-galapix - A Zoomable Image Viewer zoomview 
-==========================================
+galapix - A Zoomable Image Viewer
+=================================
 
 galapix is an image viewer that allows you to directly zoom into large
 collection of tens of thousand of images from tiny thumbnails down to
 galapix supports a wide varity of image formats including JPEG, PNG,
 XCF (Gimp), KRA (Krita) and all stuff supported by ImageMagick.
 
+**Actually this is fork from Google code project with small fixes.**
 
-Portability:
-============
-
-galapix is written with GNU/Linux in mind, calls to external
-application, which are used to handle all kinds of file formats might
-not be portable to other platforms.  There are also plenty of other
-little details that will make portability to non-POSIX OSs problematic
-(thread and directory handling).
-
-
-Features:
-=========
-
-  * support for large image collections of tens of thousands of images
-
-  * support for extremely large images (gigapixel range)
-
-  * support for a wide varity of image formats (png, jpeg, xcf, kra,
-    svg and everything supported by ImageMagick)
-
-  * support for a wide varity of archive formats (rar, zip, tar)
-
-  * very fast once the cache is generated
-
-  * flexible layouting functions
-
-  * abiltiy to move images around and resize them on the workspace
-
-  * very responsive, loading happens completly in the background and
-    never blocks interactivity
-
-  * workspace layout can be saved and loaded 
-
-  * Space Navigator is fully supported
-
-
-Required Libraries and Tools:
-=============================
-
-  * OpenGL   - http://www.opengl.org 
-  * SQlite   - http://www.sqlite.org/
-  * libjpeg  - http://www.ijg.org/
-  * libpng   - http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/
-  * scons    - http://www.scons.org/ 
-  * GLEW     - http://glew.sourceforge.net/
-  * Magick++ - http://www.imagemagick.org/Magick%2B%2B/
-  * boost    - http://www.boost.org/
-  * librsvg  - http://librsvg.sourceforge.net/
-  * libexif  - http://libexif.sourceforge.net/
-
-On Ubuntu 9.10 one can install all required libraries with this call:
-
-  sudo apt-get install \
-    libsqlite3-dev \
-    libglew1.5-dev \
-    libjpeg62-dev \
-    libpng12-dev \
-    scons \
-    libmagick++-dev \
-    libcurl4-gnutls-dev \
-    libglademm-2.4-dev \
-    libgtkglextmm-x11-1.2-dev \
-    libboost-thread-dev \
-    libspnav-dev \
-    libexif-dev
-
-The following packages are optional and used to handle some more
-exotic image formats:
-
-  sudo apt-get install \
-    librsvg2-bin \
-    ufraw \
-    krita \
-    xcftools
-
-OpenGL is required as well, but not listed here, since installation
-might differ depending on the brand of graphics card. For other
-distributions library names might be slighly different, but all the
-required libraries should be part of most distributions.
-
-
-Compilation:
-============
-
-The easiest way to compile is to type:
-
-  scons
-
-The rest should happen automatically.
-
-If you want to customize compiler options or other stuff you can do that
-by running:
-  
-  scons CXX=g++-4.2 BUILD=debug ...
-
-To get a list of available variables use:
-
-  scons -h
-
-If the scons script fails to configure properly you can get additional
-information from "config.log".
-
-
-Running:
-========
-
-Galapix comes in two versions, one is galapix.sdl, a GUI-less SDL
-based version and galapix.gtk a GUI version. The Gtk version is at
-this point very incomplete and hasn't been tested much, but it might
-be easier to use then figuring out the keybinding used by the SDL
-version.
-
-Galapix comes with a number of sub commands, allowing the user to either
-view images or pre-generate thumbnails. The most basic command is:
-
-  build/galapix.gtk view [FILES]...
-
-Which displays the given files. To pregenerate only the small
-thumbnails you use:
-
-  build/galapix.gtk thumbgen [FILES]...
-
-To generate not only the small thumbnails, but all tiles you use:
-
-  build/galapix.gtk prepare [FILES]...
-
-The other available commands are mostly for debugging and have little
-actualy use.
-
-Via the -d flag you can specifiy a database, so that you can have
-different databases for different files. If you give an empty string
--d "", no database file will be created, the database will resist in
-memory only.
-
-As a special gimmick you can run:
-
-  build/galapix.gtk view buildin://mandelbrot
-
-To get a classic Mandelbrot set.
-
-
-Keyboard Commands for Galapix SDL:
-==================================
-
-Key       | Function
-----------+------------------------------
-F11       | toggle fullscreen
-t         | toggle trackball mode (mouse is grabbed and cursor hidden)
-1 	  | regular image layout
-2 	  | tight image layout
-3 	  | random image layout
-4         | relayout images in a non-overlapping form
-5         | layout images in a tight fashion
-g 	  | toggle grid
-h         | reset zoom and scroll
-m         | switch to move/resize tools
-p         | switch pan/zoom tools
-b         | toggle background color
-i         | only display selected images, remove the rest
-n         | random shuffle images
-s         | sort images alphabetically
-shift+s   | sort images alphabetically in reverse order
-page up   | increase gamma
-page down | increase gamma
-space     | print the currently visible images to stdout 
-delete    | remove selected images from workspace
-home      | zoom in
-end       | zoom out
-shift     | rotate the view by moving the mouse while shift is hold down
-left      | rotate the view 90
-right     | rotate the view -90
-up        | reset view rotation to 0 degree
-escape    | exit galapix
-
-
-SpaceNavigator Support:
-=======================
-
-galapix supports the Space Navigator via the Open Source spacenavd daemon:
-
-  * http://spacenav.sourceforge.net
-
-The 3Dconnexion's official 3dxsrv daemon is not supported, neither is
-directly reading from /dev/input/eventX.
-
-
-Issues:
-=======
-
-  * Galapix is very picky about I/O, so if you have updatedb running in
-    the background or other indexing software, it can get very slow.
-
-  * Incremental loading is not fully optimized, so you see more
-    artifacts then you should.
-
-  * Running multiple instances of galapix at once can lead to:
-
-terminate called after throwing an instance of 'SQLiteError'
-  what():  SQLiteStatement::~SQLiteStatement: column filename is not unique
-Aborted
