Long Live Open Source Software !!

In my previous post, i told you about a free and open source software to open a corel draw file, edit it and then save it into another format, like svg. But if you just want to convert your corel draw file into another format without open it, maybe using the software which i told you before is taking too much time. Now, i’ll tell a story about another free and open source software that can convert your corel draw file into another format without open it.

It’s named UniConvertor. This is a universal vector graphics translator. It uses sK1 engine to convert one format to another. Development of the import/export modules for this program goes through different stages, quality and feature coverage are different among formats. With this free software, you can convert many format, not just coreldraw, into another format.

UniConvertor supports following file formats to be converted :

  • CorelDRAW ver.7-X3,X4 (CDR/CDT/CCX/CDRX/CMX)
  • Adobe Illustrator up to 9 ver. (AI postscript based)
  • Postscript (PS)
  • Encapsulated Postscript (EPS)
  • Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM)
  • Windows Metafile (WMF)
  • XFIG
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
  • Skencil/Sketch/sK1 (SK and SK1)
  • Acorn Draw (AFF)
  • And then, you can convert those files into this format :

  • AI (Postscript based Adobe Illustrator 5.0 format)
  • SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
  • SK (Sketch/Skencil format)
  • SK1 (sK1 format)
  • CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile)
  • WMF (Windows Metafile)
  • PDF (Portable Document Format)
  • PS (PostScript)
  • Okay, just like before, now it’s time for how to install UniConvertor in your computer. First, you must download the installer file or UniConvertor’s Source. You can download deb package for ubuntu 7.10 here or download its source from here. If you’re using another operating system, you can find the installer in UniConvertor download page.

    If you’re downloading from source, follow my tutorial before. If you’re using deb package, just type :

    dpkg -i uniconvertor_1.1.1-2ubuntu10_i386.deb

    Don’t forget to fulfill UniConvertor dependencies. And then just try it yourself. :mrgreen:
