I have been able to preview images in ranger. But for some reason I don't have file preview. Not for any type of files. Not for compressed files either. I'm running linux mint and ranger v1.7.1. How do I preview files?
preview_files [bool] <zp> Preview files in the preview column?
zp in v1.7.1, it works
what I did
git clone https://github.com/ranger/ranger.git cd ranger git reset --hard v1.7.1 python ranger.py -c # -c for clean config
