Fixing Lf Image Previews

Tag: Linux ยท Technology

If any of you use LARBS, you may have noticed that lf image previews have stopped working. Lf also hangs after previewing 2 text files, just showing “loading…”

The reason for this is because ueberzug is unmaintained and will hang after repeat calls from scope. I fixed this by installing ueberzugpp from the AUR; it’s a drop-in replacement and works without any configuration.

Hopefully this helps. I’ll make a pull request soon.
