This commands starts Netscape, pointing to a copy of the help documents that are installed by default in the local hard disk. Use this option to visualize the help from inside the application.

GOLPE looks for Netscape in the directories listed in the PATH environment variable. By default, Netscape is installed in /usr/bin/X11. If for some reason, Netscape is in a different directory not included in the PATH, and you still wish to start Netscape from within GOLPE you have the following possibilities:

1. Make a symbolic link of the executable (netscape) to this directory or to any other present in the PATH:

ln -s /opt/netscape/netscape /usr/bin/X11

2. Include the Netscape directory in the PATH, for example including in the file /etc/cshrc the following line:

setenv PATH "$PATH:/opt/netscape/bin/"


In both case you would need superuser privileges, so please ask your System Administrator.
