I followed the instructions I found and located the 64bit RPM created for
FEDORA 22.  Downloaded it and installed it using
RPM -IVH httrack-3.48.20-2.fc22.i686.rpm

After install it showed up under my start menu,  No problem. So when I run it, 
It opens a firefox window and loads:
<http://localhost.localdomain:8080/>  
Which is a total failure because the page is blank.   I fiddled with the code
a bit and found some "TEST" lines that are messing it up.  After extensive
troubleshooting,  I was unsuccessful at fixing all the errors necessary to
have this thing load and do what it was meant to do.  So I have created a
process for LINUX users to work around it and make it functional.

This code is for FEDORA 22 users, but you can likely just adapt DNF for SUDO
APT-GET and get same results in UBUNTU or other Debian Linux distro.

Go back to your web browser,  and go to 
<https://www.httrack.com/>
click DOWNLOADS Button,  then download the Windows XP 32bit compatible EXE
file.  save it to your downloads folder.

CODE:
su -             {and type in your root Password}
cd /home/michael/Downloads/   {change "michael" to your user}
ls -al            {should show the newly downloaded EXE file}
chmod -Rv 777 httrack-3.48.21.exe    {file exact name varies}
dnf install wine     {select yes to install WINE}

After WINE is installed, you need to go to your Start Menu and go under wine, 
run "WINE CONFIGURATION",  select Windows XP and press OK to Exit out.  But
the Wine Configuration has to be ran atleast once after install to setup the
base default configuration or it wont work.

once done,  go back to your command line,
CODE:

exit       {exit leaves fedora Super User state, back to normal user state, if
you are a SUDO type guy, just dont type SUDO on the next command line entry.}

cd /home/michael/Downloads/ 
wine httrack-3.48.21.exe

then just click next a few times, same as you would do in WINDOWS XP,  till
its installed then you are done!

ONE IMPORTANT NOTE!  DO NOT COPY WEBSITES INTO WINE C:\ EVER!
WINE HAS A Z:\ WHICH IS YOUR ROOT HARD DRIVE!

I copy my websites to the following as an example:
Z:\home\michael\Public 

This copies from WINE to my regular home folder on FEDORA 22 KDE.  Other than
that,  It works perfectly like it does on Windows XP.

Once you close it,  Its no longer on your start menu because its now a WINE
Program,  so to start it back up, go under your START MENU, Then under WINE,
and then under PROGRAMS,  HTTRACK will be listed under there from now on as a
wine program.  

HAVE FUN!
