Smile Package for opening ..xps document for Lubuntu


Is there a Linux package for Lubuntu 12.04.3 that enables opening of .xps documents?

Said document opens by Browser (Firefox) in Open SUSE 12.1 - but Lubuntu 12.04.3 just lists a few files, none of which help open the .xps document.

Okular in the KDE desktop opens them just fine

Thanks John VV. Is there an equivalent for Evince with LXDE desktop that will do the job, as Evince is not available from the LXDE repository?

John VV - itīs Lubuntu 12.04.3 that I need help with, not Open SUSE 12.1 - that perform very well.

Appears that the Lubuntu 12.04.3 user may need to change distro to overcome the problem.
