Re: How to run Cisco CCNA exploration in Ubuntu
I got the Cisco CCNA exploration exe files installed and working on my Ubuntu 11.10 Eee PC.
First Wine is needed. I installed wine 1.3 from the Ubuntu Software Centre.
Then to install the exploration material click on the exe as wine will associate with it. If it hasn't and Archive Manager tries to open it right-click on the exe file and choose
Open with -> Wine Windows Program Loader
Wine will install it to the hidden .wine folder in your home folder.
You can access it by opening the home folder and pressing ctrl-h to show hidden files. Then navigate to the Cisco folder
In here you will see the folders of the installed material e.g. /Exploration1_English
In this sub-folder click on index.html
It will open in Firefox. At this point you will find the button "Launch Course" won't respond.
So you need to go to http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...manager04.html and check Always Allow.
You then need to add the location of the Cisco Exploration files to the trusted files list.
From the drop-down list click on Add location and paste in the address of the Cisco folder.
e.g. /home/joseph/.wine/drive_c/CISCO_CCNA -add you user name to this address
Click on confirm and refresh the page to check that the change has stuck and it is still checked as Always Allow
Now when you choose a chapter from the list on the Exploration Index page it will open in a other window.
