You can install internet explorer from a tool that automatically downloads and installs it. For that, first you need wine, the Windows emulator. Then access their site: and download their IEs4Linux tool. There should be instructions on how to install it in their site.

Hi, you can install ie with the ie4linux project ( it is very easy, but you can try Opera Browser have an option to works like ie, in fact firefox have an addon to do that too (

It's probably worth pointing out that IE is a windows program and you are trying to install it in Ubuntu which is Linux. That's kind of like putting a square peg in a round hole. Of course, Linux is quite flexible and you can sometimes make this work (see WINE), it's best to use the right pegs.

Can you help with this problem?
