G.2. Advanced File Types

SavaPage printer supports additional file types using the PDF converter of LibreOffice as summarized in Table G.2, “Advanced Printable File Types”. Check if LibreOffice is installed by entering the command:

libreoffice --version

LibreOffice can easily be installed with the standard installer of the GNU/Linux host. On Debian based systems you can use the command line to install the packages needed. For example:

# The core package
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-core unoconv

# ... or on Debian jessie, to get the latest LibreOffice version
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-core unoconv -t jessie-backports

# To convert text, spreadsheet and presentation documents
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-writer libreoffice-calc libreoffice-impress

# Install fonts so conversion of non-embedded font sources does not fallback to DejaVu
sudo apt-get install fonts-cantarell fonts-croscore fonts-crosextra-caladea
sudo apt-get install fonts-crosextra-carlito fonts-dejavu fonts-droid 
sudo apt-get install fonts-liberation fonts-noto fonts-opensymbol gsfonts

# Install even more fonts like the Ubuntu Font Family
sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-font-family

# ... and Microsoft True Type Core Fonts
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
