Because I need to run a service from my service provider that is only supported by Microsoft Internet Explorer or Safari.
I should care but I don’t.
First, install wine, an application that allows you to run Microsoft Windows apps on ubuntu:
# sudo apt-get install -y wine
Create download and build directory:
# mkdir -p ~/build/safari
# cd ~/build/safari
And finally, open it using wine:
# wine SafariSetup.exe
On my first attempt, I had the following issue when installing wine:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
wine1.6: Depends: wine1.6-amd64 (= 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu4)but 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu4 is to be installed Depends: wine1.6-i386 (= 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu4) but it is a virtual package
Distribution upgrade did the trick (backup your relevant data):
# sudo apt-get -u dist-upgrade
