How to Install Kingsoft Office / WPS office on Archlinux with English Language

WPS office for Linux is free office suite, which includes free word processor, spreadsheet program and presentation maker. These three programs help you deal with office tasks with ease.

WPS office features:
Writer - Efficient word processor;
Presentation - Multimedia presentations creator;
Spreadsheets - Powerful tool for data processing and data analysis

Although it is a free suite, Kingsoft Office comes with many innovative features, including a paragraph adjustment tool, and multiple tabbed feature. It also has Office to PDF converter, automatic spell checking and word count features. In this latest version, new features such as watermark in document, and converting PowerPoint to Word documents are also supported.


On ArchLinux WPS Office is  is available through AUR repository.

You can install it using PacmanXG4 or Build from AUR link.

After Install it, then running it. By default it's using chinese Language.

to make it English do this after installation. I found solution from here:

$cd /opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/2052
$sudo rm qt.qm wps.qm wpp.qm et.qm

Then Restart the wps-office. Now wps office will be using english language, although not all is converted to english, but looks better.

Here's the main apps of Kingsoft / WPS Office.
