No. That's the Windows way of installing software.
On a Linux distro, you search your package manager.
On a Debian-based distro, that would be
Code:
apt search links
I'm going to go out on a limb and say you can just
Code:
apt update && apt install links

Your last 4 consecutive posts could have been one post only. There's an edit button, you know.

No, thank you. I break my posts into separate logical units much like procedures in a shell script. A large posts with multiple thoughts is harder to process based on my experience online.

start small, only add what you need for best results.

IMHO: (opinions best when yours) there's distros built on Debian, and Debian, but I haven't distro hopped for many years so what do I know...

for me sid because I like a working pull out faucet sprayers to the sandbox, in my metaphorical kitchen

Not sure. I installed the default latest-greatest Antix a month ago with whatever default window manager it came with.
I inherited an old desktop and trying to revive it. I knew it would be a challenge and AntiX is my attempt number 4 or 5.
The machine is not for me, I have something much faster multibooting Fedora and Ubuntu.

Lightweight desktops also work well on my old lap-weight, Ratpoison is my favorite.
This is interesting but I don't need a text-based browser, rather a minimalist full size one (with Graphical user interface).

Try:
Code:
echo $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
my T420 it gives KDE( not usually too lightweight) and if I run Virtualbox where I've installed a lighter set of software with Debian-sid it is:
Code:
echo $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
LXQt

Not supported Edit: Lost the Kazahakase links in my post. No matter. It is a dead browser also.

uzbl


https://github.com/uzbl/uzbl

Back when I used to run these on my IBM T23 in AntiX 8.5. They were supported then.
But like everything else in the 32 bit world.
Most folks lost interest.

links2 and Dillo already come in AntiX Full iso.

Code:
$ apt search links2
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
links/buster 2.21.1-1.0antix1 amd64
  Web browser running in text mode

links2/buster,now 2.21.1-1.0antix1 amd64 [installed]
  Web browser running in both graphics and text mode
<snip>
harry@biker:~
$ apt search dillo
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
<snip>
dillo/stable,now 3.0.5-5 amd64 [installed]
  Small and fast web browser
<snip>
So no need to install those
If Anti's link don't help ya. I don't know what to advise for 2021.

Links has a graphical mode which is very nice to use. It doesn't do javascript but it handles simple graphics well and loads pages extremely fast.

How you install it depends on the distro. AFAIR Debian distros ship both a text and a gui version with the latter being called links2. AntiX should have it already.

If it isn't provided as is, it's easy to build from source. You just have to configure it with --enable-graphics.

@jamison20000e. You mean Dillo? I guess you were thinking "that—whatisitsname—that sounds like dildo, but not quite"?

@etcetera --
if rokytnji or anticapitalista cannot help you, I'm not sure who can.
Meanwhile, have you looked at NetSurf? Didn't like it, myself.
