Oh, that one broke my shortcuts in Plasma, so I removed the 3 xml files
from /usr/share/mime/packages/
then sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
then I assigned the .xlsx format to et, the .docx format to wps and it is OK now!

miku84 commented on 2017-06-25 10:38

That was big help, thanks!
I removed libreoffice file ( from /usr/share/mime/packages/ then sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime, then it is working!

8XA commented on 2017-06-22 23:19

The issue is in /usr/share/mime/packages/, with the wps-office-*.xml files. I have installed libreoffice and I have their xml file too, so I removed the wps-office-*.xml files and then I updated from console (sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime). That was my solution by now, I will check the wps-office-*.xml files later.

8XA commented on 2017-06-22 23:07

Did you try a clean installation or did you execute it with the gtk style as commented below?

I had the same issue, do as I did: Download the previous version
(wps-office_10.1.0.5672~a21_x86_64.tar.xz) from the next link:
Then, extract the tar.xz and execute any programm inside the extraction (wps, wpp or et). Change the language and close the program. Now in the same folder go to Office6, and in the "mui" folder the downloaded languaje will be there. Copy the languaje folder to /lib/office6/mui/. Delete the tar.xz package and their extraction.
Open any program (wps, wpp or et) and change the languaje. The network error is still there, but now you have installed the wished languaje.

Hello, I get segmentation fault when trying to open any of the softwares provided by the suite. I used to get this when entering presentation mode in wpp pressing f5.

/usr/bin/et: line 38: 26609 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} ${gOptExt} ${gOpt} "$@"

/usr/bin/wps: line 38: 21349 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} ${gOptExt} ${gOpt} "$@"

gmtrejo commented on 2017-06-22 16:39

After updating, I can't change the language. Option 'choose language' indicates "network error"

miku84 commented on 2017-06-22 16:00

After the install I am having issues to open the .xlsx and .docx files. They are shown as application/zip type and not those. The assignment for .xlsx and .docx are correct to WPS but the problem is that they are shown as zip type.
Do you know how to correct it? Plasma5 stable. Thanks

sl1pkn07 commented on 2017-06-21 14:35

@8XA /opt/kingsoft no exist in my system. after deleting $HOME/.kingsoft, $HOME/.config/kingsoft and $HOME/.cache/Kingsoft, same issue

removing wps-office and reinstall do nothing

@ouyangjun my DE is plasma, and have [testing] active.

EDIT: after intall pkgrev 2 works again, but in GTK style (as say in the changes)

8XA commented on 2017-06-21 11:31

That's right, now I run wps without the gtk style and without problems. The issue happened because I tried to make an upgranding (I tried to install the new version without uninstall the previous version).

You must to uninstall the previous version (yaourt -Rs wps-office) and delete the kingsoft folder (sudo rm -r /opt/kingsoft) fisrt of all, then you can install from yaourt again (yaourt -S wps-office).
A clean installation is the key.

ouyangjun commented on 2017-06-21 02:00

@8XA I think this is a problem upstream

ouyangjun commented on 2017-06-21 01:58

give us your running enviroment,it works well on my plasma.
or try a solution of @8XA

8XA commented on 2017-06-20 23:47

I had an issue after updating wps-office to the version, the programms could not open.
I have 4.11.6-1-ARCH with Plasma desktop.
When I ran writer, spreadsheets or presentation from konsole, it gave me back this message:

/usr/bin/wps: line 38: 2475 Segmentation fault ${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} ${gOptExt} ${gOpt} "$@"

The solution:
You need to run the programms with the gtk style, in this way:
- for writer: wps -style gtk+
- for presentation: wpp -style gtk+
- for spreadsheets: et -style gtk+

PD: I'm trying to improve my english.

@3V0LU710N Latest version which I was able to find was the same as this the version provided by this package. I'm thinking that press release was just PR.

EDIT: Fortunately I was wrong.

3V0LU710N commented on 2017-06-15 18:36

Hi all,

Maybe you already noticed, it seems WPS Office has a new version:


darsto commented on 2017-04-30 14:16

To work-around the dark theme issue, run the spreadsheet app with a separate light theme by setting GTK2_RC_FILES variable, eg.
GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Menta/gtk-2.0/gtkrc et

dreamingincode commented on 2017-04-06 12:52

If you answer y to "Edit PKGBUILD", you will see the following in your editor at the beginning of the PKGBUILD:

# Instructions were copied from ttf-ms-win8 and slightly modified:
# -------------------
# Please note, that usage of Microsoft fonts outside running Windows
# system is prohibited by EULA (although in certain countries EULA is invalid).
# Please consult Microsoft license before using fonts.
# You can acquire fonts either from an installed and up-to-date Windows 10
# system or the most recent install medium.
# On the installed Windows 10 system fonts are usually located in
# C:\Windows\Fonts
# and license file is
# C:\Windows\System32\license.rtf
# How to acquire fonts from Windows 10 install medium:
# You can freely download the Windows 10 Enterprise 90-day evaluation from:
# Fonts are located in 'sources/install.wim' file on the ISO, which
# is a 'Windows Imaging Format' (WIM) archive.
# You can extract WIM using wimextract ('wimlib' package from AUR) or
# 7z ('p7zip').
# Put the following script together with previously extracted
# 'install.wim' and execute:
# wimextract install.wim 1 /Windows/{Fonts/"*".{ttf,ttc},System32/Licenses/neutral/"*"/"*"/license.rtf} --dest-dir fonts
# Fonts and license will be located in the 'fonts' dir.
# You need all files listed in the _ttf_wps_win10[_*] arrays.Place them in the
# same directory as this PKGBUILD file, then run makepkg.

Just FYI, if you are ok to live with unknown copyright status and possible older version of the fonts, you can install ttf-wps-fonts instead, whose fonts are hosted on a GitHub repo last updated 2 years ago.

hi dreamingincode thanks for reply so quickly.

If I answer y to "Edit PKGBUILD?" what can I do then?

I am very new to Linux and esp Manjaro, not too confident with terminal, so any tips would be appreciated.

Or point me in the right direction if there is any reading material I can look at. Thanks again.

wps not working properly on KDE. It prints:
"Unexpected value after '--separate-output'."

micathia commented on 2017-02-28 12:42

Has anyone had the issue that I am having with wps?
1. new blank document;
2. create two or three lines with bullet points, the default round dot ones;
3. export to pdf.

only to see the bullet points are missing.

It's something to do with wingding copyright I think (i saw that warning on first run)? but I have all windows fonts copied to /usr/share/fonts before installing wps.

/tmp/alpm_7hYoZy/.INSTALL: line 151: mkfontscale: command not found

As archlinuxcn/repo#313[1] describes

wps-office.install executes mkfontscale and mkfontdir.
xorg-mkfontscale provides mkfontscale.
xorg-mkfontdir provides mkfontdir.
xorg-mkfontdir depends on xorg-mkfontscale.

please add xorg-mkfontdir into depends.

Does anyone have the same problem?

GLutz commented on 2016-11-08 20:58

I don't know why I couldn't install direct from the repository, the sources's URL are correct, but during the installationg it didn't download the wps's source and the installation failed. Then i download from browser the tar.xz, and altered the PKGBUILD to use the file that I downloaded, and it worked.

cgentry1972 commented on 2016-06-16 20:32

As mentioned earlier I believe the WPS Office team are working on an updated Linux version. Hopefully this will appear here shortly as well. It's such a great program but I recently switched to Monjaro from Mint and lost WPS.

kprkpr commented on 2016-04-07 07:49

Why that in the pkgbuild? PKGEXT=".pkg.tar"
Without that, it compress the pkg into .pkg.tar.xz and results in a lot less hdd space to store it (Like almost all the pkgs in aur..)

vise890 commented on 2016-03-18 12:19

I was not able to install it from pacaur. Manual install worked..

mailme45 commented on 2016-03-01 19:57

wps-office needs ttf-wps-fonts to avoid a sluggish start. perhaps this should be included as well?

rockrij commented on 2016-02-26 06:00

@Rainmaker, the problem is not with the icons. the cells in spreadsheet adapts the desktop theme. if the theme is light the cells are light too. if the theme is dark, the cells are dark too. the problem is with the cells, not icons. i don't have menu icon problems like yours, mine is fine. everything is fine except for the cells in spreadsheet.

Rainmaker commented on 2016-02-24 01:02

@rockrij; if you want to "fix" that (though I'm pretty sure it's actually "works as designed"), open the icons in /usr/share/<GTK Theme>/apps/<size>/wps-office* in GIMP and remove the transparency.

The images have (I think intentionally) transparent edges, which causes the color of the icon to adept to your desktop theme.

rockrij commented on 2016-02-23 02:23

I'm using Xfce. When using a dark GTK theme, WPS Spreadsheet's cells become dark too. I searched a lot but I can't find a fix.

Rainmaker commented on 2016-02-22 14:59

Installed this application. It works, but the icons in the system menu are not displayed.

Looking at the files installed, the icons will only work with hicolor, Captiva or Hawaii icon theme, and not with the default Adwaita theme.

Any reason why these icons are not installed for the Adwaita theme?

brittyazel commented on 2016-02-03 00:38

Ok I figured out what was wrong with installing with Pacaur, and got it patched upstream.

Alpha20 Patch1 已经更新。

brittyazel commented on 2015-12-23 02:40

Ok installing and updating through pacaur is what gave me the issues below. Manually building results in a successfull install, however it does get hung for an abnormal amount of time on the installing phase.

Something is weird with regards to pacaur though.

brittyazel commented on 2015-12-23 02:33

The latest install does not seem to be working for me. Updating resulted in me still being on version 9.1. Uninstalling and reinstalling results in having no wps-office entries in my programs list. Trying to uninstall told me that it wasn't installed.

The install isn't reporting any errors however.

SB_1611 commented on 2015-08-24 20:35

The package installs a system-wide defaults.list and mimeapps.list. That makes it impossible to default to a different word processor without having to 'sudo rm /usr/share/applications/*.list' every time. Very annoying...

@man1gold: It sounds like your clock is off, or you otherwise have an outside key issue.

patsfanczar commented on 2015-04-08 01:24

@man1gold Sounds like a separate key issue
try running "pacman-key --init" as root and see if that works.

@artem.jackson, right, top, where the close button, icon with the letter A. I didn't tried.

poincare commented on 2015-02-12 17:38

How can I install this on my armv7l processor? This seems to only be an x86 version.

artem.jackson commented on 2015-02-06 07:41

Is it possible to use russian language in wps office gui?

sergioad commented on 2015-01-18 14:22

well I saw the problem; the compiled WPS office package has wrong version numbers, please check the PKGbuilds and other things

sergioad commented on 2015-01-18 10:44

Hello friend can you fuse the wpsoffice and wpsoffice-common packages into one? having both separated causes some issues on Arch, when I install WPSOffice I have a permanen upgrade advice to upgrade wpsoffice-common so I need to uninstall it some times

helix commented on 2015-01-07 23:01

I just uploaded packages with dictionaries for 18 languages. You can add them in optional deps if you want. Enjoy!

anex commented on 2015-01-06 06:16

can you please fix your package build, when you build it it builds wpsoffice as 1.2 and not "wpsoffice-" so octopi just repeats there is a upgrade when there is not

LeonardK commented on 2015-01-02 19:28

why dont you use the tar.xz release and how is this one different from this pkg:

felixonmars commented on 2014-12-23 07:27

There are no 64-bit releases for quite some time (and not likely, in the foreseeable future).

This PKGBUILD will install the 32-bit version with the help of [multilib] repo.

jaydoc commented on 2014-12-23 01:00

Is this suitable for a 64-bit system? WPS office was supposed to have a 64-bit version but the PKGBUILD seems to require 32 bit?

xBytez commented on 2014-11-27 22:26

@Aetf I can still download from the source specified too.. but here's a mirror for you:

shmilee commented on 2014-11-14 09:17

1) According to the notes of A16 in url:, I think the language packages can be removed from AUR now.

2) The version of wpsoffice-common will be fixed in 1.2 util the depends(libsm, libcups, etc) for wps change.
aur/wpsoffice-common 1.2-1 ->
That is a mistake made by command `mkaurball`. Sorry for losing sight of that.
It seems that `mkaurball` behaves differently from `makepkg` in some details.

hotleave commented on 2014-11-14 02:01

"wpsoffice-zh-cn" depends on "wpsoffice" ->
"wpsoffice" depends on "wpsoffice-common" ->
"wpsoffice-common" conflicts with "wpsoffice-zh-cn"

what's a strange thing~~~ Please check this.

The "wpsoffice" and "wpsoffice-common" use the same source package, update wps-common will reinstall wpsoffice, also a strange thing.

Aetf commented on 2014-11-13 08:38

Got 'cannot connect to the server' if I open the link in browser, but I didn't remember it showing any exact error code.

Anyway, the link is working now. Maybe just temporary network problem. :)

felixonmars commented on 2014-11-10 10:48

What error did you get? I can still download from the current source at the moment.

Aetf commented on 2014-11-10 08:11

Can't download from the source for several days. Not sure it is my local network's or the server's problem. And two mirrors listed on download page of official site only contains a15 packages.
Anyone have another mirror available?


felixonmars commented on 2014-11-07 06:34

It works without a problem here. I'd suggest to report to upstream, thanks.

darioshanghai commented on 2014-11-02 01:43

Won't let me change page size, it'll freeze. Removing lib32-libcups, now it crashes instantly. I'm on an x64 machine... maybe the issue is with 64 bits? Ideas? I really love the word processor.

marlock commented on 2014-11-01 12:23

There is recursive upgrading.
==> Software upgrade (new version) :
aur/wpsoffice-common 1.2-1 ->
But after building package has version 1.2-1 and this repeats.

Please, move pkgver=${_pkgver} from line 52 to line 34 (before package_wpsoffice-common() function) and remove version dependency from "wpsoffice-common=1.2"

Now the "Category" of this package is "none", it would be more clear if it belongs to "Office".

Yes, I'll upload under the correct name and merge this package back :)

brittyazel commented on 2014-08-16 11:34

As kingsoft office is now universally going as WPS office, will this package retain the kingsoft name? It may be confusing for users looking for WPS office, with no prior knowledge of kingsoft office roots

gurqn commented on 2014-08-16 11:27

Ah, I understand now. Thanks a lot for the info and thanks for update on package. Have a good day.

felixonmars commented on 2014-08-16 04:48

The previous tar.xz archive was missing icons/desktop/mime, so a deb was added to extract the missing part (the deb is missing language packs and fonts, on the other hand). Now since I've contacted Kingsoft to fix this and the new tar.xz was uploaded, I'll update the PKGBUILD soon, too.

gurqn commented on 2014-08-16 04:44

Kingsoft already provided global CDN for their official source, and I'm going to stick to this as it's actually much faster for Chinese users as well.

You need to enable [multilib] if you want to use lib32-*

poincare commented on 2014-07-27 12:55

I cannot get this to "build" properly. Yaourt craps out, and thus won't build, with the following error:

However, if I execute "yaourt -S lib32-libpng12" (or -glu or -libxml2, etc) then yaourt reports such package is not available:
error: target not found: lib32-libpng12

How can I install these lib32* packages when they are not available in AUR...?!

felixonmars commented on 2014-07-09 05:47

Thanks, implemented.

bluerider commented on 2014-07-08 18:13

Please add lib32-libcups and cups as opt-depends for printing support.

evilgnome commented on 2014-06-18 17:12

I actually can't tell what the state of their 64-bit support is.

I downloaded their 64 bit binary and tried to run it as in the readme, and it complained of not finding, which exists on my system under /usr/lib/.

evilgnome commented on 2014-06-17 21:42

This seems to be hard-coded for 32-bit, though 64-bit is available.

brittyazel commented on 2014-04-09 07:35

We do not have access to any source code, so compiling ourselves is not really an option

dujiulun2006 commented on 2014-04-09 07:10

The Arch "Right Way" would be to strip the shipped version and build them by ourselves. But I give a thumb up for using them since compiling from AUR is painful.

felixonmars commented on 2014-04-05 06:27

FYI that I just removed {lib32-,}libjpeg6 from dependencies, since kingsoft has shipped it already.

felixonmars commented on 2014-04-04 12:42

Hi Martin,

Updated according to your tweak. Thanks a lot :)

flexiondotorg commented on 2014-04-04 12:20

Hi Felix,

I've been following your license thread on the mailing list. I'm interested in seeing this package gain popularity, it really addresses a need for me. To that end, I've done some tweaking on the PKGBUILD to clean up the `depends` a little, I've not addressed everything yet but the `namcap` report is looking better. You can find my changes in the following Gist -

felixonmars commented on 2014-03-31 07:25

:) I'm also trying to figure out the exact dependencies needed.

brittyazel commented on 2014-03-31 06:12

I see you switched us to downloading the .tar.xz file, rather than the .deb file. Nicely done. It seems to have significantly cleaned up the PKGBUILD and install as well.

brittyazel commented on 2014-03-28 17:06

Try downloading it again. It looks like you only downloaded ~70% of the package before the makepkg kicked in to build it. Which would explain the errors.

bsidb commented on 2014-03-20 08:58

@brittyazel, because Kingsoft Office Linux Team bought a new global CDN to provide better download speed for international user :)

brittyazel commented on 2014-03-20 04:21

Also, I do not know why were were not downloading from the official kingsoft servers before, but the download speeds are MUCH faster as of now. I downloaded the source package at ~600kbps

brittyazel commented on 2014-03-20 04:11

I updated this package with the new .deb link and sha1 code from here:

I do not have the time to be a permanent maintainer so I am abandoning the package until someone steps up. I hope this gets us going with alpha4 though.

brittyazel commented on 2014-03-20 02:33

Unfortunately it looks as if this package is no longer maintained. We would need a new maintainer to take over to continue using this package. Also, I noticed that there was a tar.gz file listed on the kingsoft office website, why are we extracting from the .deb?

They contain same files,and differ in depends only. Because of the long time of compression and their size, I add wpsoffice-common to deal with the depends of wps-office. I know namcap will gives many warnning about that.

That worked! However, that shouldn't have happened in the first place!

hagabaka commented on 2013-06-24 10:13

Actually since wpsoffice-common only contains the license, it should have arch=('any'), and wpsoffice should have ('i686' 'x86_64').

This is a split kingsoft-office package, which is different from kingsoft-office package in AUR.

Thanks for this package. It renders Office documents much better than LibreOffice.

I have a .ppt file which has a tiff logo. The logo does not appear. Is this a kingsoft issue or could it be that a lib32-libtiff dependency is missing? There is no error message when I run wpp from the command line though.

mikronimo: Your /tmp mounts on a tmpfs filesystem which is by default half of your RAM. To tell yaourt (or some other tool?) to use other place as a temporary directory, set $TMP, e.g.

TMP=/var/tmp yaourt -S kingsoft-office

BTW, if you find your running building will soon run out of space in /tmp, you can loose the limit by remounting:

mount -o remount,size=8G /tmp

if you need a compressed package you can delete PKGEXT from PKGBUILD,i don't care !but most of us need less time to make this package for Installation!

xgdgsc commented on 2013-04-18 02:37

AUR is mostly intended for individual users.The compression time is unbearable. Rarely do we transfer packages to others. You can compress yourself if you want.

lilydjwg commented on 2013-04-18 02:11

@JoveYu: What if I package it and transfer it to others via Internet or intranet? Yes, it takes a significant time to compress. But it takes much more for others to download. That's the issue I'm addressing.

schivmeister commented on 2013-04-17 23:58

Why does this mess with PKGEXT? What possible benefit is there by creating an uncompressed tar package that's inflated in size (compression only needs a little extra time)? Also, it needs many other programs post-install.

Excellent software, though. Looks like it can eat all the other free office suites for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I've particularly always been annoyed by Java :)

@cuihao 不明白你的意思 这个包是利用deb包生成的 没有用到官方xz包

cuihao commented on 2013-02-07 14:58

As the package is very large and compression takes much time, I suggest to use tar (without compression) package instead of default xz package. You can read this PKGBUILD as an example:

@jose1711 , I speak chinese and I'm trying to report it, but I am not sure what do you mean by "broken rendering" of that docx. Would you pls make a screenshot, thanks.

build error...
On my X64 versions, it shows "cannot find object file : lib32-libpng12 "
I hope that wps-office will come with native 64-bit support as soon as possible. WPS is great !

Thank you. :)

JoveYu commented on 2013-02-03 11:29

@felixonmars good idea,I will contact with them to discuss the license

xgdgsc commented on 2013-02-02 11:59

@Havanna It cannot be true. Should be lib32-glu.

Anonymous comment on 2013-02-02 03:45

please add the version of wps-office's dependence: lib32-libglu-git

I don't know why but it won't launch until I reinstall the following:

* lib32-freetype2
* lib32-libice

could someone speaking chinese please report (slightly) broken rendering of this document when compared to KSO/WPSO in windows? cheers, jose

felixonmars commented on 2013-01-31 16:23

I'm gonna move this package to [community] once we got proper license from Kingsoft, any ideas?

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-31 15:17

@JoveYu yeah, it works now. Thanks for your quick fix.

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-31 14:57

@ JoveYu: Yeah, you are right, after checking the extracted stuff of the .tar.xz package I found the same thing--it is not as complete and therefore should not be implemented as an appropriate source to build from. The PKGBUILD and install process for wps-office needs only copying the files to their corresponding places, and the .deb package just fits this purpose well. Thanks for the clarification.

JoveYu commented on 2013-01-31 10:40

.tar.xz file don't provide enough file for a package ,like icons , .desktop file , mine ...
if you use .tar.xz file to build this package,you still need to extract these files from deb package

wps-office need not you to use MAKE ,so deb package make it much easier to makepkg

JoveYu commented on 2013-01-31 09:55

for next release ,i will try to use .tar.xz to makepkg

Auguste commented on 2013-01-31 08:25

sorry, that's a typo. what upstream provides is a .tar.xz file.

Auguste commented on 2013-01-31 08:25

why not use the .tar.gz package provided by upstream directly?

we can put the source in noextract array and extract the content only once.

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-31 07:39

@ JoveYu: Yes, so could you just alter the sha1sums in the PKGBUILD and add the dep 'lib32-libcups'? These two are bugs already known. Thx~

JoveYu commented on 2013-01-31 07:21

I makepkg yesterday ,it seems work well , I think the deb package has been updated by kingsoft

Also @archlyx : the dependency to add is named 'lib32-libcups'. And @jiehanzheng : Check the comments below about changing the SHA1SUM line in PKGBUILD.

jiehanzheng commented on 2013-01-31 04:13

I keep getting this error message:
==> Validating source files with sha1sums...
wps-office_8.1.0.3703~b1_i386.deb ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build wps-office.

Perhaps the checksums are incorrect?

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-31 03:17

Could anybody kindly give a reason why the deb package is used instead of the official tar.xz package? Shouldn't the tar package be better for compiling purposes? The URL:

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-31 03:13

as below, sha1sums should be updated.

The sha1sums need to be changed:

Also it looks like the lib32-cups should be added as optional depends, otherwise you will receive a popout saying "libcups" needed.

Agree with cuihao's suggestion. limser and JoveYu should work together to make this PKGBUILD better. Looking forword WPS be in arch community repo one day.

Seems a lot of Chinese comments here.

I advice you guys post your comments in English (if possible) so Non-Chinese speakers can understand. This will help WPS to be known by more people and become internationalized.

@bsidb 说的对 wps是个好软件,为了不给开发人员带来不必要的麻烦还是不公布地址了吧 必定打包还是按别人的协议来的好 a8完后就会出b1了 倒是公测 会第一时间更新的 大家现在还是委屈点的 已经知道的就低调点吧 如果实在找不到可以email我

bsidb commented on 2012-12-12 01:14

楼主还是不要写地址比较好,毕竟WPS For Linux还不是公开版,发包的帖子已经严正声明不要大家公开这个下载地址.
既然已经向WPS申请了包,就要遵循他们定下的规则,否则就会失信于人.如果被金山的员工发现,这会影响Arch用户在WPS For Linux论坛的形象.
