I installed a clean wine prefix. I installed the Microsoft .net framework 2.0 as per http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=3754. I then installed Microsoft Office 2007 as per http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=4992 and it is working.
I next installedTurningPoint_PC_4_2_3.exe
It opens Powerpoint correctly, and allows me to create polling slides and do other functions internal to Powerpoint.
What does not
The hardware is not recognized by my OS (Ubuntu 10.04), so I can only prepare presentations, not do the actual polling from my machine.
What was not tested
I have not tried opening the presentations on a Windows machine to see if the polls set up under Wine will work. I will update when I have tested it.
Installs fine after dotnet20 is installed, but only good for presentation prep, not actual polling during presentations
