I have a .flp file from http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Recorder-Planning-6181199/ which I would like to open. It seems that this is an ActivStudio Flipchart file.

How can I open it in linux/ubuntu?

  • Find an application that supports the *.flp file format in linux/ubuntu. Might I suggest google as a start? – mdpc Jun 8 '14 at 16:14
  • @mdpc That is of course where I started but I had no luck, – felix Jun 8 '14 at 16:44


Okay, so I'm pretty sure it's a Activstudio Flipchart presentation file. I did a TrID scan on it and it's a 81.4% match

As far as I can tell, I'd say it's a Fruity Loops Studio project file.
But I could be wrong and it might actually be a Flash Project file. More info here.

What I do know for sure is that the FLP file you mention is a ZIP archive, so you could just rename it to <SOMETHING>.ZIP and you'll be able to see what's inside of it.

What I saw inside was several FPG files (no idea what those are) and THM files (which turned out to be just BMP bitmap files) and a bunch of other files.

  • Thanks. Now how do you actually open it? – felix Jun 8 '14 at 17:43
  • You need to download and install Activstudio Flipchart – Vinayak Jun 8 '14 at 19:04
  • That seems to be a Windows executable? – felix Jun 8 '14 at 19:05
  • Yes, that's correct – Vinayak Jun 8 '14 at 19:08
