"The Framebuffer is dead, Long Live the Framebuffer" xorg-x12

the framebuffer
The title is taken from the xorg x12 page, but it was a fitting title after days of going down a dark path of "the framebuffer". It might be mysterious to some, "the framebuffer", the "linux console", some might even try to hide it alltogether and try to deny its existence. Others display it proudly.
"splash" "quiet" is probably something alot of people have seen, but yet might not know what it means. If you are one...

Viewing Images With Elinks

Posted 07-30-2010 at 01:33 PM by uxrs75

Programmes: elinks, fbida
Files to edit: ~/.elinks/elinks.conf

Start by installing a suitable image viewer. I use fbida, as it provides both a framebuffer-, and X-based image viewer (fbi and ida respectively).

Next, add some MIME types to elinks.conf.

set mime.extension.jpg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.jpeg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.png="image/png"
set mime.extension.gif="image/gif"
