FuturePerfect,

The Links2 you're after is available as a .pet, as Barry said:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-2/links-2.1pre21.pet

It's just not the latest version available, which is:

http://links.twibright.com/download/links-2.1pre32.tar.bz2

Thanks again muggins:

I must have missed this links-2 PET--I tried to look in all the many sources pointed to in Puppy package manager; I don't have the Puppy Software Installer in--not sure it's OK in Puppy 2.

After downloading the links-2 PET you pointed me to and installing it, the PET install said it was missing (in usr/bin/links ) the library libSDL-1.2.so.0

After I searched in all the Puppy package manager links I did not find a PET or pup that contained this library--one link showed a pup but it was no longer there; another link pointed me to the library home page, but I need a PET or pup to install.

So, I will stop this quest. I doubt graphical links-2 would be any better or faster than browsers I already mentioned above.

Thanks again for all your help.

yes,

it's provided by the package linked by ttuuxxx. I'm surprised that it needs libSDL though.

Thank you, guys! I love you! Links in graphic mode is runing smoothly on this old Pentium I. It is faster than any other browser. Gmail is working, just a little ugly, but... What the...!, it's a Pentium I at 166MHz, man! Incredible, love it.


P.S.: I'm not being able of writing this type of characters: áéíóúü. A shame. ¿Compiling issue? They are indispensable in formal/laboral environment, in the spanish world.

Links uses console fonts and console keyboard map when it runs in text or framebuffer console. You must configure (and probably install) console font and keymap. Look in "/usr/share/kbd" directory, there are console fonts and keymaps
which are currently installed on your system.
When Links runs as X application (both in text or grapic mode), it uses X-console
fonts. This font must be installed (for example in /usr/X11/lib/X11//fonts/misc) and
configured by adding a string in /root/.Xdefaults file.
Also is recommended to install correct locale (see /usr/lib/locale) and X-locale (see /usr/X11/lib/X11/locale) for Your system.

Skipper, you'll get more help if you start a new thread about your keyboard problem. Smile

Oh, I'm realy sorry. I just wont to say that links works "almost" perfect and fast. My goal is to provide a useful Pentium I for a family bussiness, and I need that my father can understand and use it quickly and intuitively. Links graphic doesn't fit these conditions, because the buttons, the text box, copy and paste, backgrounds, etc., someones don't even exist as them. Dillo would be a better option, but many important sites doesn't work. I though I will work more on Dillo, or still looking for a light and fast browser! Thanks for the advices and for all you teach to us, this community is awsome. Greetings!
