WPS / King Office - Some formula symbols might not be display correctly due to missing fonts: Wingdings, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3 (FIXED)

I just installed WPS on my machine.. and received a warning said :
Some formula symbols might not be display correctly due to missing fonts: Wingdings, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3

Well, this warning still exist since the earlier Alpha version that I tested 1 years ago. I don't know why they still didn't fix this problem. Here, I share how to fix this problem :
$ cd ~/.fonts
$ wget -c http://api.kriptonium.com/wps_symbol_fonts.zip
$ unzip wps_symbol_fonts.zip
$ rm wps_symbol_fonts.zip
$ sudo fc-cache -vf

  1. Hi,

    I tried this on Arch Linux but it doesn't work - I still get the error when opening a doc with those fonts. I've also go the fonts present in /usr/share/fonts

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    1. The ~/.fonts are deprecate in Arch linux if I not mistaken. Have you check the AUR package? Sorry, I not familiar with Arch distro yet.

  2. Hey, better add "mkdir ~/.fonts" before cding. The ~/.fonts directory will not be there by default.

  3. You have to create wps-office dir under /usr/share/fonts
    extract wps_symbol_fonts.zip into that directory

    sudo fc-cache -vf

    cheers
