Run iexplore.exe under wine

Filed under
Linux

I hate having to use Microsoft Tools. At work, however, we have a web page that we have to update each week--and, it only works with Internet Explorer.

Since I'm now running my work workstation full-time under Linux instead of Windows XP, I've need to get MS iexplore.exe running under wine. It was simple--here's how I did it.

Like many things, the answer is on the Internet at:

Since I use PCLinuxOS, I chose the Mandriva install directions, and followed them.

The result--I know have iexplore 6.0 running under Wine linux, so I can run it onece a week for a few minutes.

Only glitch I see is that favorites don't seem to save, but this is a small matter.
