    Urlgrabbing/openurl in irssi over ssh


    My connection is really unstable, therefore I decided to run irssi in screen over ssh on another computer. I use aterm, and when people post urls in irssi I always have a hard time trying to open/copy the urls so I can run them on my computer. I've got openurl.pl working in irssi, but it opens a terminal based web browser which is fine, but not with images.

    Anyway I could do a url grab or whatever, you know... copy the last said url in the window so I can paste it in a firefox window on my own computer.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    OK, got a script called openurl.pl working in irssi, and it opens webpages in the terminal with w3m... when I install w3m-img I can see images in the terminal, but only on my computer. Somehow the w3m on the server doesnt let me see images... Anybody have an explenation?
