    Gecko is required for HTML rendering. To install, just open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    wine iexplore http://www.winehq.org
    Follow the prompts and it will install itself. You will know the install is complete and successful when the WineHQ website is displayed.

    As I said, it is required for HTML rendering. Wine doesn't have an HTML rendering engine built in, so it needs the standard Gecko engine installed.

    Did Gecko actually download (there should have been a progress bar)? If it didn't or it did but didn't install for some reason, then you can either try the automatic method again, or do this:

    1. Open a terminal and manually download/extract the Gecko package by running the following:
      NOTE - You will need to install the cabextract package from the repositories to do this
      Code:
      wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/wine/wine_gecko-0.1.0.cab && cabextract wine_gecko-0.1.0.cab
    2. Next, run the following to create the directories needed for Gecko:
      Code:
      mkdir -p ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/gecko/0.1.0/
    3. Place the extracted Gecko files into the newly created directory:
      Code:
      mv wine_gecko ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/gecko/0.1.0/
    4. Run regedit in the terminal. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/MSHTML and create a new key labelled "0.1.0"
    5. In the new "0.1.0" key, create a new string value labelled "GeckoPath" and set the string value to "c:\windows\gecko\0.1.0\wine_gecko"

    That's it, Gecko should be installed now.

    mine looks the same now. is there a command you can run in the terminal to see if it's done properly, or some other way to confirm?
