Running MS Office 2010 on Ubuntu 18.04 x64

Note: As of time of writing, PlayOnLinux requires Wine’s 32-bit package installed and runs only 32-bit MS Office 2010.

Process

  1. Install 32-bit Wine package.
  2. Install PlayOnLinux (it will download the most appropriate version of Wine).
  3. If LinuxMint 19.1 Tessa, install xterm: sudo apt-get install xterm
  4. Install winbind
  5. Provide available installation (CD or mounted ISO) of MS Office 2010 32-bit.
  6. Install through PlayOnLinux by specifying the same version listed on the right.

Commands

sudo apt-get install winehq-stable:i386

If the package name is no longer the same, you can do a search with “apt search winehq”.
