It's certainly a stupid question, but maybe…
On GNU/Linux, is there a way to display an image on a machine without X server installed (I mean something better than libcaca).
Or if not possible, temporary launching an X server with a simple image viewer which stop when closing this viewer 🤔

I would like to test to work only with a terminal, but sometime, you need to see an image

There are some alternatives for seeing images in TUI, such as viu and fim.

@olamundo yes, cool, fim works on local tty and viu is useful thru ssh !
