Microsoft Windows, Links browser and X Windows
My question is probably odd and advance apologies if this is the wrong place for it, but I donít know where else to turn.
I am a Windows user and although I have experimented with Linux, I have very little understanding of it and have never succeeded in getting it to work for me. After various attempts, I got discouraged and basically gave up. Because of my location, I am stuck on dial-up and that has also been a problem, since it simply isnít possible for me to download huge packages, which most things these days seem to be.
Recently, I have been using a Windows version of Links to achieve acceptable browsing speeds. The text-only version works very well, but is limited in several ways and I have been trying to get the graphics version (links-g.exe) working under Windows. From what I have read, I understand that I need a Windows version of X Windows in order to do this. I have downloaded and installed both cygwin-x (took most of a day) and xming but I cannot figure out how to get links-g to work with either one. I seem to just be going around in circles. Iím sure it is something simple but I cannot find any documentation that clearly explains what I need to do. Everything I can find seems to assume an understanding of Linux that I do not have.
Would anyone be willing to explain, in baby steps, what I actually have to do to get Links-g to work under Windows? Your reward will be my eternal gratitude.
