I am unable to view images in .docx on Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu 10.10 and OpenOffice.org 3.2.1 (ooo-build, Ubuntu package 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu1.1)

Is there any tool to read .docx? Please note that I do not have access to Google drive and cannot use any related tools.

I tried to use DocXV.exe with Wine, in vain.

You could use LibreOffice

Install via the software center

or Abiword

Install via the software center.

  • Thanks! Abiword worked for my Ubuntu version, but only partially... Some images were still not viewable.

  • What type of images are not viewable? Are you sure your file is not corrupt? Just asking.

  • It is a state machine and flow chart kind of image. I am not sure about its format.

  • Aah. It might be native office format. Something like visio....

  • Maybe. So native office formats like visio are not supported on Ubuntu OOO?
