Active X on Linux:General Topic
We know that ActiveX Components can access only Windows Operating System.
I want to develop a web application which should behave the way similarly when we embed an Active X Control in a web page.Here we can call its specific functions, events etc...
But to make it work in Linux, i read some where that Java Applet can replace it.
But can Applet access the OS?.
Will that be able to capture events raised by some external devices connected to the machine?
Please gave 2 cents on this.
Well you can always install IE4Linux, on any Linux Distro, this will allow you to run IE6 and the ActiveX on Linux. Currently i have tried this on Gentoo Linux, and RHEL.
You will also need "Wine" if you want to run IE on Linux.
So what Linux Distro are you using?? If its Gentoo its even better, cause you can "Emerge" it right from portage!!
Get IE4LINUX @ http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page
Get Wine @ http://www.winehq.com/
