    Opening .pub files and manipulating without publisher

    Hi All,

    I have large problem I need to get resolved before my fiancee destroys our computers. I have finally gotten to the point where almost every computer in the house is converted to Ubuntu. Well I have a little bit of problem, she needs an application that can not only open, but also be able to manipulate publisher files. She brings work home with her and just emails it to herself, and we do not have publisher as most of our machines are Ubuntu. Anyone know of any applications that will be able to do this? I really appreciate all the help.

    You could try this site. http://www.pdfonline.com According to their website: "PDF Online is a free PDF Online Converter and Creator from Word DOC, Excel XLS, Powerpoint PPT, Publisher PUB, and many more."

    Maybe it will be helpful for you
    I remember when this used to be fun...

    Publisher is unique, proprietary, Windows and because of that darn near impossible to convert to other formats. Most commercial printers hate it.

    About your only hope is to buy a copy of Publisher and run it in Wine.

    The only website able to convert PUB files online I found was http://convert.neevia.com/
