Try to detect headless *nix system (running X ?). Don't try to start www-browser automatically on headless systems.

Display help string on headless system in terminal, maybe a good idea for all systems:

$i2prouter start
Starting I2P Service...
Waiting for I2P Service.....
running: PID:12198
access i2prouter web frontend at: HTTP://localhost:7657

This seems to be a commonly needed thing, often fist time users do not know they should access 7657.

Also I would add:

You should now create a new web-browser profile, and go to http://localhost:7657 where you will find web panel of your i2p node.

Also set browser connection proxy to server at localhost port 4444 for http, and port 4445 for https - to be able to open .i2p sites.

Give i2p hew minutes to start up fully.

related / dup: #847

#1341 is somewhat related.

#847 is about detecting headless in systray.
This ticket proposes that, and additionally proposes detecting and printing a message in the i2prouter script.

Perhaps, if i2prouter is going to spit out a bunch of help text, it does it only if it appears to be the first time the program is run (i.e. args == "start" && $I2P_CONFIG_DIR does not exist).

Any help text must be tagged for translation.
