Did you mean Microsoft office 2007? 🙂 It can install to Ubuntu using wine. We must use wine 1.3 because it includes winetricks. Now see these tips:


  1. Download and install msttcorefonts-offline here:
  2. Now add wine's ppa address to repositories: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa.
  3. Install wine with this command: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine1.3.
  4. After it installed, run wine from terminal.
  5. Pick component to install: msxml3, dotnet20, gdiplus, riched20, riched30, and vcrun2005.
  6. Follow the guide to install Microsoft Office 2007 until the end.

Now you have Microsoft Office 2007 running on Ubuntu.
