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

  • any views on how to update it from terminal? Aug 5, 2021 at 11:34

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  
sudo snap connect wps-office:removable-media

wps-office-multilang a multilanguage snap package for WPS Office. It is a slightly larger snap package than wps-office which contains the WPS Office Suite and support for many languages. In order to install wps-office-multilang type:

sudo snap install wps-office-multilang  

To list the supported languages of wps-office-multilang run snap info wps-office-multilang.

The wps-office snap packages will be updated automatically when updates are available. If you didn't already update it from the terminal you will receive a notification from the Software app to install the latest update when it becomes available.
