PDF Printer

Suggestion for a PDF printer to rum in Mint
similar to CutePDF Writer I use in Windows
(not sure if Cute will or not)

Thank you,
fred

Here is a couple of demonstrated pages to set up a pdf virtual printer, like CutePDF in Linux:

Haven't tried anything Linux yet, but all this does sound interesting and like something fun to tinker with (or frustrating after reading some posts in this forum.... ) .... wish you well with the project

Thank you for the leads BT,

I find the new language very confusing, ;-) otherwise Mint is up and running

Happy to help, Fred. Challenges approached, tackled and successfully repeated soon become second nature and we soon wonder why we worried so much in the beginning.....

Any Windows program that you like should run in Wine
Have a try at that with CutePDF Writer.... http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Wine-on-Linux
