WPS library fix for Linux for WPP

WPS for Linux is a great software for processing Microsoft Office files, however after installing the latest RPM on Fedora 27 I failed to start WPP (presentation).

The error message says:

/opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/wpp: error while loading shared libraries: libbz2.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libbz2 is a common library used by a lot of software, the one I installed on my machine is 1.0.6. If this library is not installed, please execute:

sudo dnf install bzip2-libs

By looking at /usr/lib64, we have libbz2.so.1.0.6. Since the one I installed is also on 1.0 branch, I though I would just do a soft link and try it out.

Execute the following command in /usr/lib64

ln -s libbz2.so.1.0.6 libbz2.so.1.0

Then WPP is then usable again!
