    ies4linux problem

    IDK if i'm missing something obvious but, when I install ies4linux, after the gui install, nothing happens. I requested desktop links, but that never happened either. I think the gui install process finished, but now Im stuck. any help would be appreciated!

    When I installed IEs4linux I did get this message:

    I don't know why this happens but I know that if you choose to install Internet Explorer 5.5 instead of Internet Explorer 6 everything works just fine...Should I report this someplace? Where?

    Re: ies4linux problem

    I had this problem too - looks like it's a python error. I have python version 2.5.1 (I recall update manager just doing an update within the past week or so too I think?)
    Anyone found a way to fix this? I need to do ie6 testing for work asap! =(

    Re: ies4linux problem

    My solution to the issues I had installing ies4linux, and this will sound rediculous, was to just keep running the install script every time it crashed.

    I received errors which I think were similar, but every time I ran it I would get further along the install process. Eventually it installed, and I was able to run it, and get the 'Sucess!' page the dev set as the default home page.

    However... after that initial run, and that initial success, I haven't been able to get it working again. Now I just get a blank window, and have to kill the app.

    *sighs*

    this works for me:

    ./ies4linux --install-corefonts --no-gui --no-color --beta-install-ie7

    ./ies4linux --full-help for more option goodness

    Re: ies4linux problem

    I was getting all kinds of different errors when running
    Code:
    ./ies4linux
    particularly

    Code:
    python: ../../src/xcb_lock.c:77: _XGetXCBBuffer: Assertion `((int)((xcb_req) - (dpy->request)) >= 0)' failed. ui/pygtk/python-gtk.sh: line 6: 21841 Aborted python "$IES4LINUX"/ui/pygtk/ies4linuxgtk.py
    and what finally worked for me was


    Code:
    sudo ./ies4linux --install-corefonts --no-gui --no-color --beta-install-ie7

    Re: ies4linux problem

    For IE6 I used

    Code:
    sudo ./ies4linux --install-corefonts --no-gui --no-color --install-ie6
    It gave me a red message not to do it as root, so after it finished I changed the ownership of the directory it was put in:

    Code:
    sudo chown $myusername -R /home/$myhomedirectory/.ies4linux/ie6
