I have tried
sudo apt-get purge ranger and then reinstalling it, but I have not been able to find anything that works. My python version is
First install a terminal that can render images. Right now the most advanced terminal is probably "Kitty".
apt install kitty
Then you'll need to install a new version of ranger. Make sure you've got rid of all the old stuff first.
sudo apt get --purge remove "ranger*"
Then add a new
pip3 install --user ranger
Now you simply need to enable previews. Edit
~/.config/ranger/rc.conf, and add the following
set preview_images true set preview_image_method kitty
