Java Tools

Chances are the 'tweak' they are referring to is running IE in Wine.  I have
successfully run many ActiveX apps using this process, but as far as I know
the only version of IE that will run is IE6.  Wine can be installed from the
repository (sudo apt-get install wine) and you can find details about it
here: .


Once Wine is installed and configured, you can install IE6 via IEs4Linux.
Details here: .  Be
advised: there is a bug in the newer 64 bit Ubuntu distros that causes the
IEs4Linux install script to fail.  Look through the FAQ on the site to see
how to run the script with no gui and it will install without errors.


I'm pretty sure Java will install in Wine, but check the WineHQ app database
to verify.


I hope this helps.

As a volunteer I have been maintaining a university website and have had to
borrow a window machine so I could use IE.  They changed content management
system and went to Firefox as well as IE so it looked like I could use my
Ubuntu system.  I did not check the system requirements -- bad news.  The
following paragraphs describe the problem better:

At this time, we do not currently support any Linux distributions for the
purposes of site management.  Since it's unsupported, you're going to run
into issues like this one, most frequently with content management.  We
currently support Windows and OS X.

The trouble is with the Java tools.  iModules is set up to identify the Java
language tool on Windows and Mac machines only.  With the some tweaking and
emulation you can get the system to function but it's not easy and requires
a high level of competency within a Linux environment.

Does anyone know how I might "tweak and emulate" to get the system to
function?  Where might I start?  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
