Lack of a good multipage .tif reader solved ...

Postby ghmitch » May 15th, '19, 05:37

For a long time now I have been lamenting the absence of qfaxreader, the best multipage tiff app for linux that I have ever used. I have been making do with Gnome Document Reader, but it doesn't hold a straw to qfaxreader.

Then today I was struggling with old multipage tifs again and just for ducks went out searching for the old qfaxreader on That is when I discovered that Redhat is now offering it in their repos. None of the Fedora versions would install on Mageia 6, but the current CentOS 7 version installed uneventfully and works great. And the latest Fedora 30 version installs uneventfully on Mageia 7. So I am very extremely happy to have qfaxreader back again after a long absence. Anyone needing a good multipage tif reader should check this thing out.

The attached pdf shows a comparison between the two tif reader apps. The one on the left is Gnome Document Reader and the one on the right is QFaxReader.
