WPS Spreadsheets

WPS Spreadsheets

WPS Spreadsheets belongs to WPS Office, a complete office suite for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Apart from Spreadsheets, the suite also includes WPS PresentationWPS Writer, and a PDF editor.

The main advantage of WPS Spreadsheets is its high compatibility with Excel files because it supports XLS, XLSX, and CSV. Exporting spreadsheets to PDF is available but the output file will contain a watermark, which is a limitation of the free-to-use version.

When it comes to editing, Spreadsheets offers a decent set of features. The app supports hundreds of formulas and functions organized by categories, so you can easily find the required formula to analyze complex data.

Also, Spreadsheets easily allow you to present data using a built-in collection of table and cell styles as well as various formatting tools. Customizable charts, pivot tables, and modeling tools make it easy to process data and make forecasts.

Install/Uninstall .deb files

The package files associated with Kubuntu have the .deb suffix because of Kubuntu’s close relation to the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. You can download and install individual .deb files. You will need administrative privileges to do this (see the section called “Root And Sudo”).

  1. To install a .deb file, simply Right click on the .deb file, and choose Kubuntu Package Menu->Install Package.
  2. Alternatively, you can also install a .deb file by opening a terminal and typing:
    sudo dpkg -i package_file.deb
  3. To uninstall a .deb file, remove it using Adept, or type:
    sudo apt-get remove package_name

Install RPM File with Yum

You can use the yum package manager to install .rpm files.

Enter the following:

sudo yum localinstall sample_file.rpm

Install RPM on Fedora

To install an .rpm package on Fedora Linux, enter the following:

sudo rpm -i sample_file.rpm

Just as in CentOS, the -i switch tells RPM to install the software.

Another method is to use the dnf utility to install the package:

sudo dnf localinstall sample_file.rpm

Unlike many Linux tools, DNF is not a set of initials. It is merely the next evolution of the yum package manager.

Here is the example:

# sudo rpm -ivh ./wps*.rpm

Finally, Launch and Enjoy WPS Office. From Terminal with:

# wpsoffice
