Internet Explorer for Linux - (ie4linux)

Following Steps to be done for IE installation on LINUX:

Command 1:
wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
Command 2: tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
Command 3: cd ies4linux-*
Command 4: ./ies4linux

Following screen will appear on executing command-4:

Click on Advance Button to set Paths. Also check on the 7.0 checkbox to get IExplorer7.

After completion of process go to your specified path. You will find ies4linux-ie6.desktop and ies4linux-ie7.desktop files. Double click on any one to start IE on Linux.


Executing Command-4 gives me the following error:

"IEs4Linux 2 is developed to be used with recent Wine versions (0.9.x). It seems that you are using an old version. It's recommended that you update your wine to the latest version (Go to: winehq.com).
You need to install cabextract first!
Download it here: http://www.kyz.uklinux.net/cabextract.php"

Actually here the error is not correct because i do have latest version of Wine but doesn't have cabextract.

You can install Wine easily from Add/Remove Applications.
If cabextract is not Installed go through the following steps:

Command 5: wget http://www.cabextract.org.uk/cabextract-1.2.tar.gz
Command 6: tar -zxvf cabextract-1.2.tar.gz
Command 7: cd cabextract-1.2
Command 8: ./configure
Command 9: make
Command 10: make install
