Hi, i can't view the preview images from images files like .jpg on ranger. How can i resolve this problem on manjaro i3 ? ... thanks and bye
Are you using
urxvt as the default terminal emulator?
ranger uses by default the
w3m console web browser for creating the image previews, which should be installed by default. Any chance you uninstalled
You can check if
w3m is installed by running
pacman -Qs w3m
Hi, yes is istalled.
This Wiki article might help you further:
Did you make any changes to the default
ranger configuration file? I'm asking because image previews should be shown by default using
urxvt without the need of extra configurations.
To further isolate the problem you might consider installing nnn to see if it will allow you to view your images. I use that with sakura (terminal) successfully.
Thanks a lot bill_t, now work it ... bye
Could you, please, tell how you fixed it? I have the same problem since the last update, but can't find the cause... I'm using

Hi quantized, i followed the instructions on the github posted by bill_t , i haved to change rxvt-unicode to rxvt-unicode-pixbuf and make a little change on the ~/.config/ranger/rc* file.
Thanks for your reply,
So, you're using
urxvt as the
rxvt-unicode from Manjaro repos does not support
pixbuf, and I just didn't want to use the one on the AUR. My guess is that the recent update to Python 3.8 might be the issue, since
ueberzug is a Python script and most packages are still based on Python 3.7.
