How to install MS Office 2007 in WINE in Linux Mint 11 Katya

Postby vistad » Tue Aug 23, 2011 4:29 am

*Uninstall Previous Versions Of Wine
sudo apt-get remove wine
*Remove the hidden Wine folder:
rm -rf ~/.wine
*Add WineHQ PPA Repository
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
*Install the latest version of Wine on Linux Mint
sudo apt-get install wine
* Run winecfg so that it might create its folders, and click OK to close it.
winecfg
You will find it at $HOME/.wine location.

If you use Wine, you might fine GUI for Wine handy. It will help you manage wine prefixes and installed applications. See my post at http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=79918
************************************
Install Microsoft Office 2007
Despite winehq.org's strong recommendations to install Office12 into a separate, dedicated wineprefix (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... n&iId=4992), my experience shows that installing into a separate wineprefix results in "IOPL not enabled" error. I've spent 2 days looking for a workaround - there is no workaround. The only feasible way is to install into the main wine folder. To achieve programs separation you may install your other wine programs into separate wine prefixes.

Next insert your Office12 CD, rightclick setup.exe and choose Open with > Wine Windows Program Loader. Proceed as usual.

If you store your CD as .iso file, you can mount it with gCDEmu - analog of Daemontools, which is the only app I know so far that can mount, dismount and make files (mounted to /media) accessible to Terminal calls. (http://cdemu.net/). See my post on How to install GCDEmu: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=79916

Instead of using CDEmu, can't you just right-click the ISO > Open With... > Archive Mounter?
