Hey Ben. I don't use view that much but I believe it needs 'X' to run. In fact I just tested it from a regular console. (didn't work) Why are you choosing not to install X?. The command line is available from X via any number of xterm consoles, and you can Ctrl-Alt F(n) to a number of 'real' consoles if you want - from X. BTW: This is slightly off-topic, but if you want a small browser, super-fast (but doesn't support frames), try Dillo. It is almost as fast as lynx. I use it for browsing documentation. Tim
