If I am reading this correctly, you want to surf the web using a browser from the terminal.

You can start a graphical browser from the terminal by typing the correct command (e.g., firefox), but I'm guessing that's no what you want.

The two major text browsers are lynx and links. They are incapable of displaying images or media, but you can surf text and download files.

Links in the Ubuntu repos; lynx apparently is not.

Are you saying that you want to set your Internet connection up via the terminal? If so, you're going to need to tell us how about your setup (e.g. wired connection, wireless, ...).

I'm puzzled. Downloading a Youtube video is not the same thing as installing software.

Is there a proxy involved? If so, you have to bypass it.

The below applies to apt-get; not sure about other applications.


Edit / create the file /etc/apt/apt.conf

Code:
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://[[user][:pass]@]host[:port]/";
Edit to your needs. The red italic part can be omitted if no username/password is required.

we have to just edit some file ....
first open the terminal and type sudo gedit etc/bash.bashrc

just add this

export http_proxy="http://userassword@proxyort"
export ftp_proxy="http://userassword@proxyort"

and in this just add your username, password, proxy and port

SAVE IT

and again open the terminal and type sudo gedit etc/apt/apt.cnf

just add this

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://userassword@proxyort";

and in this just add your username, password, proxy and port

SAVE IT

If you put the code between code tags ([code] and ]/code], that problem automatically solves itself

Code:
export http_proxy="http://user:password@proxy:port"
export ftp_proxy="http://user:password@proxy:port"
If I'm not mistaken, you don't need the above two, only the other one that you posted. But I might be mistaken although I don't use the above two
