How to convert xlsx/xls Excel file into csv

A lot of times these files seem to lag and be incredibly slow even if just a few dozens rows of data.

Here is how you can convert it with "gnumeric":

ssconvert file.xlsx file.csv
 

You may get lots of weird errors like this but the conversion seems to work fine:

(ssconvert:15244): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: g_object_set_valist: object class 'SheetObjectImage' has no property named 'style'

(ssconvert:15244): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: g_object_set_valist: object class 'SheetObjectImage' has no property named 'style'

(ssconvert:15244): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: g_object_set_valist: object class 'SheetObjectImage' has no property named 'style'
