I have succesfully installed office 2007 using Wine under 1 account on my parents computer (which now runs on linux mint 13 LTS XFCE). I installed it under 1 account and normally, when you do this in windows, it is installed for all accounts.
But because I have installed it under Linux using Wine, this does not apply to this situation.
therefore, my question is: (How) can I make office 2007 also available for the other user? I guess activating for the 2nd time (which is needed after install) will not work.
Can I install it on another drive besides the win c drive and have it shared this way? Can I also create a shortcut in the wine 'start' menu under 'programs'?
edit: I have successfully followed the tutorial provided by @slm. Each user now has msword available, although it has been installed only once using wine.
I have created a starter (for ms word) which uses this starting command:
sudo -u windows -H wine "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office12\\winword.exe"
And I have placed this starter in the 'office' section of the mint menu by adding the starter in the applications directory. I have edited the starter in my default editor (either gedit or leafpad):
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Microsoft Word Comment= Exec=sudo -u windows -H wine "C:\\\\Program Files\\\\Microsoft Office\\\\Office12\\\\winword.exe"\n Icon=/media/Schijf-2/MS-Word-2-icon.png Path= Terminal=false StartupNotify=false Categories=Office
It is now perfectly listed under 'Kantoor'(which is Dutch for Office).
The only thing I have not succeeded in was having all word documents open with ms word. Perhaps I will try to do that in the future. Only setting
.docx files to open with ms word was enough for me at this moment.
