How to install MS Office 2010 on Ubuntu 11.10

Post by Kevin Alborough » Mon Nov 07, 2011 9:28 am

I am trying to install MS Office 2010 on Ubuntu 11.10 and having difficulty. I now get a wineboot.exe problem and can no longer access Wine. I have removed Wine 1.3 and re-installed but still get wineboot.exe problem. Can anyone help me get MS Office 2010 working in Ubuntu 11.10?

Many thanks :)

Delete ~/.wine and start over, following the instructions in the AppDB. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... &iId=17336
