Re: pdf creator
Besides the aforementioned ps2pdf and other tools, if you are coming from a
windows environment, you can also use OpenOffice.org or StarOffice to do the
same. OpenOffice.org is a free download (and is available on cds cheaply
from many places, check the site, and your country, school, or favorite linux
magazine/book may also have it available on cd), check the site for the
features. StarOffice isn't free, but offers additional features built in.
It's a Sun product. The additional features (or most of them) can also be
added to OpenOffice.org if you are resourceful, and if I'm not mistaken.
Even if you go the OpenOffice/StarOffice route, you'll soon learn to use
ps2pdf at the command line. I'd suggest getting used to it, as it's available
built in, and works without starting up OpenOffice.org (you may forget what
you wanted to do by the time it finishes starting up).

Is it possible to create new, clean .pdf files under linux? If it is,
then which program do I need to use?
OpenOffice 1.1 do can create pdf, but it needs much improvement.
For one can't set the image quality there and the default quality is so
low that one can hardly be satisfied with it.
