How to: Install IE4Linux on Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)

Hi guy!, I just post this matter after I have asking from my friend, how to install "Internet Explorer " on Linux. Sometime, web base application didn't matching the code with others browser. Thats why my friend ask me to do that. I suggest him to use IE4Linux. This is the way I install the IE4Linux on Ubuntu 7.10(Gutsy Gibbon)

1. Make sure you login your Ubuntu Linux with normal user. Don't login as root. Sometime IE4Linux won't come out or launching when you login as root after install.

2. Open your terminal

3. Open /etc/apt/sources.list with command. For this case I use gedit. Please use your favorite editor for easy editing. For example Vi editor, Nano editor etc.
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
4. Uncomment (or add) following lines:
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu gutsy universe

5. Add this line:

deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt gutsy main

6. Close gedit. Update and install wine and cabextract:

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine cabextract
7. Download IEs 4 Linux and install
wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-*
./ies4linux

I can't remove the option because the script dead but I have removed all the options so:

# Execute command on Konsole
konsole "${GUI_TITLE}" "$IES4LINUX/lib/ies4linux.svg" -e "$IES4LINUX/lib/install.sh"

I've had more trouble with the latest version on Kubuntu 9.04. To fix the "unknown option" message I installed with gtk, by adding
PREFERRED_GUI="gtk"
on line 217 (right before it's first used)

Hi...I installed ies4linux on ubuntu 8.04 with this help. I ran it using $(home)/bin/ie6 on the terminal. It worked nicely. But when I closed the window, script at command prompt did not return. It tried to use ctrl-C to terminate it, that also did not work. So I killed it using "kill -9 ". Now whenever I run the ie6 script, I never see the browser window. Any help ?
