I need help in using kitty and chafa from fast fetch, I am a newbie so, I dont know where to look at, can someone help me?

Hi there, welcome to the forum!
I don't know what kind of help would be necessary.
Fastfetch is normally launched from the configuration file of the shell you use, I think it has no direct relation with the terminal emulator in use.
Just wanted to say hello and provide a couple of links.
The Arch wiki is always a good starting point, and it has a page for Kitty, small, but with some configuration hints.
Nothing available for Chafa, but I see the Arch package site refers to this page as "upstream site":

And, of course, for fastfetch information:

I hope this helps...

I wanted to change the logo to fire dragon, there is nothing to edit in fastfetch config file, but running through fastfetch -h provided me with the option to change logo, so I edited the fish config file to get my desired logo, but now that I've seen more options, I want to experiment with them and I can't find anything related to kitty, chafa, sixel options.

Install fastfetch-git

sudo pacman -S garuda-fastfetch-git

and use in fish config

fastfetch -l garudadragon

yes, I changed the logo already, now I want to explore the other options. These options:

--logo-type : set the type of the logo given. Must be auto, builtin, file, raw, sixel, kitty or chafa.
--logo-width : set the width of the logo (in characters), if it is an image
--logo-height : set the height of the logo (in characters), if it is an image
--logo-color-[1-9] : overwrite a color in the logo
--logo-padding : set the padding on the left and the right of the logo
--logo-padding-left : set the padding on the left of the logo
--logo-padding-right : set the padding on the right of the logo
--logo-print-remaining <?value>: weather to print the remaining logo, if it has more lines than modules to display
--sixel : short for --logo-type sixel --logo
--kitty : short for --logo-type kitty --logo
--chafa : short for --logo-type chafa --logo
--file : short for --logo-type file --logo
--raw : short for --logo-type raw --logo

For this and the other options I think you should anyway refer to the upstream github.
For sure, if anyone here has good hints they will arrive.
But it seems to me too application-specific...

These emulators have basic graphics rendering capabilities, i.e. you can print a crude photo or similar in the terminal. Using these flags allows you to make the Fastfetch logo an image (rendered with the respective emulator's protocol) instead of the normal ASCII art. Is that what you want?

If you are trying to use this feature and can't get it to work, you are going to have to provide more details about the specific configuration you are trying so we can see what is going on.

Obviously executing the command in the referenced emulator is a prerequisite for using its image rendering protocol (you cannot use Gnome terminal, for example).


Yes, i want to know how to use these commands, can you provide with some examples please

Just follow the documentation you noted above, put your setup into your ~/.config/fastfetch/config.conf, and see how it goes. If you have trouble getting it to work, like I said you will need to add specific details describing your efforts into the thread so we can try to identify any mistakes in your configuration.
