Unhappy How to show images in lynx?


I'm using slackware's text interface (no GUI). And I'm using lynx to surf the internet, but right now I cannot see the images.

Anyone knows how to enable lynx to show the images?

Lynx is a text only browser.

here you go : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynx_%28web_browser%29
Quote:
Lynx cannot inherently display various types of non-text content on the web, such as images and video,[2] but it can launch external programs to handle it, such as an image viewer or a video player.

i seriously doubt but:
a. you can look into designing one
b. check into nvidia's codecs - ( i vaguely) remember that it can play video in terminal . ( but maybe i was drinking that night %) ).

I think links will only run graphics in X. From links features web page
Quote:
Links runs in graphics mode (mouse required) on X Window System (UN*X, Cygwin), SVGAlib, Linux Framebuffer, OS/2 PMShell, AtheOS GUI
Links runs in text mode (mouse optional) on UN*X console, ssh/telnet virtual terminal, vt100 terminal, xterm, and virtually any other text terminal. Mouse is supported for GPM, xterm, and OS/2. Links supports colors on terminal.
