    Default file.html to file.pdf or file.ps

    Is there a software to convert file.html to file.pdf or file.ps

    Alternately what is the way to read file.html without
    pasting the file-name in the mozilla-firefox firefox?

    Thanks for the help.

    Code:
    lynx -dump file.html | less

    OpenOffice.org Writer will convert html to pdf using the export function..

    there is probably a command line form, but i don't know it (did you
    search via google? [yep i just looked, just use Yast to install
    imagemagic then use convert, see 46,000 hits at:

    you didn't say if you are running KDE3, KDE4, Gnome, XFCE, or
    what...so it is kinda hard to know what to say, exactly...but, i guess
    you are looking at the file in konqueror, dolphin, or it is laying on
    the desktop, or what? well, depending on where it is and what you are
    running:

    - try a single left click on the file, or
    - try a single right click on the file and from the popup select
    (something like)
    -- open in new window
    -- open in new tab
    -- open with Opera
    -- open with Firefox
    -- open with Konqueror
    -- open with Scribes Text Editor
    -- open with Bluefish
    -- preview in KHTML
    -- preview in Embedded Advanced Text Editor
    - try double left clicking

    Thanks. Clicking on the file in user's home and then
    exporting seems to be the simplest.
