Re: Mc Digest, Vol 49, Issue 3

So is the problem only when you use zgv via mc ?
Can you use any other 'image viewer' eg. xpdf on other file formats ?

Do you know how to diagnose with: top, pstree, ..etc., in
case zgv consumes a lot of resources ?

But you'd expect the same resource usage if you did <path>/zgv <file> ?
And it that's OK, it seems that the problem is in the small step of mc
passing the image-file to the viewer to use.
Eg. the details of the syntax of the relevant  mc.ext file.

Saith Chris Glur:
Try to write in a less flowery style.
What does "tap onto an image" mean ?

Dunno what it means to you, but to me it means moving the cursor (the
moving differently-coloured bar) onto a file name and hitting Enter.

I seems that you want to use mc to select & view <graphicFiles> ?
And that you hope to use a utility called zgv ?

No. I AM using an utility called zgv. The underlying trouble I referred
to earlier is that after a long period of using mc on my system (a
rather trailing-edge Linux), output from certain programs begins to
disappear when are launched by opening a file with the Enter key.
Eventually, things wedge shut and I have to exit and restart mc.

So to confirm that zgv is available/usable you could try:
<zgv's-path/zgv> <path&nameOfSomeSuitableFileImage>
Of course, using mc this needs only a few key strokes.

Try to 'move forward' from a known good state towards your destination.
Eg. can you view 'any' of the special file formats: *.doc, *.pdf, *gif
  by using mc's <F3> or <enter> ?

Easily. I did compile and install the needed stuff. Except for .etc -
never seen any.
