OK. I purged mime-support, removed /etc/mailcap, reinstalled
mime-support, and /etc/mailcap is the same as before, so that
wasn’t it.

I do have some KDE stuff installed, but use IceWM; I only
start single KDE applications like kontact when needed,
and do not run any “desktop environment”.

I think this is the actual bug – lynx ought to honour the
user’s settings. I am still puzzled that lynx has anything
to do with a “mail”cap file. This is totally illogical,
unexpected, and whatnot.

Maybe, but that doesn’t change the fact that I installed
xloadimage and am using it (from the command line and
from midnight commander) with great success.

Sorry,  I’m annoyed today and you came by as an Arch user. These are the
perfect victims for any crime against humanity, like  systemd,  feminism
or social democracy.
