using microsoft word in wine


when i type in wine in terminal, i get this:
Wine 20030813

Usage: wine [options] [--] program_name [arguments]
The -- has to be used if you specify arguments (of the program)

Options:
--debugmsg name Turn debugging-messages on or off
--dll name Enable or disable built-in DLLs
--help,-h Show this help message
--version,-v Display the Wine version

for example, when i type in:
wine notepad
notepad opens up, but what i want to know is how to open other programs?
i tried typing
wine Microsoft Word
but it says program not found, so how can i open ms word through wine? (or any other windows program for that matter)

p.s. i have 2 partitions, one for windows (NTFS) and one for linux (ext 3) if these info are relevant.

Hi

I think you got the wrong name there,

Try winword, that should start Microsoft Word

Cheers

You've got to type the fully path of the executable following "wine."

So, let's just say your Windows partition lies on /dev/hda1: we need to mount it. Type "mkdir /mnt/windows" to create a mount point, and then type "mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows" to mount /dev/hda1 to the /mnt/windows directory that we created. Now, let's just say that in Windows, MSWord is located at c:\Program Files\MSOffice\winword.exe -- assuming you've already set up wine with a fake windows directory & registry, type "wine /mnt/windows/Program*Files/MSOffice/winword.exe" -- case sensitivity counts.

Hope that helps to get you started. If you'd rather set this baby up with a GUI instead, check out Crossover office (not free) that will easily allow you to install MSOffice along with many other Windows-only programs.

If you do not have windows and office in a windows partition, i.e. windows free wine setup.

Locate winword.exe

The file inside is probably inside /home/username/.wine/c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office10 directory, or something like that.

wine "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\winword.exe"
