Wine Gecko problem


Heya guys, I cant get Gecko to run right on my Wine install (Running Debian Sid currently, AMD64 version)

I enter "wine iexplore http://www.google.com" and get a blank page and an error saying "www.google.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again."

Its like that for all web sites and applications like Steam that need to open web pages inside of it.

I Installed gecko automatically accepting the install request when first opening Steam.

Any ideas?

This is a copy from the howto install Steam from it's database page on Winehq.org:

download wine_gecko.cab to the "/tmp" directory and point Wine to it (save this as-is to the "/tmp/file.reg" then import with command 'regedit /tmp/file.reg':

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\MSHTML]
"GeckoUrl"="z:\\tmp\\wine_gecko.cab"
