Ubuntu :: Running MS Office In A Virtual Machine?

Jan 21, 2011

I am getting seriously tired of running MS Office in a virtual machine. It's been about 18 months since I tried running in on Wine, so I just checked out WineHQ and CodeWeavers and apparently usability hasn't improved at all.

I keep trying to use OpenOffice but whenever I open PowerPoint presentations they are always kind of messed up. This week, somebody sent me an MS Word file for printing labels for a mail merge and the label template file opened up blank. Anybody else have any brilliant work arounds or am I still stuck with my MS Office VirtualBox!! It's really hard to believe that its 2011 and Linux is still missing a world-class Office Suite...

General :: Ubuntu - Running A Virtual Machine On Windows 7?

Jun 5, 2010

I want to do two things: Set up a virtual machine on Windows 7 to run Ubuntu Set up a way for the virtual machine to read the windows disk or windows to have read/write access to the virtual machine's disk. My goal is to have a place where both Ubuntu and Windows can read and write. What software is good for this task? Are their free programs that can run virtual machines? Also if my machine is running Windows 7 64-bit, can I install Ubuntu 32-bit? Or am I forced to use Ubuntu 64-bit? Or does it not matter?

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Freezes When Running KVM Virtual Machine

Apr 8, 2011

I have 3 boxes running opensuse-11.4 64 bit - Phenom-I 2.6 GHz, Intel Q9400 quad core 2.66 GHz and Intel SU7300 dual core 1.3 GHz (the last one is a laptop). When I run a KVM virtual machine and load it quite a lot all host OS freeze. Interestingly, the laptop works the longest (hours), while the fastest system with Q9400 freezes in max. 10 minutes. After a hard reboot there is nothing in /var/log/messages This bug is 100% reproducible. The guest OS is either RHEL or openSUSE. Is it a 11.4 bug or I am missing something? Have not tried the same hardware with RHEL-6.

General :: Attempting To Get BackTrack 5 Running With A VMware Virtual Machine On Windows 7

Aug 23, 2011

I'm running a 64bit Version of Windows 7. I'm also dual-booting 64bit Ubuntu 10.04 (if it matters). However, for this I'm trying to get this working on the Windows 7 side of things. I downloaded the BackTrack 5 32bit GNOME .iso file (BT5-GNOME-32.iso) to my USB stick fine and made a VM on VMware Player. I set the OS as "Other Linux 2.6.x kernel" (if it matters). However, when I go to play my VM I get the following screen. I know I'm supposed to type Startx to launch the GUI. However, nothing happens; it's completely unresponsive (and yes keyboard focus is routed to the VM). There is no response, the cursor doesn't even blink.

Ubuntu :: RAM (4GB) Should Allocate To The Virtual Machine?

Jun 15, 2010

My current plan is to choose a lightweight host OS such as Ubuntu or XP, and then install a virtual machine with Windows 7 as the guest OS. Most importantly, I will use the guest OS almost exclusively. I would like to install all of my software onto the guest OS and then save a "snapshot", as Virtual Box puts it. This is to keep my system free of any unwanted programs I will undoubtedly encounter.

Here are some specific questions I would like answered:

What would be good choices for host operating systems?

What percent of my total RAM (4GB) should I allocate to the virtual machine?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using different visualization software such as Virtual PC, Virtual Box, and VMware Server?

I play a lot of games on Steam. What problems may arise?
