Kingsoft Office is a free alternative to Microsoft Office. Kingsoft Office comes with word processing, spreadsheet and presentation applications. You can also work with existing Microsoft Office files.

Here's how you can install it in Linux Mint 16.

1. Open a terminal window.

2. For 32-bit systems type in the following commands then hit Enter:

cd && wget -O kingsoft-office-NoobsLab.deb http://goo.gl/NxgJhF
sudo dpkg -i kingsoft-office-NoobsLab.deb
rm kingsoft-office-NoobsLab.deb

3. For 64-bit systems use these commands:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
cd && wget -O kingsoft-office-NoobsLab.deb http://goo.gl/NxgJhF
sudo dpkg -i kingsoft-office-NoobsLab.deb
rm kingsoft-office-NoobsLab.deb

The Kingsoft Office main interface includes a row of icons similar to what you'd find in your basic word processor or spreadsheet editor. It handles all the latest Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint file formats as well as text and PDF files.
