How to print to PDF in Linux.

Learn how to convert Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or image files to PDFs online from your Linux device.

One of the easiest ways to convert your files is to use the Linux PDF printer. To convert any file to PDF, open the file and follow these steps:

  1. Press Ctrl+P to open the print dialog box.
  2. Click the General tab, and under Printer, choose Print to File.
  3. Choose your filename and save location.
  4. Select your file format. PDF is the default file type.
  5. Select any page preferences.
  6. Click Print to save the PDF.

Instead of sending the document to a physical printer, the Linux PDF printer will “print” your file as a PDF and save it to the location of your choice. Just be sure to select a location and a filename that you’ll remember.

Use an online PDF editor.

Another easy way to convert files to PDF from your Linux device is with an online PDF editor like Adobe Acrobat online services. In four easy steps, you can convert almost any file type into device-friendly PDFs:

  1. Visit Acrobat online services from any web browser.
  2. Upload the documents you want to convert.
  3. Wait for your files to convert.
  4. Download the newly created PDF to your Linux device.

An online PDF editor makes it easy to convert Microsoft 365 files — including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint — or even images in JPG, PNG, and TIFF formats into easy-to-read PDFs without software downloads or complicated navigation.
