Viewnior 1.4 deb package for Ubuntu 14.04 ----- 32 and 64bit

UPDATE - Jun 6 2016 - The below is outdated. There are now official builds of viewnior for Ubuntu which can be found here.


Below is the download link you can use to find the pre-compiled Viewnior deb package. I made this deb by using checkinstall.


Download Viewnior 64bit Here!

Download Viewnior 32bit Here!

Don't trust me? Just want to build Viewnior 1.4 from source for yourself? Follow the directions here but first make sure you install all the dependencies.

  • sudo apt-get install -y libexiv2-dev exiv2 libgtk2.0-dev intltool checkinstall build-essential 

In order to make a deb file yourself, follow the directions found in the link above, however when you reach the step where it says "sudo make install" instead type "sudo checkinstall" and follow the prompts. Afterwards you will find the .deb file in the Viewnior source folder which is located wherever you extracted it. 

Let me know in the comments below if this deb works for the operating system you use, it will make it easier for others as well. 


  1. Thanks a lot for posting this. It's been very useful.

  2. Running Trusty Tahr amd64, tried to install the amd64 package, got a warning, stopped.
    Then installed the above 'dependencies', tried the amd64 package again, now got this warning:

    "The package is of bad quality
    The installation of a package which violates the quality standards isn't allowed. This could cause serious problems on your computer. Please contact the person or organisation who provided this package file and include the details beneath.
    Lintian check results for /home/andrew/Downloads/viewwwnior_1.4-1_amd64.deb:
    E: viewnior: maintainer-address-malformed Mr j

    I'm too new using Ubuntu to know my risks, but I need to keep my system in a working status.
    Can you help me please? Dankeschoen!

  3. I've fixed the package so it shouldn't have any more errors. Turns out I filled in the email address part wrong. Thanks for letting me know!
