IEs 4 LinuxPosted: September 26, 2006
IEs 4 Linux (seen here) is a small script that automagically downloads and installs Internet Explorer on a Linux machine. I was skeptical that it would “Just Work” ™, but I decided to give it a shot, and it did Just That. Ubuntu instructions:
$ apt-get install wine cabextract && ./ies4linux
Just answer the prompts and IE will be installed on youir machine, complete with a script for running it in your $HOME/bin directory and a shortcut on your desktop (which I promptly deleted…but hey, some people like desktop icons…) Most impressive.
