Maybe i’m asking a question which is already answered or a wiki has been made for it. I need WPS Office due to the MS Office compatibility. But when i look here, i see .deb,.rpm and .tar.xz files. I know i can’t use the .deb and .rpm but what about that tarball? Or can i find WPS Office in the official repositories of Arch/Antergos?
WPS Office installation
It is in the AUR.
I found it easier -as a noob myself- to install it using Yaourt.
Type: yaourt -S wps-office
Yaourt will download and install WPS office all by its lonesome.
You might be prompted to type “Y” or “N” during the process but it is pretty easy. I dont recall exactly but it might ask if you want to edit something or other- type “N” (unless you want to edit something or other, in that case type “Y”), It might ask you to continue installing- type “Y” (unless you change your mind, then type “N”)
It doesn’t work. I get errors like this:
cp: fout bij schrijven van '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-nomko/aur-wps-office/pkg/wps-office/usr/lib/office6/chart/styles/style261.xml': Geen ruimte meer over op apparaat cp: fout bij schrijven van '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-nomko/aur-wps-office/pkg/wps-office/usr/lib/office6/chart/styles/style201.xml': Geen ruimte meer over op apparaat cp: fout bij schrijven van '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-nomko/aur-wps-office/pkg/wps-office/usr/lib/office6/chart/styles/style313.xml': Geen ruimte meer over op apparaat ==> FOUT: Er is een fout opgetreden in package().

Sorry for the Dutch but it reads:
Geen ruimte meer over op apparaat No space left on device
FOUT:Het is Makepkg niet gelukt om wps-office te bouwen. ERROR Makepkg not successful building wps-office
Wilt u opnieuw beginnen met het bouwen van wps-office?[j/N] Do you want to start again building wps-office (Y/N)
If i press J (Yes) the same appears again. What can it be? IS it that i try this first in Virtual Box?? Maybe the amount of disc space is limited under BV i have 80 GB reserved for Antergos under VB.
Sorry. I don’t know enough about Arch to analyze that for you.
For me it worked. I am running Angergos with Gnome DE. Don’t know if that matters.
I used Yaourt -S wps-office from Terminal. I said NO for editing any documents and I said YES for continuing to install. Maybe one of pros in this forum can help.
i had a similar problem once on OpenSuse, i hadn’t enough space at root (couldn’t update programs).
Maybe your ram and swap wasn’t enough, well i’m still learning about Antergos, sorry i can’t help much more than that.
did you create partition / and /home separated? Maybe one os them is full… What about the swap?
I assigned 2 GB RAM to VB and a disc size of 80 GB. Should be enough i guess? And my swap is also 2 GB.
Well in an almost similar situation ( 2GBs RAM, 3 Gbs swap), I couldn t build Viber. But I was actually having a 1.6 GBs RAM because my GPU was eating the 400MBs.
I don t know what you ve loaded in the 80 GBs HDD but I don t think this is the culprit.
