I think you meant to post this to the list Cris, not just me, yes?  I
have forwarded it on for you.

BTW,  if you don't mund be saying so, this sounds a very complex way
round the issue,  i.e. to have
OpenOffice in there just to convert to pdf?   When you get chance,
maybe you should investigate
something like this,




PS  BTW I don't 'yum'  ..  source code man, not a distro man ;o)  )

I just managed to setup everything on a centos5 to convert any
document to pdf in a simple command line.

In case anyone is interested I post below the way:

I created a repo file in etc/yum.repo for OpenOffice 2.4 headless -
this is important

name=Scientific $basearch

yum install openoffice.org-core01
yum install openoffice.org-headless

there is a bunch to install I am not linux guru to know how to do all
at once, so I just run each openoffice related rpm you see here

#install Java Runtime Engine
wget http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=26213
chmod a+x jre-6u<version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin

#Install cups - printer manager
yum install cups

#install pdf printer
yum install cups-pdf

#set it to be used by cups as printer
lpadmin -p Cups-PDF -v cups-pdf:/ -m PostscriptColor.ppd -E

#use command below
/opt/openoffice.org2.4/program/soffice -norestore -nofirststartwizard
-nologo -headless -pt Cups-PDF [your_file]

Files suppose to be saved wherever you tell cups-pdf through config
