All about K-Meleon under Linux using wine.
[quote=Fred] I would give it another try. I had no problems installing Wine1.2 on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. libaudio2 was installed as it should, but I know that sometimes some packages can be uninstallable, although usually only, if a package from a different Ubuntu version has been installed before. For Wine, it should be possible to install it in a different way. because Ubuntu loads a lot of additional packages together with Wine that are not forcefully necessary for Wine to work. May be s o m e programs supported by Wine may not work, if some additional packages are missing, but to use K-Meleon, it will be sufficient to install the Slackware Wine package from the original site winehq.org, which is a binary Tarball of only 13 Mb, that can be installed by hand. You can download with Firefox for example Wine 1.1.23 , clicking on the following link : http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Slackware%20Packages/1.1.23/wine-1.1.23-i486-1kjz.tgz/download In the Download window select "Save File" . This will download a ".tgz" file. The Download will usually be done to /home/ubuntu/Downloads. Open Terminal in the menu Applications/Accessories. Write the line : sudo su and press the Enter key. This will give you temporary administrator rights (root rights). On the next line go to the location, where your downloaded Wine package is, probably /home/ubuntu/Downloads. Write : cd /home/ubuntu/Downloads and press the Enter key. Always respect the correct spaces between the parts of the command. To install the package write the line : tar -C / -zxf wine-1.1.23-i486-1kjz.tgz After typing w as the first letter of wine-1.1.23-i486-1kjz.tar.gz you can press the Tabulator key and w will complete to the full name. Pressing the Enter key will install Wine. To correct a missing symlink problem with libwine, write then : mv /usr/lib/libwine.so.1.0 /usr/lib/libwine.so.1 Write then : exit to leave the root modus. Writing winecfg as user ubuntu will build the configuration folder ".wine" in /home/ubuntu Until the official K-Meleon version has been installed, select in the configuration window "Windows 98" as the current version. This will later install the correct k-meleon.exe that will work in Linux. To check the wine install, you can write : wine --version which should return "wine-1.1.23". Download the K-Meleon-installer with Firefox to /home/ubuntu/Downloads/ . To install K-Meleon from Downloads write into the Terminal (as user ubuntu, not as root !) wine /home/ubuntu/Downloads/K-Meleon1.5.3en-US.exe and press Enter. Wine will start the installation. In the location window click on "Browse" to change the location of the installed K-Meleon. To install to /home/ubuntu/ , I presume, that on your computer you also will have to click on Z: , home ,and ubuntu, and OK. This would show as Z:\home\ubuntu\ . Complete the line to Z:\home\ubuntu\K-Meleon-1.5.3 Then clicking on Install would bring up a last window. Uncheck there "Run K-Meleon 1.5.3" and click Finish. The two dll-files that I mentioned before seem to be already included in the official installer version. You can install a link to K-Meleon with wine on the desktop or try to start it right now from the Terminal (as user, not as root), writing : wine /home/ubuntu/K-Meleon-1.5.3/k-meleon.exe This should start K-Meleon. There should be already a link K-Meleon.lnk on the Desktop. Right click on it --> Open with another application. Select "Wine Windows Program Loader" at the bottom. You can later make this permanent, in Properties of the link. I hope that you succeed with your task. Linux is worth the effort. Regards Fred[/quote]
