    Post I downloaded the gecko.cab, how do I install it manually on ubuntu?


    I manually downloaded the gecko.cab from source net, I was told I need not install it that I should just place it in the right folder and the wine application will work well. I placed it in nearly every folder in my wine c- drive, but nothing happens.

    I just read that I should use winetricks (after installing cabextract) to manually install the gecko after putting it in winetricks_cache folder.

    I am slightly confused.

    Don't download it yourself, just use winetricks

    It really is easier than you're making it out to be. here's how to install gecko on ubuntu:

    sudo apt-get install cabextract
    sh winetricks gecko

    (And you don't even need to do the first line if you've already installed cabextract.)
    Voila, you're done!
