I have two problems with this thread: first, why did he post to debian-kde
when he says he doesn't want to install X?; second, why are we giving him
advice to use the KDE control center???

this question has nothing to do with debian-kde - but you don't need X to
use a browser.  Use lynx or any other text browser.
