Basic terminal browser?

Post by Aeolian »

i read somewhere here that I can use Torbrowser to figure out where my internet connection problem is. (Can connect with windows 10 and Live Mint usb but not in mint anymore)
Torbrowser install requests internet something I do not have.

I remember there was a basic browser once that could be run from terminal without installation. Anyone know about such a a basic browser? that could maybe help me doing some tracer ping etc tests etc.

Hi,

Tor Browser or any browser including terminal ones will use your internet connection.
If your internet connection doesn't work, no browser will work.
Since your internet connection works using Windows 10 and Linux Mint live USB, your hardware works and is compatible with Linux Mint, and the problem can be solved by settings.
When you are using live Linux Mint, look at your network settings, note them and reproduce them in your installed Linux Mint.
If you want more precise help, please publish your system information, see viewtopic.php?t=410977&sid=a4acec76854f ... 396a932d0c

Regards,

MN

Thanks MN. I just had the same idea. I took a photo of the live mint usb working network settings but no success with these on linux mint.

About the basic browser I found W3M I thought that W3M like TorBrowser may be less requiring. But I can not download it without Internet.

All Linux software should be installable without internet connection. Like downloading it with another computer or OS Aand then unpack and run like I tried with TorBrowser.

But I wonder.How is it possible that Linux Mint worked for two weeks and then got stuck.[/b]
I had exactly the same problem with Ubuntu. That was the reason I installed Mint over Ubuntu. Isn't that strange?

I tried to find advanced settings in Chrome settings to check proxy etc but do not find it.
I have Version 123.0.6312.105 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I am in Windows 10 now. While i wait for your reply I will try with a Timeview restore. I save the setting just after my new Mint install. I will read you thereafter again.

This sounds like kernel update bringing in driver issue. You should try booting into older kernel. One can select an older kernel in the GRUB boot menu. If it is indeed caused by new kernel update, uninstall the new kernel through Update Manager. Then block that particular version of update from being applied when it is offered again.
