comment How to show java plugin console
I don't have a system menu, and I'm using even another distro (not Ubuntu), but I'd like to add that there must be commands one can invoke from shell which do these things.

comment How to convert pdf file to an odt file?
From this list, pdftohtml must be the best fit for the task, because HTML can carry formatting. Then HTML could be converted to ODT or DOC.
