Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid and Cups-Pdf – strange

Today I’m finalizing my tax declaration. The program I use transfers the data to my tax office. Afterwards I need a print out that needs to be signed.

At home I have no printer, so I need a PDF-printer. Easy:

sudo apt-get install cups-pdf 

Nope, still no PDFs. After a Google search I found out that the directory ~/PDF must be manually created. Mmmh, still no PDFs. After another Google search:


sudo apt-get remove cups-pdf 
mkdir ~/PDF
sudo apt-get install cups-pdf 

Done.
