This is the worst nightmare as most of the time I listen to music using youtube where you can find tonnes of music ranging from oldiest to 21’s century when using Firefox on Ubuntu can view the video but no sound. Luckily it was just a missing plugin that can be install to get back the sound else will be just wipe off back to windows :(.

Strange thing is you can listen to music using the music player but just aint got sound on firefox, so if you too having the same problem don’t wait just run the command below and you’re on your way to get back the sound:-

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound

After install the package, you need to close the Firefox and re-open back. Previously this packages was named libflashsupport and you can’t install that to the current version 9.0.4.

Sound kinda wierd to have Internet Explorer to be install on linux distro as we use linux is to run away from M$ world but sometimes have no choice as some of the website or appliances required to use IE, that’s bad. There is a tool call IEs4Linux to helps you install IE into your distro, just choose your distro version and download then install. I show on how to install for Ubuntu as I installed into my Ubuntu 9.0.4 Jaunty Jackalope with problem.

You need to install wine package and cabextract like this:-

sudo apt-get install wine cabextract

Once you done install the wine package and cabextract, you can proceed to download the IEs4linux and start the installation like below:-

wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
tar xvfz ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-*
./ies4linux

When you run the “./ies4linux” command it will start the gui installation where you can choose which IE version to install then it will download the rest of the package to install automatically, roughly takes about 10 to 15 min depend on your internet speed. That’s end of the installation and you will have your IE shown on the desktop.
