Puppy version Lupu 5.20 Links Browser compile notes

Links home page: http://links.twibright.com/

Download page: http://links.twibright.com/download.php

I downloaded this file: links-2.3pre2.tar.gz

Build commands

./configure --enable-graphics --enable-javascript
make

make built one file - 4604704 2011-06-07 21:31 links

Install is manual, copy links to directory in path, such as
cp links /usr/bin

Notes

Links has some options not included with full size browsers

Check links --help for a long list of options

I recommend renaming links to links2, or links-bin or what you
choose, then make a script with your options called links to run it

For graphics mode, the command is links -g

Escape key to bring down menu and it has mouse support, if
you don't get mouse support post back. It is possible I installed
it separately from Lupu 5.20 default files

Code:
---------------------------------------------------------
Configuration results:

UTF-8 terminal:         YES
GPM support:            YES
SSL support:            OPENSSL
Supported compression:  ZLIB BZIP2
Graphics enabled:       YES
Graphics drivers:       SVGALIB FB DIRECTFB X
Image formats:          GIF PNG XBM JPEG TIFF
---------------------------------------------------------

Thanks much, Bruce B, for the insights.

As a quick addition, for those migrating from Windows, export your IE Favorites, then copy the Bookmark.html to Puppy. From there, with text editior, open the default Bookmarks.htm in /root/.links. Delete all entries.

Then open the imported Favorites, Bookmark.html with same text editor. Copy-n-paste its innards into links' empty Bookmark.htm.

The formatting, etc. of the two files play nice with each other, and you'll have all your bookmarks along with their directories.

It occurs to me now (but not before; it's too early for me to be typing), that a user could simply rename the file Bookmark.html to Bookmark.htm, and preclude copy-n-pasting.

Though perhaps the files are slightly different in some way that I don't know.

(As an aside, for some reason, I can't edit my posts in this thread)

DaveS, if this is a question, and you want help, then say at want point it failed. In other words - be more specific.

I note on the page AJ referenced "w3m is a text-based web browser w3m can be used as a text formatting tool which typesets HTML into plain text."
