Now you can open and read documents written in the notorious Microsoft Office OpenXML (*.docx) with OpenOffice.org OpenXML Translator.
What you need to do is download the OpenXML translator from GetDeb.net and install it in your Ubuntu Linux operating system.
Your OpenOffice.org application should be able to read documents files in *.docx format after this. Note that you need to restart your OpenOffice.org Writer if you can’t see the Microsoft Office 2007 OpenXML option under the Load/Save dialog.
