Okay, I just made view64 a proper imageviewer in Ubuntu 11.10 that opens c64 image files with a double click (and quits on escape), all without any CLI commands. Here's what you have to do:

1) on x64-systems, do
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
first, otherwise view64 will not work! From Ubuntu 12.04 onwards, install
instead, for some reason that escape me the regular ia32-libs don't work anymore...

2) move view64-linux to /usr/local/bin and rename it:
sudo mv view64-linux /usr/local/bin/view64

3) Create a launcher like so:
gedit .local/share/applications/view64.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=A viewer for Commodore 64 Image Files
Exec=view64 -width 640 -height 400

(I gave it the mufflon icon, but you only see it when you search from the ubuntu menu, so you can leave that blank - also, if you don't have Mufflon installed!)

4) Save, quit gedit and
chmod +x .local/share/applications/view64.desktop

5) make the mimetype known to the system. I used assogiate (sudo apt-get install assogiate) and created a new definition in Images called c64, with the description "Commodore 64 Image File" and only the file-extensions (Tab:filenames) that view64 reads (plus some more that are the same file but a different extension, like *.gun, *.fun, *.fp2 and .*.nup (NUFLI packed)). Quit Assogiate.

6) Open mimetype-associations:
gedit .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
Link view64.desktop to the mimetype by adding
under "Added Associations".

7) Logout and back in to activate it. Done!

Now, you can change the view64 arguments in the Exec-Line of the view64.desktop according to your needs. Add -nolace if you prefer rastered over blended IFLIs, change the window size using -width and -height or go fullscreen with -fs. You can even make it an instant BMP converter by just adding -save!

Enjoy! ;-D This is pretty awesome if you're working with NUVIE videos!...

I just put the linux version through its paces and it works like a charm! Great job. thanks so much for supporting other platforms! Only the hungarian letters in the readme come out garbled in my german easypeasy Ubuntu, but that's the only "issue"! ;-)

Awesome, MUIFLI and NUFLI support, yess! ;-) Now you just need to release the source so ppl can port it to other platforms!...

Edit: I just saw that you actually include a Linux-version already! ;-) Big props for that! But that source would really be great, since some people can't wait to turn this into MacOS X quicklook plugins, so you can view c64-pictures right in the MacOS X finder...
