    IE 6 in Wine


    I have just installed Wine and I'm trying to use Internet explorer 6. I've installed it right and everything. How do I run it? I've been trying to figure this out. If I type wine iexplorer.exe in the command line, nothing happens. ?. It's very confusing and frustrating. If you have any suggestions, please help me. Thanks!

    The obvious question is, why do you need to run Internet Explorer?

    I see there's a Flash 7 player available for Linux. You specifically need support for Flash 9? From what I'm reading it looks like that's still being developed right now.

    As for IE in Linux, there were a couple of threads that got some interest recently:

    Try Installing Winetools from the winehq site.
