I'm able to get a 9.22 build working and have regained the image functionality.

Needed jeffreykl's advice on the build script edit to get past compile error and then add "Attic" to the path of the upstream source as these appear to be archived in that fashion.

@biell I tried your compile and i get the same behavior, sadly.

Here is the example printf command people can use to test: printf '\033]20;/usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/firefox.png;10x100+50+50:op=keep-aspect\a'

Here is an example w3mimgdisplay command people can use to test: clear; ( echo -e "2;3;\n0;1;100;100;0;0;0;0;0;0;/usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/firefox.png\n4;\n3;" ; sleep 1) | /usr/lib/w3m/w3mimgdisplay

If someone is willing to try my compile and let me know if things behave the same, then that might be helpful:

Well, my GCC 11 theory is shot. I just did a full system update and am running GCC 11 myself now, and printf '\033]20;/usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/firefox.png;10x100+50+50:op=keep-aspect\a' still works just fine for me. Back to the drawing board.

@richese Yes, I use the w3m method. Frankly, i wasnt aware that i could use urxvt as a preview method since w3m has always worked for me.

@biell i'm using the latest gcc which is 11.1. here are my config.h and config.log files:

@gen0 do you use the w3m image preview method in ranger?

The image preview started to work for me in ranger after I changed the preview_images_method in ranger's rc.conf from urxvt to the default w3m.

urxvt method uses the escape sequence, same as the printf command. w3m uses the /usr/lib/w3m/w3mimgdislpay command which probably uses a different way.

So it seems that only the escape sequences are affected.

@biell, it is a problem for me as well and I have gcc 11 installed.

unlike @Richese, i can still preview images in ranger and i can also draw a bg image in urxvt with: "urxvt -pixmap "/path/to/image.png" but i am unable to draw a bg image with the xterm command: "printf "\e]20;/path/to/image.png;\a".

Last known version for me was 9.22 but i am unable to use that due to the perl error stated by @Nicolas7.

@voguelike, can you tell me if you are using core/gcc 10 or a different gcc from aur? Could you also send me your config.h and config.log files?

voguelike commented on 2021-06-23 06:19

@biall i'm running into the same problem as @richese. not really sure why it's happening since i can still see image previews in ranger, but i cannot use printf to show images in urxvt anymore.
