I have many pictures which are screen shots created from shutter and downloaded from web. These pictures have long file names. When I create thumbnails on these pictures via feh -t, these long file name will prevent feh to display many pictures in one row.

And I did not find a solution for this on the feh man page. What can I do to display many pictures in a row?


I know this is an old question and I know know the rules about that on this site but I found a solution (workaround maybe?) for myself just now:

Use --font to specify a truetype font that exists on your system and specify a size of 0, eg:

feh --recursive --thumbnail --font "/usr/share/fts/truetype/openoffice/opens___.ttf/0" /mnt/pictures
