PDF incompatibility Linux Mac OS X


I don't know where to submit my question...Sorry if this is the wrong forum...

But I've created a PDF file using Star Office 6.0 on Red Hat Linux and when I move the file over to Mac OS X I am unable to view it using Preview. If anyone can give me any thoughts or direction as to how I can understand if not resolve this I'd appreciate it. I thought all PDF files were alike. Thanks.

Hi.

Are there any options available when you save the PDF?

Were there 'Optimise for print / screen' options, was there an option to embed fonts, that sort of thing.

OpenOffice gives options for compression, but I've never used Star Office.

No I don't recall seeing any options such as you mentioned. I did find a way to resolve the incompatibility issue but it does take an extra step. I saved my document from Star Office as a PostScript file and then used the utility on Red Hat "ps2pdf" to convert the PostScript file to PDF file. That PDF file could be viewed in Preview on Mac OS X with no trouble. Thanks for your help though. I appreciate it.

I just noticed you are from Glasgow Scotland. I've visited there. I liked it.
Of course Scotland is beautiful...
