What browser works well when emulated with wine ?

Just of curiosity… if you guys have to emulate a browser using wine what would it be? :slight_smile:

Personally i don`t know what to try between Firefox and Chrome :\

I used to use firefox over wine as veoh plugin wouldn’t install in Linux version
It worked pretty well even for windows based plugins like veoh and flash
It is a known devil :slight_smile:

Unless you need some windows only plugins on browsers there is no need to go in for browsers over wine as the linux versions for these browser works well

I have 2 reasons for this and both are games; one plugin is unity web player and second is java. I know that we have java for linux (well we use to have…) but the game requires Java for Windows.

generally speaking Java is a write once and run in a all platform language so your Java game would probably work unless your game is making native calls

I did try the game under linux and the game does not start saying that is not implemented for my platform.

Wow, Java fail. Java’s biggest thing is platform independence. That’s about the only reason to use it instead of C++…

I read it more as an app fail - the developer sounds to have implemented
a platform check in order to avoid supporting the software on a platform
they don’t want to.

hendersj: i suspect that too… what jerks.

I think your game requires both unity player+java
since unity player is not available to for Linux the Java code is checking for OS it is running on

Well, I can understand not wanting to support platforms if they don’t
have the resources or the expertise to do so.

I don’t run browsers under wine, nor in Windows :smiley:

@creatura85: I’m curious, what’s the game?

Have you tried to run the game with sun’s JRE instead of the default openJDK’s one?

Knurpht:

  1. the game is Drakensang Online | The online fantasy game in your browser
  2. no i did not tried openJDK

vazhavandan: i don`t think so because the game does not offer a link to download unity for windows…

Whose Jave do you have installed, openjdk? I’d remove and replace it with Sun Java and redefine it in alternatives.

To change the default version of a program, use:

update-alternatives --list java
update-alternatives --config java

Openjdk stinks and is useless.

Except that Sun Java is being dropped from openSUSE and being replaced with openjdk.
