What works

Before install: winecfg , locate riched20.dll and set it to native.

Install OK.

All common things that LibreOffice is capable to do , seems to work with a few tested sheets.

What does not

I have a XLSM file: I know it has macros that must create a new sheet and other elements to Sheet 1. But it does not works, and no clues why, not even an error message. The macro is silently ignored, a whole number of lines and a new sheet was not dynamic created as expected.

Workarounds

What was not tested

I did not created my own VBA macros yet.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

(Updated 2014-10-24)

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

After installing, set riched20.dll to native,builtin in winecfg. This is needed for some dialog boxes and numbers on graphs to display properly. It is not necessary to install the dll with winetricks, as Office installs its own version. Do not set this override globally unless you have Office installed in a separate wineprefix.


Window Resizing Issues

Workarounds for bugs 23805 and 30587:

Solution 1: Run in an emulated virtual desktop. This is probably the easiest solution for most users.

Solution 2: Uncheck "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg. The downside is that Excel will no longer show up in the taskbar.

Solution 3: (KDE users only) In System Settings, Window Behavior, do the following:

  1. Select Window Rules
  2. Click "New..." to create a new Window Rules
  3. Enter the description
  4. Window Class: Regular Expression: value *\b(winword.exe|excel.exe|powerpnt.exe)\b.*
  5. Check "Match whole window class"
  6. Check on tab "Size & Position"
  7. Check "Full screen": value Force, No
  8. Check "Ignore Requested Geometry": value Force, Yes
  9. Click Okay
