Since I'm a Linux-User i use "Comix" to read my Manga.

It's the best program i could find for reading comics on my pc.

I use HoneyView, on Windows and Linux (via wine, works fine mostly, unless you use Enter and browse in the selection window through the images in the archive). I've tried supposedly better solutions, like MangaMeeya, but HVs slickness, minimalistic not-cluttered UI and just-works^TM keeps me with it.

It's worth to mention open source QComicBook, but it's no way near the competition, and UX isn't as good as it should to gain users. I have to praise it for implementing panel-navigation algorithm for instance (sure, it's not perfect, but it's a really hard thing to do right).

I'm still thinking about doing my own cross-platform (Qt) minimalistic viewer for PDFs (and images in folders/archives as a second priority feature). Well, Okular+HoneyView are almost good enough, so I always postpone starting it, and there are always more important things to do... :)

i prefer comicrack, but its navigation is not intuitive so it takes some time to get used on. and it is extremely slow on old computers.

Ive liked using All Manga Reader. It's a Chrome browser based viewer so it might fit in a different catagory, but it has made reading manga in a browser actually enjoyable.

There are any good manga reader that works on ubuntu?
I'm looking for someone but can't find it... ^^

I like Comix.  It seems to work pretty well.  If you're using kubunto (KDE), okular seems to work pretty well too.

One problem I have CDisplay is that it orders pictures based on the first number of the file name.

So for example, if the files go:
8.png
9.png
10.png

CDisplay will order them:
10.png
8.png
9.png

You have to manually rename the files:
08.png
09.png
10.ong

Do you have any recommendations for good readers that have a file browser within them? It's one of the main reasons I've continued to use ACDsee.. I can just click on an archive in the file browser and it gets loaded into the acdsee image viewer.

well,
i use Honeyview --> http://www.honeyview.org/
it is just a viewer but i think its one of the best out there.
the main thing that i like about this is that its so simple.
now the most viewers need you to configure the program
how you like to have it and heres the thing: in honeyview
you can do all this within the rightclick menu. honeyview
has options as well, all i needed to do there is that bookmarks
auto-save and -load. on the homepage is a youtube video that
shows the program in action CHECK IT OUT

I agree, I'm surprised the thread made it that long without a single mention of HoneyView.

is there any Software that downloads mangas from manga-viewer-sites with search and read functions?  :huh:

ps. i read mine with irfanview great tool

Why not just download from the translation groups' websites?
Online readers usually compress images and make them ugly. (Not to mention watermarks.)

I am still using comical although there hase not been any development for the last five years. The main reason for this is that it runs on all Windows versions since Windows 98 and works with extremely low hardware requirements and can still deal with Packed archives (zip and rar).
I still got an old LT Stylus Tablet (Pentium III - 233 MHz, 64 MB Ram Windows 98). It takes but a minute or two until it has loaded the first frame but from then it is quite fluid and the whole thing does not cost mor than $ 50 and when I lose it (which unfortunately already happened) I just purchase another one.

For quite some time I've used CDisplay but once I've seen PicWalker and then MMCE I switched to them. I was trying at least a dozen different comic viewers but none of them was as good as MM or PW.

PicWalker is much smaller and uses less resources than CDisplay while at the same time has more options and Manga Meeya and PicWalker let you read more comfortably (the continuous pages option that I've mentioned about, if someone has never seen it he won't know how much better reading manga can become). MM and PW have smooth scrolling, not jumpy one as in CDisplay, which combined with continuous pages makes it perfect for viewing manga. MM and PW have thumbnails options which you can easily configure (especially in MM 7.4). MM has very advanced zoom function which is even better than in Photoshop (I'm not kidding, the lanczos filter I as talking about. Thanks to that even LQ scans can be fit to width and you'll be able to read what's written in a small font). In MM and PW you can easily save/copy pages. Both have built in graphic editor which CDisplay doesn't have and CDisplayEx has but is less advanced. You can do most of editing without using Gimp or PS. PicWalker has option of batch convert of files, e.g. if we have 1000 .png files and we would like to convert them to .jpg files it's no problem. You can customize key/mouse configuration as you like in both. PW can find duplicate files (which can be very useful when someone has thousands of Claymore images for example: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FAM6MBV2 ). Both MM and PW have slideshow option which you can configure as you like (so program scrolls for you). Both have "Favorites option" and you can bookmark where you left off (in PicWalker surprisingly it's better done than in MM even though it's much older and you can bookmark dozens of files) so that you will easily access the exact page of the exact file you want. They both have the hitory of recently opened files, e.g. last seen file was Berserk chapter 288 and after running the program it starts with that file (it depends on how you configure the program, it can do that or not). But what's even better it remembers exact pages of previous files, so if earlier I was on page 123 of Claymore volume 12 and I'll choose Claymore volume 12 it will go there (you can configure that also) !!! Which is really, really convenient. There are plugins (especially for MM, for PicWalker they're hard to find now) and skins. Like I said earlier, it can easily access archives in archives (or even archives in archives in archives, etc.). Installation isn't needed. It has also continuous pages modewhich is the main reason I loved these programs.

@hansm
Honeyviewer is a good manga viewer but it doesn't compare to PicWalker or MangaMeeya (which currently I consider as the best viewer there is). It has less options even though it requires much more space on the HDD (after installation it's over 40 MB whereas MangaMeeya is like 5 MB) and RAM and CPU usage. It doesn't have such awesome zoom capabilities like MM, it doesn't have such smooth and great scrolling option and it's basically good only for people with large (at least 21") monitors/displays who use the option "show 100% of the image" or "show the real size".  It also doesn't have much configuration capabilities.

@silverado
I've switched from old MM 2.4 Beta to MangaMeeya 7.4 and all is better except one thing - I can't find the option "thumbnail mode" (press "T" to activate it assuming you didn't change the binding key) which in MMCE 2.4 would allow to scroll every page vertically, similar to PicWalker. The name is confusing and inaccurate but basically it allows to look at the page "x" and the next one ("x+1") at the same time. It's better then having two pages horizontally, especially if someone doesn't have a huge display. Here's a screenshot of what I have in mind:
Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!


In PicWalker it works even better (you just have to activate "continuous pages mode" or press "C")and that's the only reason why I'm still using such old program.
