I've successfully installed
Internet Explorer 7 with
winetrick in a clean prefix.
I can successfully run it from terminal like this:
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32ie7 wine 'C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore'
Then I have created a .desktop entry to appear in gnome-shell menu:
which looks like this:
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Name=Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 Exec=env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32ie7 wine 'C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore' Type=Application StartupNotify=true Comment=Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 Web Browser.
I have restarted the shell and now my launcher appears but when I select it nothing happens other than the cursor turning in the rotating wheel for few seconds. I cannot even get debug message as can't find how to startup the .destkop launcher from terminal. Can someone help me please?
EDIT / SOLUTION: Ok, sorry I've fond where the issue is:
Exec=env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32ie7 wine 'C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore'
Exec=env WINEPREFIX=/home/luca/.wine32ie7 wine 'C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore'
~ seems only having a value in a terminal environment.
