Description of problem:
If xloadimage is installed, the xview command is used to view images, not xli as
in the lynx config file. You should also put in the config file that the
xloadimage package should be installed to install xview.

Comment 1 Joseph Shraibman 2002-11-27 02:08:48 UTC
That is you should put a comment in the config flie that the
xloadimage package should be installed to install xview.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-12-23 12:18:47 UTC

... I think, I'm not at that computer right now. Maybe when lynx is built
a command should be passed into the configure script that says the image
viewer should be xview instead of xli, I don't know.
Have you ever tried loading an image in lynx?  It won't work because it
tries to use xli and linux uses xview, not xli.

For me it uses eog by default.
