How to Install Internet Explorer in Ubuntu


Because Internet Explorer is designed to work on Windows operating systems, the Web browser will not immediately install on the Ubuntu Linux operating system. However, if you download and install a utility called WINE that allows you to emulate and install Windows software on your machine, you can get Internet Explorer for Ubuntu up and running on your computer in just a couple of minutes.

  • Click "Applications."

  • Click "Ubuntu Software Center."

  • Type "WINE" into the "Search" and then check the box next to the listing for "WINE" when it appears in the search results. Click "OK." This will install WINE on your computer.

  • Open the Mozilla Firefox Web browser. Firefox is Ubuntu's default Web browser.

  • Go to Internet Explorer's download page (see References).

  • Click the gray "Download" button. This will download the installation file for Internet Explorer to your Ubuntu desktop.

  • Right click on the Internet Explorer installation file and click "Open with WINE." This will open the Internet Explorer installation utility which will look identical to the utility you would see if you were installing Internet Explorer on a Windows machine.

  • Click "Next," followed by "I Agree" and then "Next," followed by "Finish," to install Internet Explorer inside the Ubuntu operating system.
