Thread: Wine is not responding or not working!

  1. #1

    Default Wine is not responding or not working!

    Opensuse 12.3
    Hello everyone! I have install Wine to be able to install my MS office 2007 [I can't live without excel-VBA ] So when I do the left-click and choose "Open with Wine" nothing happens.
    I have also download notepad++ (filehippo.com) just to be able to see if it's my cd exe from my cd-drive that's not working but even notepad++.exe doesn't work.

    I will try with VirtualBox meanwhile any help?

    The easiest way to install MSOffice in Linux is via PlayOnLinux. I would do the following:

    Code:
    sh-4.2$ su -
    sh-4.2$ zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_12.3/ "games"
    sh-4.2$ zypper in wine playonlinux
    sh-4.2$ exit
    Then make sure the setup.exe media is mounted on your machine. Press Alt-F2 (assuming you use KDE), then type
    `playonlinux' -> enter and install MSOffice through PlayOnLinux.

    You can try to install Notepad++ in Linux, but bear in mind Linux has a lot of better text editor options. If you have
    KDE install `kate', and if you have GNOME try `gedit'.

    This of course is not correct. If MSOffice is installed via PlayOnLinux, the correct *.dll dependencies are pulled in to
    make MS Office work.

    .... and more . But of course, I wouldn't recommend Vim or Emacs to a Notepad++ user!

    Try to run it in a terminal window:
    Code:
    wine setup.exe
    or similar.

    That (alone) won't work for MS Office. A few changes need to be made in winecfg to make MS Office installable. I used to
    these manually. Since PlayOnLinux makes the necessary changes automatically I no longer use the manual approach.

    I quite agree, Vi can't. Vim on the other hand is another matter .

    I haven't tried to install it in wine yet, so I don't know what's needed to do that.
    Running it in a terminal should at least provide a clue to the problem.

    Hm, since when has vim a WYSIWYG-mode? Or can use different text styles, formatting, tables, ...
    It's a completely different tool with a completely different purpose...
    If "word" was meant to say WordPad, I do agree though...

    That's only if you're interested enough to know the idiosyncratic DLL depencies of Microsoft Office. Someone has done
    this job for you.

    > Hm, since when has vim a WYSIWYG-mode?


    If you really think what-you-see corresponds actually to what-you-get in Word, then you haven't used it enough .

    What you say is of course true. Vim is a text editor, Word is word processor. Just let's not pretend Word's any good at
    anything like producing properly formatting tables, figure handling, and it's certainly terrible as a editor!
