When starting W writer for the first time there is an error about missing fonts "Some formula symbols might not be displayed correctly due to missing fonts Symbol, Wingdings, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3,  MT Extra

Is there away around this, or is it a simplt install from somewhere ?

Thank you

Any advice on this one please ?   Are these fonts available as a download. I use them currently in the MS environment
the "solve" link goes to a Chinese / Japanese page I don't understand. 

Thank you

Those fonts are normally not necessary, they are things like Wingdings etc. which seldom get used. A reason they are missing is that they are copy-writed m$ Windows fonts.

You can download them from here:

Then open a terminal and enter the following commands:


cd ~/Downloads
sudo unzip wps_symbol_fonts.zip -d /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/.
sudo fc-cache -fv


After that WPS Office should not show the message anymore.
