     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
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 ]
