    Will doing so convert my Ubuntu into a Kubuntu? When I ran SuSE, I
    used KDE and I kept meeting people who told me why Gnome (suck it,
    spelling nazis) was better. Now that I have installed Ubuntu, I use
    Gnome and keep meeting people who tell me why KDE is better--in some
    cases the same people. Sigh.

    Anyway, I don't necessarily need Gwenview, I just need a graphics viewer
    that will let me navigate through directories and "hunt" quickly for a
    given picture. F-spot and gThumb don't seem to allow you to view and
    arrow through the directory tree so far as I can tell--maybe there is
    an option that will allow this?

    I searched out and marked these for installation, they required a whole
    bunch of other stuff which I also marked for installation, and...

    Still no good. I just need a good Gnome compatible picture viewer that
    lets me surf through the directory tree.

    You will still be able to run GNOME/Gnome/gnome if that is the question
    behind the question.

    Gwenview is about the best for that purpose that I have found.
    Look at it this way, if you do install the Kubuntu Desktop you now have
    more choices for applications and can run them all under KDE or
    GNOME/Gnome/gnome. Choice is a good thing [TM]

    In fact, it has one feature that works better than I remember from
    Gwenview: When you go up one directory level, it stays on the directory
    that you just left, making it easy to advance to the one just after it.
    As I recall, Gwenview used to start out at the top of every directory.

    No. It will simply add KDE as a "session option" at the log in screen.
    Your default desktop environment will still be Gnome

    Gnome is far better. ;-)

    Listen mate, it's all down to personal opinion. Use what you feel more
    comfortable with. If you want to use KDE apps, you need certain KDE
    libraries. I have KDE installed but rarely boot into it. The reason,
    so I can run some of the great KDE apps. Amarok being the main one.

    It's down to you. Ignore everyone that isn't yourself. ;-)

    I see you've found one already. Good.

    That statement says it all and it is sound advice for now and for the
