Hi Lars,

according to the wiki entry [1]  *Evince* is a document
viewer<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Document_viewer>
 for PDF <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Document_Format>,
PostScript<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostScript>
, DjVu <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DjVu>,
TIFF<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tagged_Image_File_Format>
, XPS <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_XML_Paper_Specification> and
DVI<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Device_independent_file_format>

GpicView is the default image viewer in lubuntu and it opens .png's quite
happily.

Regards,

Phill.
