How to
­­­­­­­(Updated 2012-6-10)

Follow the directions in the Microsoft Office (installer only) entry to install. ­

  • ­ ­­­­­­­In order to run Powerpoint 2007, you must set riched20.­dll to (native) in winecfg. Note that you do not have to copy the dll from a Windows partition or use winetricks to install it. Office 2007 installs its own version of richedit in a private directory, but Wine will not use it unless you set the override.  Do not set the override globally unless you have Office installed in a separate wineprefix.

  • The default bullet characters are from Wingdings. If you want them to look the same as on Windows, install that font.
  • For mp3 sound to play out of the box, you must have 32 bit libmpg123 installed on your system and Wine must have been compiled with mp3 support. Not all distro packages provide this. ­The workaround for lack of winemp3.acm is to use the codec installed by WMP9,  l3cod­eca.acm. Copy l3codeca.acm to the wineprefix's /windows/system32 directory (or use winetricks to install WMP9), then create a symlink to it named winemp3.acm in ­the same directory. ­
  • To insert and play movies (wmv, avi, mpg), you must have the necessary 32 bit gstreamer-plugins installed on your system. The specific gstreamer-plugins you will need will depend on what codecs your videos are encoded with ("good," "bad," and "ugly" are likely candidates); check the console output for messages about missing gstreamer plugins if audio and/or video playback fails. If you are on a 64 bit system, make sure that you have the 32 bit versions of the plugins installed. (Note that older versions of Wine required the installation of codec packs into the wineprefix for video to work in Powerpoint; this is no longer necessary.) 
  • In 1.5.x Wine, wmv and mpg files can be inserted and played in Powerpoint without any tweaks, but inserting and playing avi files requires the installation of Windows Media Player (9 or 10) to the wineprefix.
