My preference amongst all free office suites is still SoftMaker FreeOffice (freeoffice.com) - compared to Kingsoft Office, ui looks unspectacular, but it is effective and comfortable. No issues, no quirks and oddities, it works fast and reliable. And, above all, it provides the best import and export filters for Microsoft Office formats.

Softmaker free office had an issue with copy/paste of images on my end - e.g. if you copy a piece of webpage containing an image only text would be pasted into their text editor application.

Kingsoft office still has some bugs, and some functionality, e.g. charts in Excel, is still not there, but it works acceptably quick and i had no issues of compatibility with MS Office, except for the charts.

Bthw, a newer Patch4 to the KSO is available on their website, hope another one will be coming soon - seems they issue patches once in 3-4 months.

PostPosted: Today, at 00:53    Post subject: official deb package installs directly on MintPup
Subject description: and probably DebianDog too I expect


I have also installed wps onto my MintPup installation. I expect your sfs package could be loaded onto MintPup, but since I wanted a permanent install I just installed the deb package itself from:


Note that both a 32bit and 64bit version is available.
Would probably work fine in DebianDog also.

After downloading the deb, installation I completed the installation by entering the following commands into a terminal (at directory I stored the wps deb file in):

dpkg -i  wps-office_9.1.0.4975~a19p1_i386.deb
apt-get install -f
apt-get install xdg-utils

The last line of the three above was required to complete the installation (to do with the startup menu I think).

Just for completion, I also copied some MS ttf fonts (aerial, calibri, courier new, georgia, palantino, symbol, tahoma, times new roman, verdana, webdings, wingding) into MintPup directory /usr/share/fonts/msfonts. I could have used [code]apt-get install msttcorefonts[/core] to get the fonts from Mint/Ubuntu repository, but that has python 2.7 dependency, which I didn't want, and I only wanted a few fonts. I therefore simply just copied the fonts over from my MS Win7 windows/fonts directory as an alternative method...

Very nice looking office suite (Writer, Spreadsheet, and Presentation) actually and fast too. Gives choice of MS office ribbon type user interface menu or traditional older-style top menu. Works well with docx (but doesn't handle open office odf formats, though I don't use these anyway). I haven't checked if the free download has any major limitations otherwise, but seems fine for my needs anyway.
