How do I browse pictures using links2 inside of terminal? Is it possible?

I want to stay inside the terminal. links2 -g opens a new window, bringing me out of the terminal.

Any solution?

Or maybe some other browser... w3m wont work.. Thanks

    w3m works if you install the recommended w3m-img package. – muru Dec 5 '16 at 10:55

Links2 will generally start up with a blank page. The text in the menu bar also doesn't show up, which can be confusing, since it looks like an almost completely blank window

To work with the blank page, you can press G and enter a URL to visit. You can also click the lighter-colored menu bar at the very top to display the menus.

To avoid the blank page, run links2 -g https://www.google.com (or some other site), which initially loads that web page rather than a blank page.

  • @SilvijaMilovac The terminal is not made for browsing pictures. – vidarlo Jul 17 '18 at 6:26

Maybe the recently hyped Browsh? It uses Firefox backend and works in text mode.
