Building from source
You can easily compile feh from source, e.g. to try out the latest changes in the git repository. All you need is GNU make, a C compiler (gcc/clang) and some libraries.
Example for Debian:
First, install the dependencies:
apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev libx11-dev libxt-dev libimlib2-dev
Then, either get the latest tarball:
tar -xjf feh-2.17.tar.bz2
or check out the git version:
git clone git://git.finalrewind.org/feh || git clone git://github.com/derf/feh.git
Now, compile and install feh:
sudo make install
