Here is a short video of the error and above is the post you will use to fix the MS OFFICE 12 issue when you install on Lubuntu 15.10 x64.

 

**SPECIAL NOTE** If you use Powerpoint, follow the instructions in the post from the WINEHQ forum and test which URL advice will work best. I had to bypass the Microsoft fix prompts and just load Powerpoint for it to work which is indicated by the poster who found the original fix!
