I can't seem to import Esri .e00 files into QGIS, and I can't figure out why. I'm trying to import files I've downloaded from ftp://ftp.granit.sr.unh.edu/pub/GRANIT_Data/Vector_Data/Environment_and_Conservation/d-landcover/d-1995/. Based on the answer to this question: Adding .e00 data into QGIS, I tried importing lan23205.e00 as a vector file, and get an error message stating that it is "not a valid or recognized data source"
What is going on here?
Note: I'm running Ubuntu Linux.
