Initially, when I needed to run a few IE specific sites on my Ubuntu installation, I spent quite some time searching around google, and some more prominent linux sites... But I did not hit success...
Today however, my search bore fruit... I found IEs4Linux project, and its so damned simple.
I am still running Hardy (not Interpid) on my desktop, and wine (the default). I picked up the instructions, kind of updated them myself to work in my hardy, and bingo.. it installed and works...absolutely.
Here's what I did -
- Found this page for installation instructions on Ubuntu :
- Run the following commands -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine cabextract
- And then run this -
tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
- The last one would open a dialog box and would ask you basic questions about what version do you want, choose what u like and bingo.. it would start installation...
- Within minutes, it automatically downloads some files from here and there, and is done.
- It just works...
