About the software issues, you can go to the official feedback problem. I'm just a packager, I can not solve the software problem.

@attenuation: I just created my own PKGBUILD for this package so I noticed somethings I thought it's no good, can you update the PKGBUILD if it's suitable?

I think it should remove zh_CN in office6/mui because it failed on someone don't have zn_CN locale like me

rm -rf ${pkgname}${pkgver}${CARCH}/office6/mui/zh_CN

For depends I check with namcap are: openssl-1.0 glu qt4 libpng12 sdl2 libjpeg-turbo (make curl optional because it show in WPS, but I don't know why WPS need curl?)

For License file, EULA_linux may be more suitable than EULA?

For package location, I think it's better to install in /opt/kingsoft/wps-office, because gInstallPath will fallback to /opt/kingsoft/wps-office by default in wps-office bash script (et wpp wps)

For people are using dark theme like me, maybe you like put this into prepare() function in PKBUILD

sed -i -e 's/%f/-style Cleanlook %f/' ${pkgname}${pkgver}${CARCH}/resource/applications/wps*

my pkgbuild (my install script is only printf function):

Here's a quick fix for the theme issue sudo sed -i 's|${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} |${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} -style gtk+ |g' /bin/et /bin/wpp /bin/wps

@Universebenzene maybe you include this pach to the PKGBUILD. Somethink like this: echo $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP | grep GNOME > /dev/null 2>&1 && sed -i 's|${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} |${gInstallPath}/office6/${gApp} -style gtk+ |' et wpp wps

Also I whould include a ms-fonts patch, like this:

cd /tmp
git clone
cd ttf-wps-fonts
sudo bash
rm -rf /tmp/ttf-wps-fonts

@simgunz, thanks for this information. After remove wps related mime files, everything go back to normal now!!

simgunz commented on 2018-09-21 09:09

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.

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:

This package exists in the AUR as 'odf-converter':

alexei commented on 2018-07-25 03:35

Links dead again. There's an older version (5707) available via torrent here (it's alive):

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

edarblanco commented on 2018-07-13 01:13

after upgrading I get this error wps does not exist!, help, please, and thanks

@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.
