Hello Xubuntu users, the new Kingsoft Office 9.1.0 for Linux is now available. Here I want to share how to install Kingsoft Office 9.1.0 on Xubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn. This tutorial also can be used on previous Xubuntu 14.04 as well. Current Kingsoft Office 9.1.0 Alpha 14 comes with many features and bug fixes. Compared to OpenOffice or LibreOffice, Kingsoft Office has a better look and pretty much easier. Since there is no PPA repository for Kingsoft Office, we can install this application using DEB file.
