Install

(10.25.11)

This works great:

From forum post: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=86436

Note: You should never run wine commands as root. Run it as your user.

...to get office 2007 working for me I installed bin32-wine, winetricks and then ran:

$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/win32 winecfg
and set windows to xp and then ran:
$ WINEPREFIX=~/win32 winetricks msxml3  gdiplus riched20 riched30 vcrun2005sp1 allfonts
Note: See winetricks section below!!!
$ 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). 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.

Note: I did not have to run via command or script like the guy does though. To execute the software I could just open it from the applicaiton menu.

winetricks

The droid font downloader in winetricks is broken. The url is part of the google git project. I just chose to remove the droid font install from the winetricks script. I think you could create a .netrc file with password information in it but I did not test it or do it this way. This is what I did:

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()
{
