This question already has an answer here:

I have installed wine-staging from this site in my lubuntu 16.04 box , and also installed WPS 2016 (setup.exe) in wine.

So after installing WPS successfully ,i am trying to run WPS spreadsheet from wine using command line but i am not able to find its executable file i,e .exe for spreadsheet.

For example i have also install MS office 2007 in wine & executable for MS office(2007) Excel file is located at

/home/wineuser/.wineprefix/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office12/EXCEL.EXE

And it can run using below command from terminal :

WINEPREFIX=~/.testadmin WINE=/opt/wine-staging/bin/wine /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine ~/.testadmin/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Office/Office12/EXCEL.EXE

So my question is how can i run WPS spreadsheet under wine in lubuntu box 16.04 , where its executable actually located ?

    Why are you using WPS in Wine? You can use WPS natively in Linux. – edwinksl Jul 20 '17 at 4:38

    Browse "drive_c" and you should find it. – user692175 Jul 20 '17 at 4:47

    Looking for the executable in the settings folder makes no sense. It should be in the exact folder WPS is installed in Windows, "Program Files" or something, just like you did for MS Office. – user692175 Jul 20 '17 at 5:01

I have figured it out.

When i have install wps_setup.exe in wine at that time , the setup had ask me to where to install WPS , by default i go with next next details and clicked install now , so by default setup installed in

"C:\users\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Kingsoft\WPS Office\"

but again when i run wps_setup.exe from wine and choose installation path to

"C:\Program Files\WPS Office\" which was correct way.

So the setup install correctly & also i have figured out exe's

for spreadsheet its name et.exe at

~/.mywineprefix/drive_c/Program\ Files/WPS\ Office/

for word its name is wps.exe at

  ~/.mywineprefix/drive_c/Program\ Files/WPS\ Office/

for presentation its name is wpp.exe at

~/.mywineprefix/drive_c/Program\ Files/WPS\ Office/

where is WPS version.

After this i am able to run WPS spreadsheet in wine using command

WINEPREFIX=~/.mywineprefix WINE=/opt/wine-staging/bin/wine /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine ~/.mywineprefix/drive_c/Program\ Files/WPS\ Office/
  • and there is wpspdf to view PDFs. Thats the linux binary. Windows equivalent is probably wpspdf.exe – Max Aug 21 at 6:53
