Hey guys, i am new to Ubuntu Server 12.04, i were using Ubuntu Desktop before, an i've installed with wine the metatrader4.

In Ubuntu Server, it seems not to be possible, or that easy (only terminal).

So my question: Is it possible to install mt4 on Ubuntu Server, and somehow to let an EA trade on an account?

Personally I recommend you to use a VirtualBox (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads) with XP
especially when you start to trade with real money

Thank you for the links, but that are the way to install MT4 on Ubuntu Desktop version, i think this is not going to work on a server. There is no user interface, terminal only. (Or am i wrong about his? I am new to the world of servers (VPS))

Your question has more to-do with Ubuntu Server 12.04 than it does with MT4. I would be asking a Ubuntu forum about how to install Graphical Windows Programs on it.

If you want to install a Windows application the best solution is to install it in Windows.

Search for a Windows VPS, not necessarily related with MetaTrader, but running Windows.
No need to complicate your life.
