Change Locale

By default, Kingsoft office is in Chinese locale. We want English!

1. Copy the following into the terminal (note: leafpad is the text editor of my choice):

cd /opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/cfgs
sudo leafpad setup.cfg

2. Change UILanguage=2052 to UILanguage=default

3. Save and close the file.

 

Additional Settings

Just found the advertising homepage kinda annoying. You can change that by tapping Writer > Options > General and Save. At this tab here, we might want to change it to .docx for the default file type and check Start with.. New Document box!

Next time we start up the application, it should take us directly to the working space 😀

Have fun!!
