Office 2010 under Linux Debian

Publié dans Geekeries | Marqué avec , , , ,

Today I manage to make my official Office 2010 (32bits Academic version) working under my Linux, a Debian Bulleyes with wine 4.0.1. I simply used the following commands:

sudo apt install winetricks winbind
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wineoffice2010 winetricks dotnet20 msxml6 corefonts
WINEPREFIX=~/.wineoffice2010 wine ../hubiC/Olivier/WorkTrialog/Software/Office_2010_ProPlusAc_SP1_French_x32.exe

At this stage, Word and Excel seem to work correctly once you activate them online. PowerPoint is not starting…

Apparently, PowerPoint on wine « does not automatically use the riched20 installed by Office ». Therefore, we need to set riched20 to native in winecfg. This is what I did with success using:

WINEPREFIX=~/.wineoffice2010 winecfg

That’s it! Good luck for the installation of Office on Linux!

Oh by the way: I also have an Office 2016, but this is just dead to install it under Linux due to the last version of ActiveX, still not supported by Wine. Too bad.
