You could set WINEPREFIX in your bash_profile, or make 32bit wine your default (then you only have to do WINEARCH=win32 winecfg). Anyway the two main problems I had were accidentally emulating 64bit (I know Wine Is Not Emulation) windows instead of 32 bit. Also I found that the programs hang if I didn't cd into the directory, probably because the dlls are linked with the local directory. Anyway everything works this way.

If you visit:  http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/frameworks/base.git;a=blob_plain;f=data/fonts/ and generate a password in a webbrowser then put it in ~/.netrc , then run the script without comments...might work.

Reason: please use the first argument of the template to provide a brief explanation. (Discuss in Talk:Microsoft Office 2007#)

Install

Note: To work with JPG images (i.e. in PowerPoint) install lib32-lcsm.

The following has been reported to work, using wine-1.5.0. See these forum posts for details:

Warning: You should never run Wine commands as root. Only run Wine as your user.

To get office 2007 working, install bin32-wine, winetricks and then run:

$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/win32 winecfg
and set Windows to XP and then run:
$ WINEPREFIX=~/win32 winetricks msxml3  gdiplus riched20 riched30 vcrun2005sp1 allfonts
$ WINEPREFIX=~/win32 wine setup.exe
and then to actually use any of the executables you must cd to the directory. IE:
$ cd ~/win32/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12
$ WINEPREFIX=~/win32 wine ./EXCEL.EXE

You could set WINEPREFIX in your .bash_profile, or make 32bit wine your default (then you only have to do WINEARCH=win32 winecfg). Two reported issues are accidentally emulating 64bit Windows instead of 32 bit and that the programs hang if you don't cd into the directory, probably because the dlls are linked with the local directory.

Office 2k7 SP2

Download from: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/confirmation.aspx?id=5

Install with:

WINEPREFIX=~/win32 wine office2007sp2-kb953195-fullfile-en-us.exe

Winetricks

The droid font downloader in winetricks is broken. The URL is part of the google git project. Either the maintainer of winetricks will update or kernel.org will change. You can elect to remove the droid font install from the winetricks script.

sudo nano -w /usr/bin/winetricks

Search for: do_droid You should see this:

do_droid() {
    w_download ${DROID_URL}$1';hb=HEAD'   $3  $1
    w_try cp -f "$W_CACHE"/droid/$1 "$W_FONTSDIR_UNIX"
    w_register_font $1 "$2"
}
load_droid()
