No; Slackware has seejpeg (which hasn't worked in years on newer 
hardware).  SlackBuilds.org (SBo, which isn't (official) Slackware) has 
fbida & fbv, neither which can go to previous or next images anymore, 
apparently, which I reported years ago to the maintainers and one or 
more of the programmers but never heard back.  That's why I'm looking 
for new stuff, and they're all called terminal image viewers but aren't: 
only X terminal viewers!  There are a couple other framebuffer ones, but 
they don't seem to take input after you display an image.
