Re: Best way to download files from internet using bash
There are text-mode browsers available. W3M, Links2 (which can run in graphical mode without X, just start it with the -g parameter) and eLinks are good options and should work fine for the purpose of browsing around to a driver download page, and then downloading a driver.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
