IEs4Linux fixes blank screen bug

Many people are reporting this problem to me lately: when using IEs4Linux with recent wine versions (>=0.9.52), the ie toolbar disappear and others display bugs happen.Here is IEs4Linux that fixes only this bug. It’s an emergency release since 2.99.1 is not ready yet (as you know I’m late with this due to recent personal problems).I’m now finishing 2.99.1 that will have a lot of improvements and much better Mac compatibility. Just wait or you can spy our SVN server 🙂

    Hi Guis

    I were installed an older version, so I update to IEs4Linux but for install that older version i have not problems, but for installIEs4Linux you must install python because some install scrips are *.py

    This work for me on Mandriva 2007.1

    I Hope this help to someone.

    Hello all!
    I’ve tried both, IEs4Linux 2.99.0 and 2.99.1 and I have strange problem – websites doesn’t want to open. There is only information in status bar: Connecting to … [IP] and nothing happens.
    I have no problems in other applications however I didn’t check something else under Wine. I’ve checked IE5.5, IE6 and IE7 – all the same.
    My system is Dreamlinux, wine installed by APT GET and my internet connection is through router (WiFi USB dongle). Apps like FF, Opera, Skype, GoogleEarth works fine.
    Is there any network configuration for Wine? Strange thing is, that if I type http://www…. address it shows IP of that server in status bar. Does it mean that it gets info from DNS?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I’ve installed using the ie7 proxy hack, but it doesn’t seem to stick. When I open IE7 using selenium, it comes back with a 404, which is indicative of the proxy not being set. I installed using the no-gui option, does that make a difference?

    Also, both ie6 and ie7 don’t seem to close cleanly. I’m searching the web for wine apps not closing, but haven’t come across anything so far. Any suggestions from the forum?

  6. Scott R. Godin says:

    one thing I noticed when doing a fresh re-install just now, that may or may not be relevant:

    installed ies4linux on a fresh desktop machine after a few false-starts with wget failing and causing an error.

    ie6 launches fine and when the app is quit, a few moments later wineserver and the other associated processes ALSO quit.

    I didn’t experience the ‘stuff hanging around issue’ (tested several times) and figured all was well now.

    HOWEVER, after connecting with and installing their mandatory ActiveX plugin, the ‘stuff hanging around after the app quits’ bit started happening again.

    no idea if it’s related but if any of you beta-testers have an account on there, you might poke through the innards to see what’s going on.
