Hi Martin,

From `man fim`:

   "-d {framebuffer device}, --device {framebuffer device} Framebuffer  device to use. Default is the one your vc is mapped to (as in fbi)."

did you try it ?

is it (or would it be) possible to specify the device I want to display image on. I have a Raspberry Pi with Touch display and HDMI monitor connected. By default fim displays images on Touch display. I want to display the image on HDMI monitor. I tried to specify framebuffer device but there is only /dev/fb0 available.

There is omxplayer which is able to play video on HDMI monitor using --display option. But unfortunately omxplayer is not able to display images :/.
