At least in mandrake 9.1 (maybe it will work for others):

print --> to file --> *.ps file

go to console

command is: 'ps2pdf <filename>.ps <saveasnewfilename>.pdf

it means in your text editor click the print option usually in the program's file menu and choose the option in printer name called Print to file (Postscript). most kde text editor/office suite programs have an option of Print to file (PDF).
