    The best way to install wine is through the Ubuntu package manager in your menu. Look for "Synaptic."

    Running MS Office under wine is problematic. See here for more. If you still want to give it a go, open a terminal and cd to where the install .exe is and do:
    Code:
    wine (whatever_the_installer_name_is_).exe
    If you cannot live without MS Office, the best option is to run it naively under Windows or in Windows installed inside a virtual machine. OpenOffice and Abiword do an excellent job under Linux.

    Install it and let us know if it works for you.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Have you checked their documentation, faq, and wiki pages?

    WineHQ - Documentation

    FAQ - The Official Wine Wiki

    FrontPage - The Official Wine Wiki

    They cover the usage of Wine pretty well and are good links to keep handy if you will be continuing to use Wine.

    So you've downloaded AND installed it? Follow the links ozar provides as they will be very helpful in running wine.

    Look at this page again;
    WineHQ - Microsoft Office (installer only)

    The Office 2007 Installer is rated as Silver.
    But if you look below the Installer ratings you will see the individual component ratings such as Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc.

    The ratings for those components span from garbage to gold but they require a bit of configuring not to mention getting activation to work.

    Good luck!

    Install it from wine, straight from cd.
