Adding the WineHQ PPA Repository:
Steps to get Internet Explorer are:
1. Open winetricks (Applications->wine->Winetricks)
2. Choose the option, “Select the default wine prefix” (confusing to me since I don’t know what a prefix is and it sounds like I’m doing something that will be the default for everything in wine)
3. Click “OK”
4. Choose option, “Install a Windows DLL or component”
5. Click “OK”
6. Now choose IE6, 7, or 8 from the list and check the checkbox
Note: Choose one option at a time as wine need to restart after each install.
7. Click “OK”
After installation it will ask for “restart”, this will not restart your system but restart the “wine”.
You also get some error messages, just click on OK.
From now on, if you need to run the installed program then go to Applications -> wine -> Browse C: Drive -> Program Files -> Internet Explorer -> Run “iexplore.exe” with “wine”
So, would you ever say that you can not run Internet Explorer on Linux? 🙂
