View Full Version : [ubuntu] how to open .pub files (any viewers I can use?)

Why people still use Publisher these days, I have no idea.

Anyway, obviously I'm using Ubuntu and OO...

Does anyone know of a reader/viewer to open .pub files?

I've been emailed a .pub document, otherwise I'd email back and ask them to convert it into PDF format (or better, word). If i did that, they'd probably look at me like i have two heads!!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but as far as I know, the .pub format is proprietary and can't be read outside of MS Publisher.

If you find a way, I'd love to know about it!

there are online converters that can convert from .pub to another format, but I would recommend just asking for a word format.
