If you have the "ERROR: One or more files failed the validity check!" problem, try cleaning your AUR cache first, and try again.

[ATTENTION] The new international version (11.1.0.9080) removed zh_CN support, login, and some other functions. If you still want full functions, or you want aarch64 support, you may need the Chinese version from https://linux.wps.cn here: https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/wps-office-cn

I split the /usr/share/mime/packages/wps-office-*.xml files to the wps-office-mime package to avoid mime issues. If you still want the mime files provided by wps-office itself, you can install the new mime package.

There is no official 32-bit package for version 11.1.0.8722, so I drop the support for i686 arch. For archlinux32 users you can create another wps-office package for 32-bit system yourself.

When you shut down wps-office, the wpsoffice process may still exist. You can do sudo chmod -x /usr/lib/office6/wpsoffice to fix it. But this might bring you problem with signing in.

The three files: /usr/share/mime/packages/wps-office-*

breaks the MIME file associations of docx, xlsx, pptx files in manjaro. Indeed these files are seen as zip/archive. If we set a default application for docx, this app will be used to open pptx, xslx, and zip by default.

By removing those three files and updating the mime database with

sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

everything works correctly again.

Maybe the package should be modified to not include them?

(I have libreoffice installed, not sure if removing the files and not having libreoffice breaks something else)

The install script use command mkfontscale & mkfontdir, which are from xorg-mkfontscale & xorg-mkfontdir . Show these two pkgs added to deps?

Just wondering what the main differences are between the new 6634 release and the older 5707 release? I had a look at the Chinese site, but my Chinese is not good enough to deal with it.

If the differences are minor, I'll stick with 5707.

Thanks.

It could be good to have a 'odf-converter' package as a required dependency to ensure out of the box compatibility with Open/Libre Office documents.

this article recommends the package for Open/Libre Office documents compatibility: http://help.wps.com/articles/odf-ods-odp-document-in-wps-office

This package exists in the AUR as 'odf-converter': https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/odf-converter/

Links dead again. There's an older version (5707) available via torrent here (it's alive): http://www.pcds.fi/downloads/applications/office/officesuites/wpsoffice/linux/wpsoffice.linux.html

If someone has the latest tarball saved, please post a link.

@overclockedllama If you don't want the WPS Spreadsheets following the system color, run qtconfig-qt4 and change the Build Palette section to what you want and Save.

Or add -style=STYLE to the WPS commands, et -style=Cleanlooks for example.

Unable to install wps office on Manjaro this day. Errors about path, translations and directories. It'is a fresh install of Manjaro updated.

overclockedllama commented on 2018-06-26 06:31

The new update has changed my wps spreadsheet background and the formula bar to all black so I cant see anything I type. I think this might be a theme/gtk issue. I am using awesomewm. Is there any way to change this? Also, "automatic", seems to be white? This is very strange

timxx commented on 2018-06-21 14:48

I made an languages package for wps-office, hope you enjoy it. LoL
