Decode .HQX File on Linux

A very simple solution is to use UUDeview which is available in many Linux distros. You can also use macutils on Debian-based distros. Or even easier, an online tool is here.

On Fedora:
# yum install uudeview

On Debian/Ubuntu:
# apt-get install uudeview

To decode file fxppd1110bm922ien.hqx, for example, you can use the following command.

$ uudeview -i fxppd1110bm922ien.hqx

Have a good day!
