i need writer formats .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf and .txt files only. But in ubuntu 14.04 there is Libreoffice writer that comes with ODT format. So, I am not able to upload my resume in ODT format on online portal likes:- shine.com, Naukri.com, etc.


  1. Need file format .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf and .txt files only to
    upload resume

On online portal they do not accept documents in ODT format by libraoffice writer, so i am looking for word writer which comes with .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf and .txt files format.

Open the ODT file, you can then go to File > Save As (or 'Save as copy'), you can save to those formats and others:

enter image description here

You can also use 'Export to' and 'Export to PDF' to export to PDF and other formats.

For more information, you can use Help > 'libreoffice help' (or just press F1) - or use the online help (e.g. Save As, Export, Export PDF)


You can also use a command in terminal or a script to convert documents with libreoffice:

libreoffice --headless --convert-to <FORMAT> /<path>/<to>/<file>

where

  • libreoffice is the command for libreoffice (or probably libreoffice writer in this case) - this probably could be libreoffice4.2, libreoffice-writer, or soffice depending on how libreoffice was installed

  • --headless means it won't launch the libreoffice GUI.

  • --convert-to <FORMAT> - where <FORMAT> is the format you want to convert to, like pdf, docx etc
  • /<path>/<to>/<file> - file to convert - e.g. ~/Desktop/Untitled\ 1.odt or "/home/wilf/Desktop/Untitled 1.odt".

For more info on this run libreoffice --help or man libreoffice.

You can save documents in LibreOffice in any of listed formats.

Just go to File->Save As...

Also there is a button in toolbar "Save to pdf".

If you already saved a file to odt, you can open it and save in any of the formats you wish.
