linuxquestions.org

First, thanks for the help on that continue button problem.  I've been 
told the webmaster replaced it with a hard link.  The problem I'm having 
now is logging into linuxquestions.org now.  I key in the right 
credentials and continually get told I've keyed in the wrong credentials 
and get locked out after five wrong login attempts for 15 minutes.  I log 
into google with no trouble using lynx and can't figure out why 
linuxquestions.org is impossible to log into with lynx.  If someone has 
time, could you please register an account and try logging into 
linuxquestions.org?  It's possible I may be being blocked on 
linuxquestions.org end based on ip address but there's no proper cause for 
that.  I'm on hughesnet which is not one of the better internet providers 
in America but don't think hughesnet has linuxquestions.org blocked for me 
since I can bring the page up on the lynx browser.  I examined the code of 
linuxquestions.org and it's loaded with all manner of 3rd party junk ajax 
in addition to javascript and all kinds of google add-ons so I hope you 
don't have to do source code diving to figure this one out!

After logging in and selecting forums and after selecting slackware and 
after selecting slackware-installation and after selecting create new 
thread I'm presented with the following screen.  This happens with both 
lynx and lynx-current running in command line mode:

linuxquestions.org and lynx

A long time ago I somcreated an account on linuxquestions.org.  I returned 
and reset my password and have been having trouble first logging into 
linuxquestions.org and once I logged into linuxquestions.org I found I 
could not create a thread on the slackware-installation forum because the 
continue button that had to be hit was unimplemented with the current 
version of lynx and even though numbered links were enabled that button 
did not get a number.  I contacted the site's support and was told that 
lynx users regularly post questions to linuxquestions.org.  So, is that a 
b.s. response from linuxquestions.org or do I need to fine tune my lynx 
configuration file(s) to make accessibility to linuxquestions.org work?  I 
hope there's at least one other user on this list that regularly uses lynx 
to access and post questions on linuxquestions.org that can set me 
straight on the linuxquestions.org site.

segfault when removing an expired cookie

I don't know if this is fixed already, but I just ran into a crash when 
trying to select a link on m.facebook.com. Backtrace is attached. 
Presumably, I had an expired cookie that was being removed. 
scan_cookie_sublist can remove cookies from the sublist, but it then tries 
to iterate to the next item, relying on memory that it just freed. The 
attached patch should fix it.

Note: This only applies to 2.8.8; 2.8.7 handled this correctly.

Thanks,
-Mike

[lynx.isc.org] You are apparently blocking Tor users (and others), probably damaging reputation


The Lynx download website (lynx.isc.org) is famous for banning many IP
address from downloading releases [1].

If you tried to get a safe copy of your great software, for example,
from Iran, the most straightforward way is to do with Tor [2]:

$ torsocks curl -LO http://lynx.isc.org/current/lynx2.8.8rel.2.tar.bz2

However, this would result in:
	curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 403 Forbidden

Bans against Tor IP addresses are often observed in the wild (which
are concerned by many researchers). However, what is your point in
preventing users from getting your programs?

[1] https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1071270
[2] https://www.torproject.org/

Thank you,
A random user

P.S.
I encountered a problem with sending an email to web <at> lynx.browser.org.
This is strange IMHO.

Having trouble with colors and keys

I'm having trouble with lynx, I just got done configuring the config file and placing it ~/.lynxrc. The
selected hyperlinks are green, but I never even used green in my config file. Looking at the lynx manual,
the words "http" "gopher" and others are overwritten with words from the next line. I looked at the error
file ".lynx_error" but nothing shows up so I'm guessing my configuration changes were accepable. Also, I
made some key binding changes and I'm wondering, will any conficts be reported? And if not, then, can I
unbind some keys? There are no directions in the lynx.cfg file for unbinding lynx functions, though
removing the key associated with the value might work.

Thanks

Help getting a lynx that will open https

Hi, my name is Ryan. I heard about ftp based browsers in one of my classes and wanted to try it out. Lynx was recommended and I found one that was already set up. The problem was it would not open any https sites. I have no experience programming and all the instructions loose me. Is there any pre-packaged version you know of?

Thanks
Ryan

If you add this line to lynx.cfg does it help?

That's correct.  It should be provided as a % escape.  Are you saying 
that the equipment needs an illegal URI?

Need to pass ASCII-GS thru to lynxcgi: QUERY_STRING

Hi All,         

 

Background....

We have found an unusual niche for lynx:-  our warehouse management

system employs  "RF-guns"  (small screen  WiFi units with barcode

scanners, see  Intermec CK70  etc )

 

There are hundreds of units on the market,  and to be able to use them

all,  we run the RF-gun's  telnet equivalent program and then run  lynx 

inside that.

 

The various screens needed by our application are HTML pages (almost

exclusively "forms") that are generated by a cluster of  cgi-bins usually

accessed via  'lynxcgi:'

 

These RF-guns cause their laser-scanners to act like key-strokes.

So when the user scans a barcode,  the data is pumped into the current

field on a form, and the  cgi-bin eventually sees this as a classic  

"QUERY_STRING="   environment variable.

 

 

 

My problem....

Most barcodes are a single field....   supermarket-product-code etc.  

no issue.   one-scan-to-one-form-field... easy!   Even QR scans.

 

However there is a class of barcodes  that contain  sub-fields,  and

some of those sub-fields are allowed to be of variable length.

The embedded  sub-field-terminator is always rendered by the RF-gun as 

ASCII-GS (Group Separator,  0x1d, 035)    (see GS1 specification and 

CODE-128 symbology...  nicest web-site is www.adams1.com,  if you have a

spare few days!!)

 

That  ASCII control character is being silently suppressed from the

input, and I need a way to allow it to come through to the

QUERY_STRING.      Actual display of the code-point is (from my point of

view) optional!

 

help!

Cheers

Mark ;-)

 

PS..   our current version is  2-8-7   across many platforms, but 85% are now Linux  (RedHat)...

Happy to update,  especially if the character gymnastics are changed.
