Open Microsoft Office 2007 .docx files in 64 bit Ubuntu Jaunty with odf-converter-integrator

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

Recently I had to make Ubuntu system to properly deal with Microsoft Office 2007 XML based .docx file format.
I achieved that in the following way:
1. Use the following odf-converter-integrator download link to download odf-converter-integrator-chocolate. The release offered in my case was odf-converter-integrator-chocolate_0.1.4-1b_amd64.deb.
2. Next install it with:
dpkg -i odf-converter-integrator-chocolate_0.1.4-1b_amd64.deb
Sounds simple eh? Indeed it is. Now you’re ready to open docx files with your 64 bit Ubuntu Jaunty GNU/Linux natively in OpenOffice.
