Have you tried reading the documentation? Also, yes, you'll need Wine or CrossOver to be able to use Windows software on Linux. Otherwise, find a Linux equivalent (is OpenOffice.org not suitable?).

No, I am used to Ms Office,

How To Install Microsoft Office 2007

In current Wine, simply install as you would in Windows:

Make sure your version of wine is set to Windows XP.

Insert the disk.

Open the disk and right click on setup.exe and select "Open with wine windows program loader." Or open a terminal, navigate to the disk, and run the installer with:

wine setup.exe

The progress bar in the installer window may stop when it reaches about 2/3 of the way. The installation is continuing, even though the the progress bar is not moving. Wait for it to finish.


Post Installation Instructions*

Once installed, one override is necessary. Without it, Powerpoint and Infopath with not start, and some dialog boxes in other Office apps will not display correctly. Follow the steps below:

Open winecfg by going to Applications > Wine > Configure Wine. Or open a terminal and type:

winecfg

In the Libraries tab in the area labeled "New override for library" type in riched20.dll and click on Add.

You will see it appear in the list below. Now select the riched20 in the list that we just added and click on the Edit button.

Set it to Native (Windows) and click OK.

This will allow Powerpoint and the other applications to run correctly.

Have you solved your problem now? If so, then mark this thread as such (look under "Thread Tools" at the top).
