Safari 5 runs in Linux

By | 2010/06/22

I’m not sure why you would want to do it, but yes Safari 5 runs fine in Linux with wine. šŸ™‚

In Ubuntu 10.04 install this version of wine:

sudo apt-get install wine1.2-dev

Next, fetch the wonderful winetricks

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

Make it executable

chmod +x winetricks

Use winetricks to install corefonts

./winetricks

Now go and download the Safari Quicktime combo:

And run the installer:

wine SafariQuickTimeSetup.exe

It works! You can run Safari from your Ubuntu Applications menu under Wine > Programs > Safari
