Try to write in a less flowery style.
What does "tap onto an image" mean ?

I seems that you want to use mc to select & view <graphicFiles> ?
And that you hope to use a utility called zgv ?

So to confirm that zgv is available/usable you could try:
<zgv's-path/zgv> <path&nameOfSomeSuitableFileImage>
Of course, using mc this needs only a few key strokes.

Try to 'move forward' from a known good state towards your destination.
Eg. can you view 'any' of the special file formats: *.doc, *.pdf, *gif ..etc,
  by using mc's <F3> or <enter> ?
