Re: Print to PDF on Linux..? how..?

I'm not familiar with cutePDF but there are a number of apps for creating pdf files in Linux. If you're using KDE you should have their version - kpdf to view files at least. And Adobe has a free version for Linux.

OpenOffice. I think there is a Java based PDF reader which may print (not sure).

Yeah, Openoffice can export to PDF but i want to create PDF files from any application or website that can print. I don't have a printer now but i want to save my receipts from online banking and from my credit card.
