Try running "apt-cache search image ascii" and similar searches. You'll probably find what you want in the output. Or at least something similar that you can use.

It called zgv, I think. The z is certain, the g is near certain. It uses old libriaries so the image always a bit bitty. If you get 4 wildly distorted images/screen and fix this then please post solution.
