Title: Problem with Kingsoft Office (Solved)
Post by: donwatson on July 28, 2014, 03:03:17 pm
Hi Mark,
I have installed Kingsoft Office and when I open any of the 3 programmes it produces the same error message.

Some formula symbols might not be displayed correctly due to missing ......Resolution
Can you help ?

Try this -

Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/wps-office
then:
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/share/fonts/wps-office
then (to download the missing fonts from my dropbox):
Code: [Select]
sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31525164/wps_symbol_fonts.zip
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo unzip wps_symbol_fonts.zip
and answer "A" if prompted .. then:
Code: [Select]
sudo fc-cache -vf

Now see if Kingsoft Office still moans about the missing "symbols" font.

Mark,
I want rid of Kingsoft Office, I am disappointed with the interface and I can''t read the mail I create.
How do I get rid ?

If you want to remove any program use the apt-get remove command followed by the name of the program you wish to remove

You would need to do this in root so the command would be
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge kingsoft-office

that should completely remove the application including any configuration files assigned to the application if you want to leave these files intact on your system miss out the "--purge" parameter

so the command would just be
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove kingsoft-office 

if that fails with a "cannot find package " error try replacing the kingsoft-office with wps-office


Good luck



Graeme

Why wouldn't you like the interface ?

Here's how I've set Kingsoft Writer to open

What's not to like ?

No "borrowing" from Microsoft going on here.....

Then again, MS probably "borrowed" it from Wordperfect and Lotus .. so who cares right ?

I feel a lot happier working with Libre Office. I thought there was too much going on in Kingsoft.
Thanks for the help
