Re: [K12OSN] Wine Problem

Does your boss know that MS Office 2000 is not much longer for this world, in terms of support and bug fixes?

Do you GNU!?
Microsoft Free since 2003--the ultimate antivirus protection!

Hi Everybody,

I know this is border line heretical, but please bear with me. My boss won't let me put in k12ltsp labs unless there is office 2000 available. I don't like it, but I trust that when the teachers have openoffice and office2k to compare, the choice will be obvious. Nevertheless, I am having a problem getting wine working for multiple users. I made a directory under /usr/local/wineapps and symlinked that to ~/.wine for my user account. I installed office and it runs perfectly under my username. My thinking was that I could make /usr/local/wineapps read only and make a symlink to it from every other user's ~/.wine directory. When I tried this out, it told me that the product wasn't installed. Has anyone seen this before or come up with a good solution for using office2k on k12ltsp? I am running k12ltsp 6, x64.
