Sorry for the lack of a useful error message.

You need w3m and its image previewing program. How to get it depends on the operating system. First of all, try installing w3m. On debian or ubuntu, additionally try to install "w3m-img" package. On gentoo, you have to write this in your shell config file:

export W3MIMGDISPLAY_PATH=/usr/libexec/w3m/w3mimgdisplay
