    I have OS X 10.2.8 and want to install both Lynx and Links text browsers. Unfortunately, I am not skilled at using the terminal.

    I've tried installing the packages found at:

    And when I type: "lynx" or "links", I get "command not found" for both.

    The same error when I cd to usr/local/bin/ and try from there.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You need X11 for Links.

    just fink it

    You really should install fink. It makes it very easy to install unix/linux software on osx and keeps it organized in a seperate directory, which i like. After following the instructions for installing fink, getting lynx and links is as easy as 'fink install lynx' and 'fink install links' You can also use apt-get to install binaries rather than compiling from source.

    There is a whole world of great console and X11 programs availiable through fink.

    PS you don't need X-windows for links (a console web browser)
