Run NetSurf by executing the "nsfb" program:
- The NETSURFRES environment variable may require setting to enable
- NetSurf to find its resources.
+ | Note: NetSurf uses certain resources at run time. In order to find these
+ | resources, it searches three locations:
+ | 1. ~/.netsurf/
+ | 2. $NETSURFRES/
+ | 3. /usr/share/netsurf/
+ | In the build tree, the resources are located at
+ | framebuffer/res
+ | Setting $NETSURFRES to point at the resources in the build tree
+ | will enable you to run NetSurf from here without installation.
+ | To do this, run:
+ | export NETSURFRES=`pwd`/framebuffer/res
