- You have a notebook that runs Windows, has Microsoft Works, a network connection, ssh (but you, like me, never spent the extra money for Microsoft Office/Word)
- You also have a Linux box that has Open Office that you can access by the same network
Do the following:
- Open your Microsoft Works file
- Open a file on a Linux box that you're connected to via ssh.
- Copy your file from the Microsoft Works window into the file on the Linux box
- Close the file on the Linux box
- Open Open Office on the Linux Box
- Open your file
- Copy from the file into the Open Office window
- Export as .pdf (call the file something that you can actually read read on Linux without having to mask spaces in file names, i.e.: NAME THAT FILE something that DOESN'T HAVE SPACES in the file name
- Transfer the pdf file back yo your PC (use an ssh file transfer window)
- You now have a .pdf file on your PC that doesn't have the capability of writing them.
I helped somebody do this earlier this week and I thought it might be beneficial for that person as well as possibly others to have this written down.
