Installing MXIE on Ubuntu 10.10 Linux

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!

      try running mxie_5.4.5-i_i386.deb from a file browser instead of the terminal.

    I get an error that says: “error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.0.9.7. cannot open chared object file: No such file or directory.

    2 questions then: Where can I download this for an i386 computer?
    I looked here, http://packages.debian.org/lenny/i386/libcrypto0.9.8-udeb/download,
    and my system will not let me write to the usr/lib/ folder. Is that where it belongs?

      try following:
      sudo apt-get install prelink
      sudo execstack -c /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7
      and sudo execstack -c every library you get error about stack with. everything should work ok.

    Stuck on step 4: I am running Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit and can’t run Alien. The error is:
    mxie-6.0.3-0.i386.rpm is for architecture i386 ; the package cannot be built on this system
    Any workaround for this?

      Unfortunately there was never a 64-bit linux version for MXIE as far as I know, The best thing you could do is have a crack at making a 32 bit virtual machine (using virtualbox-ose or similar) and running it in there.

    Late to the game but I’ve gotten this to work by manually extracting the files to a folder and then installing them by hand. You can get the rpm files into a tgz file with the following command:

    alien –to-tgz mxie-7.0.5-0.i386.rpm

    Then extract the tgz file and go into the directory that’s created move the files into the corresponding root directories. For example, if the tgz extracts into a folder called “mxie” inside there you will find “usr/local/zultys/”. Move the zultys folder to /usr/local/ and set your permissions as needed. I also had to add “/usr/local/zultys/lib” to my “/etc/ld.so.conf” file and rerun ldconfig. If I recall you also need to have the lib32 compatability package installed. Happy Hacking!

      Do you have a step-by-step instruction from start to end on installing MXIE 7.0.7 on Ubuntu 12.04?

    I should point out my previous post is for 64 bit installations, sorry about that!

    Has anyone managed to install MXIE 7.0.7 on Ubuntu 12.04 yet? Am having issues with installation.

    I am also running Ubuntu 12.04 desktop and these instructions are not helping me at all… Did anyone get it working and can provide step by step directions?
