comment Why dpkg says 'illegal package name in specifier' when I try to remove a package?
OK, but this is a deb file not provided in the software centre, this is one I downloaded from the net. I ran it (your code) and it failed

Ubuntu is a Linux distribution, not a separate entity from Linux.

I do have other wine programs installed firstly, secondly I'm running 32 bit. Perhaps that makes a difference.

I've tried all you've described and it failed. It was MS Office 2007 too.

Interesting how you mentioned Apache OpenOffice I've tried getting it -- you can't on 12.10. It did work on 12.04 and when I used it its equation editor was identical to that of LibreOffice and as insufficient. As for Calligra its formula editor is inadequate.

I know that I am well-educated in LaTeX already. In fact I used to use LaTeX to type equations more efficiently in MS Word when I used it on my Windows 7 OS. My previous comment was about if there's any better LaTeX editors or for that matter any office suites with equation editors that are better.

LaTeX, yeah, I know. I've tried Lyx Document Processor just wondering if there's anything better on Ubuntu than it.

Just improving spelling, grammar and adding another tag to make it easier to find your question.
