How to Install Mirage on Fedora 37/36/35

Mirage is a fast and simple GTK+ image viewer because it depends only on PyGTK. If you want a decent image viewer and the ability to access it via the command line, a fullscreen mode, slideshow mode, essential editing tools to resize/crop/rotate/flip, and a configurable interface, Mirage would be the most straightforward option. The following tutorial will teach you how to install it on your Fedora Desktop.

Recommended Steps Before Installation

Before the tutorial, the first step is to run a DNF update, ensuring your system is up-to-date to avoid conflicts.

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh

Install Mirage

Mirage is available on Fedora’s default repository, making the installation simple and quick.

In your terminal, use the following command to install.

How to Launch Mirage

Now that you have the software installed, launching can be done in two ways.

Users with the command line terminal launch the application using the following command.


For most desktop users, you would use the following path to open.

Activities > Show Applications > Mirage


Once open, you can begin using Mirage for your images. The edit menu can crop and resize along with many other image customization options.


How to Update Mirage

The following command can update the software and any system package. Ideally, the terminal update command should be used even with auto-updates in your desktop GUI to ensure everything is updating correctly.
