IrfanView Linux alternative? [duplicate]

I'm looking for some Linux alternative to IrfanView (image viewer). At best, it should have all its features, the same controls (both mouse and kbd) or fully adjustable, and be as quick.

"ImageMagick has an interactive mode, but I've never liked it... But it definitely will load almost every image format out there.

gThumb is very slick, but it's a GNOME tool so it's not littered with options.

Eye of GNOME is just a dumb viewer, but it does most of the navigation stuff, and I think there's a ""click to edit"" option."

I've used this on Windows, but prefer IrFanView"

"Although I have been doing some research of this problem too, I have not found anything as good as Irfan. That is still an app I envy to the Windows users.

Now I use geeqie, eog (eye of gnome) or gthumb, it depends on the actual Desktop Environment. And I do all editting in GIMP. It is not ideal, but it is quite good."

I believe that GTK+ and KDE apps have fully configurable key bindings for anything in their menus, so you shouldn't get too hung up on that if you find something with the right functionality.

It isn't updated much lately and the keyboard shortcuts are different, but feh is an incredibly fast image viewer.
