Install ies4linux on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

By | March 24, 2010

Wine and cabextract are needed to run ies4linux
So install them like this :

sudo apt-get install wine cabextract

Next download and unpack ies4linux like this :

tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-*

Run setup like this


If you get errors like

unknown option: T
unknown option: menubar

then simply edit the file ui/kommander/

Towards the end you would see a line like this

konsole -T "${GUI_TITLE}" --nomenubar --notabbar --noclose --schema BlackOnWhite --icon "$IES4LINUX/lib/ies4linux.svg" --vt_sz 60x30 -e "$IES4LINUX/lib/"

remove the -T , --nomenubar , --notabbar , --schema and --vt_sz things.
Then it should install fine.
