lynx program says 'Can't Access `file://localhost/usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html' Alert!: Unable to access document.'

Where is the startup config file? Can someone please provide a solution?

The default Lynx homepage is set in /etc/lynx.cfg by the STARTFILE statement. You can set $LYNX_CFG to your own config file, or set $WWW_HOME to your preferred homepage.

export WWW_HOME=""

Or you could just give an address on the command line:


Aside: You could also try elinks or w3m browsers.
