Office 2007 install with Wine – Grammar working too….

13 Sep

G’day,
{Geek Warning! – this may not be easy for the newbie…}

You need to install Wine 1.3 or later.
You also need to grab Winetricks – In Terminal:
cd ~
wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks

If you want a GUI from a terminal type this:
cd ~
./winetricks

This is what you’ll see…

install these…

art2kmin dotnet20 dotnetsp2 gdiplus gdiplus_winxp mfc42 msvcirt msxml3 riched20 riched30 vb2run vb3run vb4run vb5run vb6run vcrun6 vcrun6sp6
the script will stop and send you to a download page – just restart the App to complete the installation – this may happen a couple of times
then install fonts from the previous screen
corefonts

Or simply using the Terminal type:
cd ~
./winetricks corefonts art2kmin dotnet20 dotnetsp2 gdiplus gdiplus_winxp mfc42 msvcirt msxml3 riched20 riched30 vb2run vb3run vb4run vb5run vb6run vcrun6 vcrun6sp6
the script will stop and send you to a download page – just start the script again once it’s downloaded

Now install Office 2007 – I copy the installation directory into my home directory as installing from the CD/DVD can chuck up error….. just follow this….

    This’ll probably put off Windows users wanting to migrate to Linux if they want MS Office running – but Linux has a couple of awesome Open Source (free!) office suites which can do things just as well – LibreOffice and OpenOffice
    Oh and when winetricks takes you to a download page it’ll probably open up a window to put that file in.. – copy/paste or just move it as it’ll download to your download folder
