First of all, let me know if I should post this question on the WineHQ or Linux Mint forum rather than here.
I run Linux Mint Mate 18.3 (64 bits) on a computer, Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 (64 bits) on another.
On both computers I have the same problem:
I installed Wine through Playonlinux so that Playonlinux took care of all the wineprefix 32 bits installation issues of the only piece of software I need, namely MS Office 2007 (Word, Excel, Powerpoint).
I have three problems:
1) I cannot specify to Linux Mint that the .docx, .xlsx and .pptx should, by default, be opened with the MS applications under Wine. 2) I cannot access the printers to which I have access with my native linux applications 3) I cannot copy/paste from native linux applications to the wine MS applications.
Hopefully somebody has had these problems and the solution is already out there!
