Print to PDF using PCLinuxOS/Kubuntu any KDE distro December 3, 2007

Posted by rjdohnert in 1.

Under Windows and Mac OS X printing to PDF is not a big issue but there are very few solutions in Linux.

With KDE apps its not a very big issue but to print from Firefox and Thunderbird you have to work to get PDF printing capabilities. Until now

1. Grab cups-pdf from your respective repositories and install through Synaptic

2. Open Firefox

3. Click on File and Print. Leave the selection as Postscript and click on properties, under print command clear out the entire command and type in ‘kprinter’

4. Click ‘OK’ and return to the main dialog, click on ‘Print’ and wait a few seconds. When the kprinter dialog comes up set it to ‘Print to PDF’

5. You are done
