Download options

If you do not knew what is your Ubuntu installation architecture type following in your browser uname -i. You should see something like this in terminal output x86_64. It means your installation architecture is 64 bit. So you should select wps-office_10.1.0.6757_amd64.deb

In terminal window navigate to directory where you saved your file using cd command. In my case it is Downloads directory under user’s home directory. Then type following command:

cd ~/Downloads
sudo dpkg -i wps-office_10.1.0.6757_amd64.deb

If you noticied in order to install WPS office you need super user permissions. After executing last command wait until it will compleates and then you can start using WPS office.
