viewing images on the command line


Hi All,
I am looking for a way to view images on the command line without using X*******. Is there any command utility to do this. I am telnetting to a Linux RH 7.0 box.

Thanks in advance

DA

someone asked this the other day, have a look for fbi fbv or fbview for example. you do need to be running a framebuffer tho, which is fair enough i think.

I've never worked with framebuffers but what acidkewpie said would probably work. But that would only work if you are physically logged into the machine itself. You mentioned you are accessing the box through telnet. It's not possible with telnet because of the way it works.
Unless you'd get a really advanced telnet client and some advanced telnet server to handle it. But that's what the xserver does for you. It's possible to run xsessions from a remote location even if your client computer is running windows. So I think you should be looking for a solution in that direction instead of getting it done through telnet.

haha, yeah helps if i read the question properly...

well the only thing you could possibly do over telnet it use somethign like aaview which can draw pictures in ascii, but that's not too useful on a small scale. teletn is a VERY basic protocol
