Installing MXIE on Ubuntu 10.10 Linux

February 16, 2011 13 comments

Well, I set up MXIE on Ubuntu at work a few months ago and couldn’t remember finding a guide on how to do it, so here it goes.

Step 1.
Browse to your MXIE server and download the .RPM package.

Step 2.
Open up a terminal, you will need to install the libc++5 library for MXIE to run.

sudo apt-get install libstdc++5

Step 3.
Install alien to convert the .rpm package to a .deb installer package.

sudo apt-get install alien

Step 4.
Convert the .rpm to a .deb package

cd /home/user/Downloads
sudo alien mxie-3.0.18-0.i386.rpm

Step 5.
Depackage the .deb generated by alien

sudo dpkg -i mxie-3.0.18-1_i386.deb

Step 6.
Type mxie in a terminal to launch!
