visio file viewer?


good morning!

how does one view vsd files in linux? my customers insist on sending them to me, and i'm getting tired of bugging co-workers to print them for me. i've searched on google, and not found anything, maybe i'm not searching right, but i don't want to spend 5 hours on it...

thanks!

If you use KDE you can use KOffice that has a similar program like Visio(forgot the name).

koffice gives me a "Could not open document of type application/msword" error and then "Could not open file /foo/bar/blah.vsd"

it tries to open in openoffice by default, however open office prompts for a filter, none of which apply.
