Thread: Documents With .asp Extension

  1. #1

    Default Documents With .asp Extension

    I am using openSUSE 13.1, 64-bit, with Firefox 33.0.

    My bank offers electronic statements that have an .asp extension.
    Okular does not seem to be able to handle that format and shows a blank
    form.

    What do I need to use in order to see such .asp documents?

    .asp files are Active Server Pages, and handled on the server end. If you're being prompted to download these pages, there's an issue on the bank's side and you'll have to report it to them.

    .asp is a Windows Web format not a spread sheet file format. ie it is a dynamic web format and would not hold your readable data but a query to a data base that would return and display the data. In any case any editor should be able to read the file it just won't mean anything to you. There should be an option some where to download the data in a standard spread sheet or PDF format. There usually is such a options.

    When using Microsoft Windows 7, clicking on the bank statement link
    causes Firefox to open up a new window where the statement is shown in
    Acrobat Reader format.

    Doing the same thing in openSUSE opens up Okular but the statement is blank.

    There's got to be something that needs to be tweaked in openSUSE...

    Try Chrome. I had to do that with a bank, Firefox was unable to cope,
    the download did not start. If you select "download" on the link, you
    get that asp instead. Or something like that.

    I can't find Chrome in YaST. Did you perhaps mean Chromium?

    Nope, I mean Chrome, and of course it is not in YaST, but in Google.

    If I install Chrome outside of YaST, will I then be responsible for
    monitoring when a new version comes out?

    Is it possible to add the Google repository to YaST such that --I'm
    hoping!-- it will monitor when a new version of Chrome is available and
    prompt me to install it? How?

    I'm getting so confused about all this Linux software, some of it in
    official openSUSE repositories and some not... I don't quite
    understand the repercussions/mechanics of installing software that is
    not in official repositories or available via YaST!

    Nothing huge the repos are
    1 trusted source so you can trust them.
    2 free as in beer as well as speech for the most part

    external stuff you trust or don't up to you. I'd say Google is trustworthy but you opinion my be different

    Really is much easier then Windows programs which you have no idea where they have been.

    You can try chromium first. Unless the bank is using a chrome plugin, my guess is that should work.

    I haven't installed Chrome in Linux recently.
    You would install from http://www.google.com/chrome
    IIRC the install procedure automatically configures a Google repository so Chrome would be updated along with your other openSUSE apps automatically.
