I have installed it using winetricks and am running wine 22.214.171.124 because this is the only version i've been able to get MS Office 2007 running. I'm using the desktop release of Ubuntu 9.10

Once the install is complete, set an override for riched20. Do not install it with winetricks--Office installs its own riched20, but the override needs to be set.

Thanks alot! I think I'll just restart with a fresh install for Ubuntu, and try the things you've said. Much appreciated.
