How to
­­­­­­­(Updated 2015-01-20)

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. ­

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 Powerpoint 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
(The downside of this solution is that the KDE panel will still be visible in Slide Show mode.)
