    Exclamation I can't seem to find and run Wine IE...

    I remember seeing somewhere that there was a wine internet explorer on my system, but I can't find it... If anybody has a terminal command for it that would be nice.

    Not sure how well IE works but on 64 bit install this would start -
    Code:
    wine '.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe'
    on either a 32 bit or 64 bit install probably this
    Code:
    wine '.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe'
    (just browse in home folder > .wine > ect, ect. to find

    Normally WINE programs get put under a WINE/Programs/ menu.
    If you want IE installed since it isn't in your current WINE environment, the winhq.com is filled with how-to instructions. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ication&iId=25

    I think that if you want to use the integral version of IE, you will need to install wine1.3-gecko, which has the following description in package properties
    This package includes the Gecko rendering engine from the Mozilla project for
    displaying web pages in Wine's fake Internet Explorer.
    I have never used it so can not tell you how well, or even if it works properly. Even going back to my windows days I never used IE, so I certainly see no possible reason to start now.

    Not a user of Wine, but from what I recall, the version installed by default with it is IE version 6 -- which is so old that MS is trying to do away with it. I believe, that if you go to the Wine section, you can find out how to install newer versions -- but those stop at 7 or 8, not 9.
    Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
