Hi visitors, in this website I will try to answer the question about whether microsoft office can run on ubuntu?or in other terms whether microsoft office can be used in ubuntu. Basically Microsoft office is not available in Linux version especially ubuntu version. I've read several articles from the Microsoft office forum/group (

Many people say that microsoft office is not support for ubuntu version. Of course this will disappoint some users who are already familiar with Microsoft office. Basically microsoft office is available for Operating Systems such as Windows and MAC, but for Linux Operating Systems is not available.


Many users use Linux as an OS because it is considered safe from viruses when compared to Windows OS. So it's no wonder some users want Microsoft Office to run on Linux.

And some offices that run on Linux operating system sometimes is taking so long when opened the big data and expect Microsoft office to run on Linux (Ubuntu) to help on opening of big data such as spreadsheet .

I try to get answers to questions about Microsoft office for Ubuntu through search engines like google, Bing and others. And I found some answers and in essence are the same methods and solutions. The solution is to use a program that called "Wine".

As in the windows operating system, Microsoft Office must be installed first before want to use it. Before installing Microsoft Office make sure Wine is pre-installed on your computer. Once Wine is installed on your computer, the next step is to install or run Microsoft Office in the Wine program.

For the record when I run "Wine", there is no problem at all. But when the Microsoft office installation process in using Wine program, it show notification error and that make me frustrated again. 

This not only baffles me but also make me desperate to find a solution about the words that it relates to (Microsoft office on Ubuntu, Microsoft office for Linux Ubuntu or how to install Microsoft office on Ubuntu).

Indeed, not all answers will be solved from some references from the search engine where from some references it is claimed to have proven successful accompanied by the video.

After despairing of the methods I got from the internet, I assumed that something was wrong with "wine". or there may be something wrong or a problem for the version of the Ubuntu operating system that I use.

Then I find out which version of Ubuntu that I use on my computer. And the operating system version of Ubuntu on my computer is using versions above 19. And it's true when I try to see reviews of "Wine" for the latest version, it can't work properly. And surely the next step is to remove the installed "Wine" program.


Of course for the present, anything made by man will surely be able to do and the answer is "Yes". Except for what God has created, Man will not be able to make or match what God has created. Back to "Microsoft on Ubuntu", I have found a program that can install and run Microsoft Office on Ubuntu. And the program is called "PlayonLinux".

And for the record I use "PlayonLinux" to run Microsoft Office on Ubuntu with the aim of learning. And Microsoft Office in Ubuntu that I use is using a trial version (not a full version). Ok, the first step is to install the PlayonLinux program on the Ubuntu Operating system, then run it. Once the PlayonLinux Program is running, the next step is to install Microsoft Office in the PlayonLinux Program. And for details pay attention to the steps below:


Install PlayonLinux program.

Once the PlayonLinux Installation Process is complete, then make sure you already have MS. Office Files either Trial version or Full Version (Buy). If you don't have an MS. Office file you can search and download it on the internet.

Make sure that PlayonLinux is already installed, and also Microsoft Office software (trial or full versio) is also already stored in your computer.

Next step is to run the PlayonLinux program and select the application type menu to install, in this case we select (Microsoft Office).

After you have selected the version of Microsoft Office that you want to install, then follow the next process until the installation process is complete.

After the installation process is finished, on the PlayonLinux menu will appear Microsoft Office Icons same as installed in Windows.

To run it, select one of the microsoft office products such as (MS. Excel, MS. Powerpoint, MS. Word etc.), then click Run, it will appear on your screen.
