Hi Group,

I purchased Bordeaux in order to use the Internet Explorer browser on my gentoo x86_64 box --- a certain web app. I use for work requires IE.
Bordeaux installed easily and I followed the directions to install IE7, but I cannot figure out how to start IE from a terminal.
I use the minimalist dwm window manager which doesn't employ any menus so I start everything bash scripts and/or term.

The Bordeaux documentation states the following:

Wine menus are not properly made sometimes, as a work around we install shell script shorcuts for each app we support in /home/user/bin simply double click the app and then select run

or

run $ bin/iexplore to start Internet Explorer for example

- - - - - - - - - -

There was no /bin directory created in my /home/user directory.
I've found iexplore.exe in these places:

/home/mike/.bordeaux/unsupported/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe
/opt/bordeaux/lib/wine/iexplore.exe.so
/opt/bordeaux/lib/wine/fakedlls/iexplore.exe

But no success starting it from the commandline.

It's got to be something simple I'm missing.
Appreciate any pointers and guidance.

Thanks.

I did not figure out how to start IE7 by way of terminal; however, once I tried a window manager with a menu system with all the Bordeaux options on it, everything worked exactly as the documentation states.
