Is there any ActiveX control implementation on Linux, to begin with?

That's true, too. I don't think the Windows version of Firefox has any support for ActiveX either.

But ActiveX will not work in linux

I visited the site raaga.com. All you need is Realaudio plugin.

real audio plugin

i had already added real audio plugin but yet it is not working....... there is a note on popup window that your browser must support activex controls



The following error(s) occured:

It looks like you do not have the latest Real Player installed!Please download the FREE version from Real Networks and try again.
Note: Please make sure you have ActiveX controls/plug-ins enabled.

I have to correct myself. This site may be Windows-only. I am not a html programmer and I could not find the place in the page source where alternate (non-IE) browser is supported. Didn't try very hard though.
You should contact the webmaster of raaga.com.

If it says it requires activex your pretty much screwed. You'll probably have to use IE over WINE.
