    WPS Office

    Hi all

    So I followed the link on the OMG Ubuntu page to install Kingsoft's WPS Microsoft Office like clone. Installation went well and exactly as described. However........

    It reads all my documents fine and when it does, all the formatting commands are on the ribbon but all the menus remain in Chinese!

    Any ideas how to change that? Looking at the screenshot on OMG they had English menus!

    The WineHQ page describing Kingsoft's compatibility is not encouraging -- as BRONZE indicates that an app BARELY works:

    Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    There is a WPS Office for Linux. It is Beta. It doesn't use WINE.

    Moved back to Genral Help forum.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Dual boot or use VMs if you want. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    Re: WPS Office

    You don't mention whether or not you followed the link in the article to correcting this ?

    Biggest drawbacks: the release is beta; it sucks at opening .ODT files. Oh, and the entire interface is in Chinese by default (though reader Mohammed Sayanvala has a fix for the latter on his blog).

    Re: WPS Office

    The linked worked fine and now I have three useable office programs! The fix was not perfect, some of the menus and dialogues come up in Chinese still. That said, I can live with it.

    Looks miles better than Libre...
