    I need to open a .pub file

    Someone sent me a file in Microsoft Publisher .pub format.
    Is there any way I can open the file in Ubuntu?

    Try Scribus:

    sudo apt-get install scribus
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    According to their web-site. Scribus does not open MS Publisher files. Is the site out of date?

    Your file can be converted online to .pdf, or, say, .doc:

    Thanks guys.
    I hate having to jump through hoops for people who assume everybody uses the same software that they do.

    Yes, that is annoying. There are certain file types that should be used universally on the internet for certain uses. Any PUB file should be sent as a PDF if it's in an e-mail or provided on a website.

    Scribus is the most well known open source alternative to Publisher. I'm surprised it doesn't open publisher files.....seems silly. But thanks for the conversion tip, it helped!
