Install Kingsoft Office 9.1.0 Alpha 15 on Elementary OS Freya

By default, there is no Office applications installed on Elementary OS Freya (Beta 1). I hope there will be at least one Office apps installed on the final release. On this tutorial, I am going to show you how to install Kingsoft Office 9.1.0 Alpha 15 on Elementary OS Freya. I choose Kingsoft other than LibreOffice or OpenOffice because Kingsoft Office has better user interface compared to the other two. When I write this post, the latest version of Kingsoft Office 9.1.0 Alpha 15 is available in DEB format. So its easier to install it on Elementary OS.

  1. Hi, thanks for your post it was really helpful! How did you get that Yoesmite-looking Dock on your Freya desktop? I’ve been looking for a theme like that for a while but can’t find it, yet I keep seeing pictures of it online more and more.
