Emacs-w3m uses external commands specified by the variable
`w3m-content-type-alist' to browse remote files like:
But you'd like to browse local files, such as
, don't you? By default, emacs-w3m uses a Lisp function specified
by the `w3m-local-find-file-function' variable for those files.
To let emacs-w3m use external commands even for browsing local
files, simply set this to nil as follows:
(setq w3m-local-find-file-function nil)
By the way, "gv" and "xpdf" should be set as the viewers for ps
files and pdf files in the `w3m-content-type-alist' variable by
default, if you have those commands installed in PATH (of which
the value is inherited into the `exec-path' variable in Emacs).
So, you don't seem to need to customize it.
