-l, --library

--start-from-desktop

start using the desktop_start_dir as path

--slideshow

start in slideshow mode

--slideshow-delay SLIDESHOW_DELAY

set the slideshow delay

-g, --geometry GEOMETRY

--temp-basedir

use a temporary basedir

--config FILE

use FILE as local configuration file instead of $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/vimiv/vimivrc and ~/.vimiv/vimivrc.

--debug

All capitals negate the setting, so e.g. -B means do not display the statusbar. For the long version prepend no-, e.g. --no-bar.
