PostPosted: Sat 02 Jan 2016, 19:09    Post subject:  WPS Office (Kingsoft) Latest Beta + Language Packs 06/24/16
Subject description: Office suite with the look and feel of Microsoft Office
 

New Release of WPS Office (Write-Presentations-Spreadsheets) (formerly called Kingsoft Office)

The WPS Office is a closed-source office suite that has the look and feel of Microsoft Office. It is light-weight and runs well on low end computers. This latest beta of WPS Office is improved and now has excellent compatibility with MS Office documents. The WPS Office Suite can now import/export open XML files from MS Word, MS Powerpoint & MS Excel. This new version now supports Charts & Graphs in Presentations (Powerpoint). This program includes all dependencies needed to run. The programs with dependencies install to /opt/kingsoft/


This is an SFS and PET file of WPS Office for Linux Alpha21 dated 2016-06-24 using wps-office_10.1.0.5672~a21_i386.deb as source.
The default language is english. This is the 32bit version.
Runs fine in Puppy Precise 5.7.1 & other late-model puppies.
Not for version 4.xx puppies.

Additional information about the sfs & pet
Chinese templates removed (saved 7MB)
Removed the environmental variable %f when launching programs.
Copied appropriate icons to /usr/share/pixmaps/ for menu icons.
Installed missing core ttf fonts to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF due to error on initial run of program. Now starts with no errors.
This version does not leave a watermark when printing. (as far as I can tell).

Language Packs Two Ways - Install from either internet or from PET package.
After installing WPS, if you are connected to the internet, you can go to --- File->Tools->Switch Language then Uncheck "Follow system locale" in "Choose Language" dialog box. There will be many different languages available but you have to be connected to the internet to see and download the language pack(s). Choose/download your language and then shut down and re-start the WPS program, the language pack installs after program re-start. Some of the language packs are incomplete, ---> view this chart for information regarding developement/completeness of the various language packs. These do not include the spellcheck dictionaries

Hi 8Geee, thanks for the concern but it works fine in english Smile

Also, the link to the sfs is english with the chinese stripped out.

The link I provided to the WPS web site http://wps-community.org/download.html suggests to only use the A20 in chinese, it says you might have some bugs in language other than chinese.

"Due to the development cycle problem, this release is intended to release for Chinese only. You can wait for next release or upgrade to this, but there might have some bugs that not function properly in language other than Chinese."

Been using it in english for two weeks with no ill effects to speak of and one small bug, when you change ui from original you have to change it back to original before trying another one of the 5 skins provided.

All in all it functions wonderfully and is an improvement over the A19p1 version.

Try it, you might like it. Wink

Code:
# wps
/usr/bin/wps: line 38: 28852 Illegal instruction     ${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} ${gOptExt} ${gOpt} "$@"
#


This happens regardless of whether "$@" is in the *.desktop file. Puppy Precise 571 Retro, Dell Latitude CPi D300XT (Specs. Correction: max ram 256mb, which mine has).

EDIT: local guru says I've got too old a relic. Guess I'll check out Softmaker, which is known working on this system with this Pup... oh well...

Illegal instruction is cpu too old, so we learned that it does not run on PII processor. Thanks for the feedback.

A pity it's closed-source Sad I'd be at least willing to try a compile effort on it, if I could...

@perdido:

Would you happen to know if WPS has acquired a love for Francophones
since its last version?

It's a great suite, great-looking and all, but 275 million people on this
planet can't use it!!!

I did champion it for a while, until I fell out of love discovering that I couldn't
write a simple letter in my own language with it.

BFN.

PostPosted: Mon 04 Jan 2016, 03:19    Post subject: Watermark?  

WPS office works well. Half the size of Libreoffice & fast.
Site docs say free version user docs will print with a watermark after 30 days, but I advanced the date in my bios & rebooted & no watermark.
Note: WPS office doesn't seem to be able to open earlier than office 97 docs/ssheets.

PostPosted: Tue 12 Jan 2016, 20:24    Post subject: Landscape printing workaround  

I can't print landscape on my Brother 1210W printer - Libreoffice allows one to select PDF (default) or Postcript printing.
Postscript allows landscape printing on the Brother (and other printers, I suspect).
I've scoured forums & wps files for that option - unsuccessfully. The win version has a print setup dialog, allowing a choice.
Workaround is to Export to PDF, which then launches PDF viewer, then print from there. Success!

Hi Musher,

Sorry for this delayed response, I could not get logged in to answer.

It seems WPS has love for a lot of languages, including Francophones, as many languages appear to be in the process of translation.
See ----->http://wps-community.org/dev.html

There is a link at the top of that page that goes to github where the language packs reside.

Hi ozsouth,
Good catch, my Brother MFC-j450DW does not print landscape with WPS either. Thanks for supplying a work-around!
