Comix: A Useful Comic Reader For Linux

Filed under
Software

I am not a Comic fan, but sometimes I do read some comics to keep myself entertained. My usual way of reading comic is to go online to find the comic I want and read the strips, one at a time. The problem with this method is that with a slow Internet connection, the loading of each strip (image file) is very slow and often results in an unpleasant reading experience. A better way is to install a comic viewer on your computer so you can download and view the comic strip right on your desktop, without any delay. For Linux, Comix is a useful comic reader that I strongly recommend.

Comix is an open-source and lightweight comic viewer that runs on Linux, BSD and virtually any other UNIX-like OS. At its core, it is basically an image viewer with support for comic library and is able to reads ZIP and tar archives natively.

Installation
To install Comix in Ubuntu, you can easily install it via the Ubuntu Software Center, Synaptic Package Manager or type the following command in the terminal:
