Yes people, this really does work (and very well).

1. Install the latest wine from the community repo.

sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_13.1/ wine
sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper dup -r wine
sudo zypper in wine samba-winbind

2. Install office
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.office wine /setup/directory/setup.exe

3. The office apps should now be in your menu, if not… (change OUTLOOK.EXE for whatever you’re opening)
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.office wine ~/.office/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office14/OUTLOOK.EXE &

4. Add a library override for riched20:
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.office winecfg
Go to the Libraries tab, type “riched20” in the “New override for library” box, then click Add, then Apply.

If you need to configure Outlook:
First open Outlook, and tell it to NOT configure mail at this time (configuring mail within Outlook appears to be broken).
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.office wine control
Click on Mail. The rest is the same as if you were configuring on Windows.

Here are some more specifics for actually installing Office: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=17336
Only the 32-bit installer works. I happen to be using MS Office 2010 Professional Plus.

EDIT: Just install Pipelight http://fds-team.de/cms/pipelight-installation.html
Pipelight lets you run netflix in your native linux browser (it runs a wine application in the background and pipes info through it)!

With the big news that someone got netflix working using wine + firefox + silverlight, I decided to give it a shot on openSUSE 12.2.
There’s no rpm package available for this yet (though I’m thinking about making one, but don’t really have the time).

This is what I did to get it working:

1. Install the latest wine from the community repo:
sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_12.2/ wine
sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper dup -r wine
sudo zypper in wine

2. Install mstcore fonts (thanks Tyler):
sudo zypper in fetchmsttfonts

3. Install firefox version 14.0.1:
wget -O Firefox-14.0.1.exe http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/14.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Setup%2014.0.1.exe
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.netflix wine Firefox-14.0.1.exe

4. Install Silverlight version 4:
wget -O Silverlight-4.exe http://silverlight.dlservice.microsoft.com/download/6/A/1/6A13C54D-3F35-4082-977A-27F30ECE0F34/10329.00/runtime/Silverlight.exe
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.netflix wine Silverlight-4.exe /q

5. Watch Netflix!
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.netflix wine "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" http://netflix.com/

DO NOT use the latest versions of Firefox and Silverlight! They are broken in wine!

Looks like we don’t have to pay for an account anymore! Too bad they don’t have an rpm built yet 😦 but it looks like a Fedora rpm is at least on the way.

1. Install dependencies
zypper in libcryptopp-5_6_1-0 rpm-build alien

2. Get the debian package from Spotify
wget http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.8.4.103.g9cb177b.260-1_amd64.deb

3. Convert the debian to an rpm
sudo alien -r spotify-client_0.8.4.103.g9cb177b.260-1_amd64.deb

4. Install the rpm
sudo zypper in spotify-client-0.8.4.103.g9cb177b.260-2.x86_64.rpm

5. Link dependencies
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libnss3.so /usr/lib64/libnss3.so.1d
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libnssutil3.so /usr/lib64/libnssutil3.so.1d
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libsmime3.so /usr/lib64/libsmime3.so.1d
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libplc4.so /usr/lib64/libplc4.so.0d
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libnspr4.so /usr/lib64/libnspr4.so.0d

6. Run Spotify!
spotify&

Enjoy!
