can't print to pdf from oo writer
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:03 EDT
The pdf file printed from oo writer can't be opened by xpdf or acroread (
doesn't start with PDF ).
How have you printed to PDF? Have you run OpenOffice.org Printer Admin and
chose a PDF converter there?
In the next rpm I'll add PDF converter as a printer option by default, so that
one doesn't have to go to oopadmin for that, but no matter what, you have
to select the PDF converter as your printer to print to PDF.
First I printed from OO writer without going to Printer Admin ( the separate
menu item in Office menu ). I chosed PDF, selected name of the file and so on.
It didn't warn me about Printer Admin.
After that I went to the Printer Admin and defined the default as PDF. About PDF
converter, you mean the /usr/bin/gs with lots of paramenters line? It was there,
I didn't changed it, just checked that /usr/bin/gs is installed. After this I
tried again in OO writer, still didn't worked.
Maybe I'm missing something? Let me know if it works for you or if I should get
the most recent package from rawhide and I'll try again.
PDF doesnt work for me either
I ended up printing to ps and using ps2pdf
This still doesn't work in phoebe. Resulting file is actually postscript.
I haven't tried using ooadmin first, as Jakub said "In the next rpm I'll add PDF
converter as a printer option by default, so that one doesn't have to go to
oopadmin for that". This would be much better, as beginners don't know about
Printing to PDF works if a PDF printer is setup first.
works fine with oo 1.0.2 without setting the pdf printer, tested on phoebe3
