     A long time ago I came across a magazine that had a little blip
about a console web browser, with table support, named Links.  I put the
thought of downloading it on the back burner because I was still trying
to figure out how to use Monkey's default console web browser, Lynx.
Months later (May, 2002) I finally got around to compiling and installing
Links version 0.97.  I must admit that I'm thoroughly impressed, and I
wish I had installed it sooner.

     Okay, enough babbling and on to the install process.  First of all,
download Links from artax.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~mikulas/links/download/.
Next, unpack the .tar.gz file like you would any other Monkey Linux
software package (review software packages tutorial).  Finally, follow
these directions to compile and install Links:

     cd /links-0.97       CHANGE TO LINKS SOURCE DIRECTORY
     sh ./configure       CONFIGURE LINKS IN THE BOURNE SHELL
     make                 COMPILE LINKS
     make install         INSTALL LINKS
     make clean           REMOVE LINKS OBJECT FILES
     make distclean       REMOVE FILES CONFIGURE CREATED

     Two files are installed, /usr/local/bin/links and 
/usr/local/man/man1/links.1.  Don't bother trying to view the Links man
page, because Monkey isn't equipped with the necessary software to build
it.  To run Links just type the 'links' command.  To view/hide the menu
bar press the 'Esc' key.  When run in X, the web-links are mouse enabled. 

                                                                    [ top ]
