Is there any way to do this into Writer?

I have a number of files I originally created with FrameMaker (back
when I still used Windows), and I could never get it to create the
proper PDF output files, but I was able to create PS files from them.

Now I'd like to put them into ODT format so I can edit, or even just
view, them again in Writer.

I've tried using ps2pdf, but that doesn't format the file properly and
the output looks like crap.  One problem seems to be that the PS file
was created with a dual column format, and that seems to throw ps2pdf
way off (which is odd since it displays perfectly in the document
viewer, but that refuses to print the file to a PDF).

For that matter, does LO support importing FrameMaker files?  that
would be even better - I think.  I tried it but all I got was 500
pages of junk (the file is 24 pages long).

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

At this point I'm looking at printing them all out, scanning them back
in and using the scanned PDFs, but that seems wrong.



Install Ghostscript and run "gv" (ghostview).
