Safari on Linux

This is a four step guide to get Apple's Safari browser running on Linux.

  1. Run winecfg, set Windows version to WinXP
  2. Copy the core windows fonts: cp /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/{Arial,Times_New_Roman}*.ttf ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/
  3. Download Safari for Windows from the Apple homepage
  4. Run the Safari installer with Wine. Do not install Bonjour or the Apple updater
  5. Run Safari

Remind that the msttcorefonts is required ;)

Thanks to Erich Schubert for providing the guide
