Just started to use w3m yesterday and have a question about viewing images. Inline images show up but i cant view a full screen image. For example, if you go here and go to the All Things Unix forum, then look at the "Its august already" thread. There are thumbnails of desktop screenshots. The thumnails show up fine, but if i click on it it should show me a full size version. I get some net activity, but nothing happens in the end. If i try in X it works. Can anyone get it to work?
Also, someone told me they use zgv for their image viewer but if i put 'zgv' in the 'externel command to view images' box in options no images show up what so ever.
Maybe someone that uses w3m in frambuffer can help out -thanks
In X I double click and a full-screen xv pops up with the image in it. In console, I get nothing either. zgv is a separate program - do you have that? I don't have it, so can't test it. So download zgv, I guess.
PS - a direct link would *really* help.
-- See - somebody posted before me while I was hunting down the link.
I was guessing he thought zgv was an option on w3m. He obviously has a browser because he's having trouble with one. I don't use it regularly myself but if I ever fubar X or Mozilla, that's my backup choice by far.
Y'know, come to think of it, I'm not sure. I think it's all source-based but you type some 'emerge' command and it sort of compiles it for you. And as far as being able to accept rpm's and such, I don't know if they can or not. Like in Slack I can compile from source or 'installpkg' or use an rpm and 'rpm2tgz' it. Not sure how Gentoo works.
Just incase anyone is interested. Run this command as normal user
echo "image/* ; zgv %s" > ~/.w3m/mailcap
Then when you want to see the image full size it wil appear on console 7 or 8. w3m is actually pretty nice. Links2 -g is nice also but destroys my eyes for some reason. I dont understand how people can stay in the framebuffer for long periods of time since it is brutal on the eyes.
