It's pretty complicated and sometimes the system freezes when I try to download and install wps office. I think it is much more convenient to use the terminal. But I never used installed WPS Office from the command line. That would be great if I could update it using software manager or terminal. Third party deb files are from separate locations. I specifically want to know about WPS


OK so...

32-bit (depending on your hardware - check by uname -a):

cd && wget -O wps-office.deb http://kdl.cc.ksosoft.com/wps-community/download/a21/wps-office_10.1.0.5672~a21_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i wps-office.deb
sudo apt-get -f install && rm wps-office.deb
wget -O web-office-fonts.deb http://kdl.cc.ksosoft.com/wps-community/download/a15/wps-office-fonts_1.0_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i web-office-fonts.deb

For 64-bit:

cd && wget -O wps-office.deb http://kdl1.cache.wps.com/ksodl/download/linux/a21//wps-office_10.1.0.5707~a21_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i wps-office.deb
sudo apt-get -f install && rm wps-office.deb
wget -O web-office-fonts.deb http://kdl.cc.ksosoft.com/wps-community/download/fonts/wps-office-fonts_1.0_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i web-office-fonts.deb

And that's it.

Edit: As the wget links are likely to break at every version change, you can also visit the download page here as noted by JonasCZ in this comment


WPS Office is an office productivity suite, including Writer, Presentation and Spreadsheets. WPS Office is a native snap package in Ubuntu. To install it in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu open the terminal and type:

sudo snap install wps-office  

The wps-office snap package will be updated automatically when updates are available.
