OpenOffice 2.0 file-format conversion


Have downloaded and installed OOo 2.0 and am tryng to inter-convert these various file formats using OOo Writer :
- HTML (.htm, .html) webpages
- Word (.doc, .xml) and native OOo (.odt, .sxw, ... etc.) documents
- Portable Document Format (.pdf) read-only files

Anyone have hints on how to convert .pdf files to .htm/.html webpages directly using just OOo Writer?

Can use the OOo Writer's 'Export' to convert webpages and documents to PDF's, but have not figured out a direct way -- using solely OOo Writer 2.0 -- to convert the other way from .pdf to .htm/.html format. Would greatly prefer that end-users at Internet kiosks can read such webpage-format files (browsers only), without needing OOo, MS-Office, or Acrobat Reader installed.

Am currently using SourceForge's
pdftohtml 0.36 to convert this way.

Have already reviewed
LQ's OpenOfiice 2.0 installation thread
OpenOffice 2.0 User Guides
OpenOffice 2.o HOW-TO's
OpenOffice 2.0 Articles
OpenOffice mailing list archive
OO.o Development Wiki

Did find from the latter OpenOffice.org Knowledge Base, that OOo Writer cannot open and read the very .pdf files it exports and creates !

TYIA for any good leads on any native OOo pdftohtml conversion hints,
-nycace(sourceforgepdfhtmlversion# * 100)

Its not that surprising that OOo can't open PDF's. PDF's are really designed to be that much of an editable format. Granted, this doesn't help you too much with your problem.

Yep, see it that way too.
Except for using a third-party PDF-to-other-format converter such as the above, PDF's are pretty much dead-end-readables on OOo for now
Wondering if this will be added to any non-rpm OOo 2.x RC's

Question Installing Open Office 2.0

I met a small problem with installing the Open Office 2.0 in Mandriva. This Mandriva 10 is actually comes with the OOo1.3, therefore after install the Open Office 2.0, there is no effects or any changes at all. Is it have to uninstall the OOo 1.3 first, then only can install that? It's because I am really new to Linux, so I dont dare to uninstall it. Anybody can give the exact website address for download the driver for Open Office 2.0 and which file should I download to install, either tar.gz or rpm files are actually suitable for mandriva installation?

All versions of OO will run side by side. You need to find out where 'soffice' is for 00.2. (Try 'locate soffice' as root.) Mine is in /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program. Entering /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice in konsole starts OO. Use 'swriter' to open only the writer, 'scalc' for the spreadsheet, etc, etc.

Hope this helps.
