo using the new and great Fremantle widgets!
The project is still in an *early stage* but I couldn’t wait more to let everyone know about it so today I’ve published the git repository.
The project is being done as a branch of the original EOG. You can get the source by doing:
$ git clone http://git.igalia.com/eog.git
$ git checkout –track -b mobile origin/mobile
And then, you know, inside scratchbox:
$ make install
$ run-standalone.sh eog
Thank you to the people who helped me porting EOG, mainly Claudio and Berto.
And here you have a screencast and some nice screenshots, hope you like it:

Thank you Miloš 😉
Wow, eog’s hardly recognisable on Freemantle. 🙂
Looks really nice.
I reall don’t like the feel of one dialog spawning another. Also they block the entire application?
How would you suggest it to be done then?
What do you mean by they blocking the entire app?
I searched for any further traces of EOG for Maemo5, but it seems activity ended in September 2009. – Did I miss anything here or was that it?
The reason I’m asking is that EOG (the desktop version I know) has a feature I really miss in Nokias image viewer and therefore would be the ideal foundation to create *the* ultimate photo viewer for maemo. (See
Yes, I stopped the development of EOG Maemo but you have the code here:
It might be a bit of trouble now to apply my changes to the current EOG but nonetheless you can do it.
What’s that missing feature you have in EOG?
I didn’t try the Maemo port, I have to admit, but the desktop version of EOG does the following: If you go to full screen mode and display an image that is smaller than the screen size (on the N900: smaller than 800×480), EOG will scale the image so that it always fills the whole screen. (Or as much of the screen as possible, preserving the aspect ratio.)
I have quite a few small images on my N900; showing them around on this tiny 3.5″ screen isn’t a pleasure because the high DPI value of the N900 makes them appear very small. It would be much better if they’d always appear at a zoom level that makes use of the full screen.
Nokia refused to implement that (I filed an enhancement request in bugzilla), so I’m looking for alternatives. A working, stable EOG would be a tempting alternative.
(Oh, and then there’s the TV-out thing… That would be totally new.)
