Convert A Document Into PDF By Printing It

I thought I'd try to knock off one of the entries in the I Want A Freeware Utility To ..." post I put out yesterday.

Namely "C.4. Convert a document into PDF".

I've been reading the Ubuntu Hacks book recently, and hack #26 (Make Your Own PDFs) seemed to be exactly what I wanted. For those without the book, this was discussed in one of the Ubuntu forums and a slightly modified version of the instructions can be found here.

Note that it seems that some applications (gedit for example), already have a nice "Create a PDF Document" option available in their Print dialog. Presumably this is standard GNOME. Cups-pdf is for those that don't (such as Firefox).

One down. About 143 to go. I'll update the webpage in the new year.
