xx Browser in LB
« Thread started on: Aug 20th, 2015, 6:57pm »

Could any of you using LB on Linux with wine tell me if they can get either Alyce's LBBrowse.dll to function as it should, or if Using ATL to Embed a Browser https://lbpe.wikispaces.com/ATL+Tutorial actually works under wine.

I have no issues on win7 but my preferred choice of OS is PCLinuxos
so I wold like to get this working.

I'm looking to display stock market info direct from Yahoo within my LB program, mainly for the charts.

any feedback is appreciated

G'Day Dan
I use firefox with my linux box, however I just checked the WINE installation and IE exists but will not run. I'll check out that on the WINE website.

I'm sure I recall LBBrowse working for me on WINE a year or so back.
maybe something has change with the updates over time.

I'll look into that too.
I was curious as to whether other Linux users were experiencing the same issue or is it just my version of the OS

I'm not a Linux user. Dan has spotted the problem. Both my DLL and the ATL example embed an IE browser, so if IE won't run, neither will they.
