Ubuntu: Installing Microsoft Office 2010 in Ubuntu 17.10 with playonlinux does not proceed


When I tried to install an application with the help of playonlinux, an empty space came back after some time and the process didn't move forward.

Although my internet connection was very good I still waited for a long time, but the process did not make any progress and did not remove the blank space...

I'm using X.Org.

What can I do to solve this?

It's easy to fix. Just remove outdated libraries that ship with wine on playonlinux. In my case:

rm ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/1.7.52/lib/lib{z,gcrypt,jpeg}*  


Had the same issue in xorg /wayland.

Found a workaround posted to bug #5562 by sheepex (Fedora 26 : Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. (ABI issue??) | playonlinux.com)

rm ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux//lib/libz

According to the Fedora form thread (linked in sheepex's comment), the issue is with playonlinux shipping with outdated lib32-zlib files.

Removing lib32-zlib fonts does not impact the activation process.
