I have access to lynx on mountaindew.
I just started a new account for a non-profit on masseria.
I don’t have access to lynx there.

Is Dreamhost dropping lynx as part of the standard shell toolbox?

Do you have attemped links instead?

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.

Have you verified that it’s not in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin? Does a man page for lynx come up?


No lynx:
$ ssh find /usr/bin /usr/local/bin -name lynx
$ ssh dpkg -l|grep lynx
But all is not lost! Try w3m!
$ssh dpkg -l|grep w3m
ii w3m 0.5.1-5.1 WWW browsable pager with excellent tables/frames support

Nope - not on the box.
Thanks for asking.

Okay, I’ve got a handle on w3m.
It’s sort of a hybrid between text and visual.
Toolboxes change.
Neither is perfect, but either will do.
