Comments for ELinks

25 Sep 2009 13:33 martintxo

I try to reach some elinks-browser developer by email, but I don't achieve it. I sent some emails to the elinks-dev mailing list (http://linuxfromscratch.org/mailman/listinfo/elinks-dev/) where I'm subscribed as Martintxo. I send it too to the Jonas Fonseca and Kalle Olavi Niemitalo email accounts. But I don't get any response.

I made a update of the Elinks-0.12pre5 es.po spanish translation. Mostly I update all the fuzzy translations, and translate some other short sentences.

I put the updated es.po here: http://www.sindominio.net/~martintxo/Elinks-0.12pre5.es.po.gz

Greetings. Martintxo.

binary downloads
I can download binary files in IE or Firefox by just typing the fully qualified reference in the address bar. I can't figure out how to download binary files with elinks. Can someone help me out?

Thanks in advance.

You can do that. By default, it is bound to Ctrl-T ...

excellent software
I am very happy with elinks. It is my everyday

browser and I only use FireFox when I need to see

the graphics. I have not found a single thing

wrong with elinks.

I do have one suggestion. I think it would be nice

if textareas invoked an editor, in the same way

that a mailto link invokes an email client.

Thanks for your good work.

We work intensively on this, it's getting much betters in these days in fact ;-).

Could you elaborate, please? There should be no problem with ^E if you are using standalone ELinks instances. That can be trivially accomplished by starting elinks with -no-connect parameter (see elinks -help for full description of instances) - I agree that it is still very inconvient, though ;-(. A better solution is being prepared, some other things have higher priority now, though.

Elinks is really pretty fantastic - my everyday browser.

Couple of complaints though - some documentation for the config file would be nice, so I can get zgv working, and ps2txt, and so on. And secondly - please get the ^Xe external text editor function working! I still have go into klunky old Lynx occasionally so I can use vim in text boxes.

Certainly recommended, though.

Very strange.. if you mean support for menus etc, do you have gpm and ncurses installed? I would be glad for more detailed bug report sent to pasky@ji.cz. If you mean support for cut'n'paste, try to press shift when you press mouse buttons.

Great browser
I love elinks, much better than lynx IMHO. My only
complaint is that mouse support only works in X,
not on the console. Anyone know how to fix this?
