"Frames" refers to line drawing in Links (e.g. around menus). Out-of-the-box Links draws broken dashes (--) and pipes (|).
By switching to a frames mode, you will get solid lines drawn round menus, dialog boxes and other features.
Try using a one or more of the frames options in "Terminal options" to see what works
VT100 frames or VT100 frames and Use ^[[11m
Note: the development version of Links "links-current", also has "KOI8-R frames" support.
This option is only configurable by directly editing your Links.cfg file.
Whenever you decide to download or save a document to your hard-drive, Links will produce your home directory as the default directory in the "Save file to" popup box. To change this default, add
to your Links.cfg file, where "Downloads" is an existing sub-directory of your home directory.
Another way of changing this is to download or save a file to a specified directory, then use the menu Setup --> Save options to write the "last used directory" as the default downloads directory.
You can get Links to work through the HTTP and FTP proxies given by your access provider.
Either use the menu system (Setup --> Network options) or add and edit these lines in your Links.cfg file:
These settings can be altered using the menu system (Setup --> Cache) or by adding and/or editing the following lines to Links.cfg.
When a user runs Links for the first time, the configuration file (.links.cfg) is created. If the user then changes any of the default settings for Terminal options, a "terminal2" entry is written to file.
Note: the variable name "terminal2" is used for Links versions > 0.80.
