3. Neofetch with images

Displays image in neofetch instead of ASCII characters.

After installing Neofetch via your package manager, also install the w3m package, examples:

emerge w3m # Gentoo, Funtoo, Sabayon, ...
apt install w3m # Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, ...
pacman -S w3m # Arch, Manjaro, Antergos, ...

Then edit the neofetch configuration file: vim ~/.config/neofetch/config.conf then look for the line with the term: image_backend, if you can’t find it add it to w3m: image_backend="w3m". Also change the line with the term image_source and assign your image path: image_source="/path/to/image.png", if you want your Wallpaper to appear, give the word wallpaper: image_source="wallpaper"

Turn the neofetch.
