    Lightbulb How to Install MT4 on LINUX

    Hi All,

    If you have a LINUX machine like I do, You still can install and use the MT4 platform with full functionalities!

    This is the Roboforex MT4 installed on my ubunto:
    Attachment 5456

    All you need to do is to Install a compatibility software called Wine on your linux computer.

    To do that just Go to _http://www.winehq.org/download/ and download and install the wright package according to your Linux version. (If there is a stable version chose it instead of any newer version)

    I'm not going into detailing the steps of installing wine as it vary with the Linux version you have on your computer.
    For that you can follow the steps on the Wine website. But I will try to reply to your questions and guide you through the process.

    Wine actually allows you to run any ".exe" file (Windows executable) and it is better than any other emulator. You can read about Wine here : http://www.winehq.org/about/

    After Wine is installed it will automatically take in charge any Windows executable on your computer. So all you have to do now is to download the MT4 installer and just double click it, and install it normally like you do on a Windows OS.

    After installing MT4 you just run it normally, with a double click (no further setups are needed).

    (I really encourage traders to use linux as it is better than Windows in the matter of security.)

    I hope this helps.

    Reason me here, one thing I don't comprehend is the reality of the linux working framework, is it in any capacity different from the ordinary windows OS that is most usually utilized by the exchange? Furthermore, if this is extremely valid, at that point I won't depend on the linux for my exchanging in light of the full usefulness. The additional 'wine' program has said may have its own particular blame.

    Recent innovations in setup.exe caused a bug in connection with MetaQuotes' servers, which might not still be fixed in stable versions of Wine. There are some discussions and explanation at MQL site, but basically you need to install wine-staging instead of wine-stable. It's something like a beta version and the bug is fixed there.

    well nothing much complex work you need to do and not a hard work to understand all you need is a software that can run the .exe extension in your linux,there are many but the best is wine and 2 or 3 others,all are like same.so what else you need to do is to download the platform and install it through the software into your linux

    i think working on the linux with dow is useless as there is version of xp and soon after window 7 and 8 and 10 i think window 7 is best for mt4 and it is very easy to install the mt4 just download the software from broker site >run the software< click next < read the term and condition< and finish it . that's all

    People choose Linux for various reasons. Mostly because security, user-friendliness and general usefulness, but also because license "issues" with Microsoft. Pirating doesn't do flawlessly all around the world, there are jurisdictions that actually go after pirates. And paying hundreds of Euros for Windows with today's software abundance is honestly not worth it.
    A native version of MetaTraders for Linux would be much better than current Wine situation, of course. Mostly because graphic acceleration of chart windows, but also because that would make integration of Market possible.
