I have 2 files that are supposed to be my company's logo in a "raw" type

I can't get gimp to edit them, but was wondering if there was some sort
of extension/plugin etc that can. If not, does anyone know where I can
go from here?

Look into 'imagemagick'. It says that 'eps' is Adobe and is silent on 'ai'.

$ identify filename2.eps PDF 595x283 595x283+0+0 DirectClass 663kb 0.000u 0:01
filename2.eps[1] PS 231x102 231x102+0+0 DirectClass 97kb 0.000u 0:01

I could open the .ai file in acrobat, but not the eps one.
Gimp looks like it's supposed to be able to open .eps files, but I get

"Could not interpret 'filename2.eps'"

And I tried :

$ convert filename2.eps filename2.xcf

but that didn't work either.

Do I need more plugins? Gimp is the windows version by the way (on my
work desktop).
