Easy methods for installing Safari on Linux

How to easy install Safari on Linux? When comparing the main online browsers, Apple’s Safari probably includes capabilities that suit your needs. Nevertheless, despite its popularity, Safari has never been formally published for Linux, which is peculiar given that UNIX is a shared technology between Linux and macOS.

The best part is that there are various ways to run Safari on Linux whether you’re a Linux user or web developer who has to offer support for the Safari browser. Despite having these limitations, Safari 5 still includes all the features you require for web browsing.
WINE is used to install Safari on Linux.
To install Safari on Linux, there are two potential workarounds: Use WINE by itself or in conjunction with PlayOnLinux to give WINE with a graphical user interface (UI).

After completing this guide, you will also have simple access to other applications that are not currently operating on Linux because you may install a variety of additional Windows programs using WINE and PlayOnLinux in addition to Safari.

How to set up WINE
One of the most well-known Linux packages is WINE, which can be found in the majority of package managers and software stores. Using the following command (for 32-bit PCs), you can install WINE in Ubuntu (or an Ubuntu-based distribution):

wine32 sudo apt install
or (on 64-bit systems):

wine64 – sudo apt install
One thing to keep in mind is that Ubuntu’s WINE version is fairly ancient. Do the following if you want the most recent stable version of WINE:

Add WINE key first.

-nc wget sudo apt-key https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key insert winehq.key
Add the archive, too.

deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/eoan main, sudo apt-add-repository

The command listed above is for Ubuntu 19.10 (eoan). Change the name to reflect the Ubuntu version you are using (such as “bionic,” “xenial,” etc.)

System upgrades

apt update 4 with sudo. Install WINE’s stable version lastly.

Installing WineHQ-Stable with sudo apt install —install-recommends
Now WINE is set up.

Installing WINE and Safari
Open a Terminal window and enter the following commands before downloading Safari:

cd to “/build/safari” and type “mkdir -p”

You can now use the wget command to download Safari:

wget SafariSetup.exe at http://appldnld.apple.com/Safari5/041-5487.20120509.INU8B
When the download is finished, use the following command to start Safari Setup:

SafariSetup.exe for wine
You could be asked to download some more software at this point, such Mono or Gecko. Click Install when requested, then watch as the packages download.

Safari Installer will start up immediately after you have all the required software.

The Safari Installer will start up immediately.
The web browser will be installed after you have finished the required steps, and you can begin using Safari on Linux.
Using PlayOnLinux, install Safari
Since WINE does not have the best user interface, you might want to install PlayOnLinux instead, which offers a graphical user interface for the most fundamental WINE code.

You can use the following command to install PlayOnLinux:

install playonlinux with sudo
PlayOnLinux is now accessible from the Applications menu.

Select Install a software from the PlayOnLinux window.
Choose Install a program
In the search box, type Safari.
In the search box, type “Safari”
Select the web browser when it displays, then click Install. Read the Disclaimer section, and then click Next if you agree (2 times). Your pc will now download Safari.
