1) First install all the packages for Wine

#sudo pacman -S wine winetricks wine_gecko wine-mono lib32-ncurses

2) Then install ttf-ms-fonts for microsoft fonts support

#sudo pacman -S ttf-ms-fonts

OR

#yaourt -S ttf-ms-fonts --noconfirm

 

3) After that, Set up Wine Architecture and Wine Prefix as win32

#WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/wine32 winecfg

4) Then, install msxml3 for msoffice2007 and msxml3,msxml6 for msoffice 2010

(for msoffice2007)

#WINEPREFIX=~/wine32 winetricks msxml3

(for msoffice2010)

#WINEPREFIX=~/wine32 winetricks msxml3

&

#WINEPREFIX=~/wine32 winetricks msxml6

5) Now, install samba package for winbind package as the lib32-libwbclient(winbind) package is discontinued in arch linux

 

#sudo pacman -S samba

6) Now, install the msoffice by running setup.exe file through wine.

 

#WINEPREFIX=~/wine32 wine /path/to/msoffice/folder/setup.exe

Example:
