I have recently switched from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 12.04. I want to know how to install Microsoft Office (specifically, Microsoft Office 2010) in Ubuntu? I am a die hard fan of MS Office and I want to know the way to use it in Ubuntu?
Note that the first few images are from myself, and the rest are from here since I don't have a MS Office 2010 CD.
The following tutorial also works in Ubuntu 12.10.
Download PlayOnLinux using the commands:
Search for the Microsoft Office version you want to install (in our case, it's MS Office 2010).
Choose Other. I'll assume that you have your MS Office 2010 CD.
Insert your CD and type
Although you can install MS Office, I recommend using LibreOffice (which is installed by default). It's a free Office Suite that is compatible with all your office files.
You can install Playonlinux. PlayOnLinux is a graphical front-end for the Wine software compatibility layer which aims to simplify the installation of Windows-based application.
If you have the CD, you can follow the instructions there. If you don't you can buy the CD here, you should also be able to buy the CD in the computer store nearest you.
