Print as PostScript, e.g: somefile.ps

Then run ps2pdf somefile.ps somefile.pdf to make the conversion.

Re: ps2pdf

Hi LancerNZ,

Tks for your advice.

I'm searching for a solution to add "pdf printer" to the printer dropdown list. On Konqueror I found "pdf printer" on the aforesaid list. But I could not find it on Mozilla.

Will this do?
http://www.granneman.com/webdev/brow...tinginmozilla/

1. Open Mozilla & go to a page you'd like to print. Go to File > Print.

2. In the Print dialog box, click on the Properties... button.

3. In the Printer Properties dialog box, change the Print Command from "lpr ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+'-P'}${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME}" to "kprinter --stdin" (without quotation marks).

4. Click OK to close Printer Properties dialog box, & then click Print to close the Print dialog box.

5. You'll see Mozilla 'printing', & then Kprinter should open up. Make the appropriate choices (print as PDF), & then click Print. Your page should print.

Hi LancerNZ,

Tks for your detail advice and URL.

I just typed in;
kprinter --stdin

as advised. Then clicked OK. It was done.

Clicking print started "pdf printer" Tks
