 I have been able to import wmf files to GIMP then save them as png and use in 
scribus. Color on most is fairly good. The linux version of XNView will not 
open a .wmf file directly. The only way I know the windows version of XNView 
opens a .wmf is to save the .wmf to the clipboard and then paste it into 
XNView, then you can save it as another format. I think using GIMP is easier 
since it will open it directly from my Windows parition.
