Web page to PDF


G'Day all !!

Is there a program which will enable me to capture web pages in PDF format ???
I had one with windows, through the print tab, but it will not run in Linux.
I have the ability to reformat txt to PDF through the print tab of Ubutu but it is not present when browsing.
The other thing is to use one of my own pictures, in .btm format, to customise desktop icons, I can use Gimp to edit but I can't find how to apply the picture to the icon.
All help would be much appreciated
Blessings Miykle

You can try to install cups-pdf. It adds the ability to print in PDF format to any application that can print. Usually this ability is already setup in recent linux distros, but Firefox seems not to be affected. If using Firefox as web browser, you can solve by installing cups-pdf.

Thank you for your reply, when I looked into it I found Cups-PDF is already installed and with a bit of fiddling I got it to work off Firefox,
You've done very well, my thanks again.
I'm realy starting to enjoy this OS, thanks to all the help from this and other sites.
Many blessings Miykle
