Convert A Document Into PDF By Printing It
By user12607856 on Dec 20, 2006
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.
