see askubuntu.com/questions/60778/how-to-convert-an-odt-to-pdf - any file that loads in Libre Office can also be exported to PDF – Takkat Apr 7 '13 at 9:23
    
both Open Office and Libre Office can convert your word and presentation file to pdf, just goto file menu and select export option. – dakshbhatt21 Apr 7 '13 at 9:36
    
But OP seems to do this without having to open each Word or PPT file in LibreOffice and then converting that file to PDF. – user25656 Apr 14 '13 at 16:56

@vasa1 There are several scripts in the master question. – Seth Apr 15 '13 at 15:46

To mass convert .doc and .ppt to .pdf, you can use unoconv.

To install:

sudo apt-get install unoconv

To convert the files you can use the following commands:

unoconv -f pdf filename.doc
unoconv -f pdf filename.ppt
unoconv -f pdf *.doc
unoconv -f pdf *.ppt
