Hi, the day care center where my baby stays has
cameras so parents can see their child all the time.
There is no problem looking at this images with
a pc with microsoft windows but I have not been
able to see it with my linux computers. The guy
at the center says I must install windows and Active X
software. I have rh7.3 at home, enterprise linux at work
and debian on my laptop. I don't want to install windows.
Is there a way around this problem?
I have googled but cannot find anything usefull.
Please help a linux mom smile.gif

thanks

While I'm 99% sure that you can't get native Active X support in Linux (even if you could, I wouldn't suggest it. Active X is one of the top ways a malicous user/site damages your computer), I do belive you can use wine to run Iexplorer, and perhaps you can view it through that?

Yeah, you can't get Active X controls to work natively in linux, this is a proprietary thing that Microsoft has done. However, as Termina suggested, you can install IE6 in linux and perhaps it may work through that, i really don't know if you can get Active X controls to work through wine because i've never really tried it.

Luckily, there is a HOWTO on the Gentoo forums with getting IE6 working in linux. I quickly read through the HOWTO, and it doesn't appear to be Gentoo-specific.

Good luck, and let us know how it works out for you.

Thanks for the tip. I've never used wine or IE but I'll try to
get it working.
I'ts really sad that there are still reasons we must
use windows/microsoft.
I noticed a discussion on why anybody would want to run
IE on linux, maybe I should post saying 'because I want to
see my baby!'

thanks,
C

I'm using a visual basic 6.0 program on wine. I get the same error about active x, but it happens during a call to the webbrowser1 control which is vb's internal call to built in mini IE explorer version. has anyone run into this? Any feedback or where to look for an answer would be helpful.
