I need to install Internet Explorer 8, so I followed the instructions in this link.

I ran the command winetricks and I got the following output:

$ winetricks
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/home/gan/.cache/winetricks/wsh57’: Permission denied
Note: command 'mkdir -p /home/gan/.cache/winetricks/wsh57' returned status 1.
