Installing WPS Office
The first step is to download the software. You can use the following links:
The download links are the current version (September 2017). You can download the software directly from the WPS office website.
Once the package is downloaded the installation is pretty simple. Just go to the location where you downloaded the package and install with a right click. As you can see in the screen-shot, in my case I install the package using gdebi.
Once the package is installed we can start to configure the office suite.
Install Additional WPS Office Fonts
At the time of opening the program it is more than possible that they get the following error:
Some formula symbols might not be shown correctly due to missing fonts: Wingdings, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3
The reason for this error is that there are missing fonts in the operating system. To install the missing fonts download the following file.
Once downloaded the file you have to decompress its content in the ~ / .fonts location. To do this from the location where we downloaded the file we execute the following command in the terminal:
unzip wps_symbol_fonts.zip -d ~ / .fonts
Then reload the list of sources by executing the following command in the terminal:
sudo fc-cache -f -v
The installation process for the fonts is now completed. The next time you start WPS Office, you will no longer see the error that appears.
Note: Installed fonts will only be available to the current user. If we want them to be available to all users we will have to install the fonts that we download in the location / usr / share / fonts
Install the dictionaries in WPS Office
Download the dictionaries from the following url:
To install the dictionary we will unzip the contents of the file that we have downloaded to the location ~ /.kingsoft/office6/dicts/ . To do this from the location where we downloaded the dictionary we execute the following command in the terminal:
unzip en_US.zip -d ~/.kingsoft/office6/dicts/ Archive: en_US.zip creating: /home/user/.kingsoft/office6/dicts/en_US/ inflating: /home/user/.kingsoft/office6/dicts/en_US/Changelog_en_US.txt inflating: /home/user/.kingsoft/office6/dicts/en_US/README_en_US.txt inflating: /home/user/.kingsoft/office6/dicts/en_US/dict.conf inflating: /home/user/.kingsoft/office6/dicts/en_US/main.aff inflating: /home/user/.kingsoft/office6/dicts/en_US/main.dic
Open WPS Office -> Go to the Review tab, click the Spell Check button and when the sub-menu appears click on Set Language.
Then the window where we have to select the language of the spell checker will appear. And click Set default.
Select the dictionary that you want to use in WPS Office. After completing these steps we will have spell checker ready .
