How to install Office 2007 in Ubuntu

Now trying to install Microsoft Office 2007 in my Ubuntu Linux I had a pretty severe headache, and that it did not work. Luckily the footsteps of another tutorial and adding some personal knowledge, I could run both Office and Power Point in Linux without any problem.


1 - First you have to make sure you are running the latest WINE in linux To do this just to look out if the parameters are the same as the following command:

  • sudo apt-add-ppa repository: ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wine1.3

2 - Go to Applications - Wine - Wine And set then click Applications Tab, There select the option "Windows Version Windows XP"And click Apply.

3 - Now we start the installation of Microsoft Office 2008, for it we just run the installer and begin installation of the Office generally.

4 - After that, we go to Applications - Wine and Wine Set, There must Books click "on writing a new Libo" and you must write "riched20.dll" and then click Add.

Thereafter both Office and PowerPoint should work without problems.
