OpenXML (docx,…) suport in OpenOffice

I’m starting to get .docx in my mail lately ( against my will…) and not using Microsoft Office and not beeing able to ask people to send at least .doc, I had to do some search to give some support do OpenOffice to this “format”.

Novell has created an OpenXML Translator for OpenOffice, and I found this guide at sigmundvoid. (I’ve just made some small changes)

This was tested in Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty Fawn”
