As for Ristretto, i really don't like and/or (want to) use it myself. I 
find it unintuitive and featureless in the wrong places. The program i 
currently use and am quite fond of is GPicView:

(Lastest version 0.1.9, version in hardy repo is 0.1.7)

It is tiny -- about half the size installed of Ristretto -- and desktop 
agnostic (only pure gtk+ required). It also feels more stable than 
Ristretto, which crashes now and then on my system when i browse through 
images quickly.

GPicView supports drag&drop, which is something i really miss in 
Ristretto as well.
