    Getting Graphical Links to work


    Here's my problem, I'm trying to get 'links -g' command to work. The problem is that whenever I do that as a regular user, svgalib says some crap about I/O permission. Not sure what file I should be looking at to give permission for regular users to get access to.
    Oh, I also am not really sure ho to configure my mouse so that I can use it with the graphical links browser. Right now, all I get is the mouse flickering when I start links in graphical mode (as root).
    Just in case this information is needed, I'm using Slackware 10.2.

    Any help would be great!
    Thanks.

    I had the same type trouble after compiling links with graphics but got it working fine. Trouble is I can't remember what I did! Can you post the output when you start links -g? Maybe it'll jog my memory... My mouse is working fine too.

    IIRC svgalib programs need to be suid root to work. I not used svgalib in a long time, though.

    I've got the exact same problem!
    What resolution are you using

    you can set it by going links -g -mode <resolution>
    typing links -g should give you a list of them all.
