Hm. Does this work:
./bin/domterm image doc/dt1.png
Another thing to try:
bin/domterm --below new
If image works but '--below new' doesn't, I wonder if it could be Linux-dependency
in the use of Unix Domain sockets. Some domterm sub-commands are executed
directly by the domterm process with the specified sub-commands; others look
for the domterm server that was started by the initial (terminal-starting) command.
The communication is handled by domain sockets.

I meant just plain:
That is supposed to use the default system browser.

Looks like bug (in server.c) failing to quote/escape file names
(specifically spaces). I'll look into it.
