Brackets & WPS Office running

Sat Jul 11, 2015 6:56 am

I'm now able to run both Brackets and WPS Office Suite in Solus. :D

1) Brackets (Code the Web). I downloaded brackets.deb file from their website and uncompressed it. There were two compressed files data.tar.gz and control.tar.gz + debia-binary relevant to debian distributions. Next I uncompressed data.tar.gz and moved all the files under opt directory to /opt/brackets and provided relevant permissions to the /opt/brackets folder and files inside it.

2) WPS Office. WPS office is a proprietary Office suite and depends upon libpng12.so.0 file. I again downloaded the latest beta of this office suite and uncompressed the .tar.gz file available on their site. Next I copied libpng12.so.0 to the lib dir of the WPS office and YAY... its working.

It seems your downloaded file is corrupt. Can you please download the file again and check. Alternatively, check whether the compressed file is getting extracted in some other distro/Windows PC. If not then the downloaded file is surely corrupt.

Please unzip the following file inside office6 folder. It contains three files:
1) libpng12.so
2) libpng12.so.0
3) libpng12.so.0.50.0

Thereafter, open console and execute following:
1) cd to where you have extracted the files.
2) sudo mkdir -p /opt/kingsoft/wps-office
3) sudo cp -R office* resource font* .
4) sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/kingsoft
5) sudo cp wps et wpp wps_error_check.sh /usr/bin
6) sudo chmod 777 wps et wpp wps_error_check.sh

Once, these steps are complete, in console type et or wpp or wps and the required application will be launched.

Right now, I do not know how to add these apps to menu. :(

Excellent.. :D

However, line number 9 in your script should be tar -xvf wps.tar.xz not .xs. Please make corrections.

Hello,

Would it be possible to break down the installation for Brackets just a little further? For example, I can't find the /opt directory so I'm not sure where to go after extracting everything.

Thanks,

Drew
