Convert OOXML to PDF from command line

Don’t you hate loading Open/LibreOffice.org? I do, so anything that helps to avoid the wait for the mammoth to load is good. Carlo Daffara shared a useful tip on Google+.

to convert files to PDF using libreoffice from the command line, I use this:

$ libreoffice –headless -convert-to pdf:writer_pdf_Export <filename>

works quite well, and in latest libreoffice releases quality of converted presentations from OOXML is substantially improved.

Thanks Carlo.
