Description:

A KDE service-menu which uses OpenOffice's (or LibreOffice) UNO bindings to convert many document formats to pdf, html...

Dependencies:
unoconv
notify-send

Installation:
sudo install -m 755 batch-convert-documents-kde /usr/bin/
sudo install -m 755 batch-convert-documents-kde.desktop $(kde4-config --prefix)/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/

Other:
I made a GNOME version and some nautilus scripts, you can find theme in the source
If prefer command line to this stuff, you will certainly use unoconv tool
*Note: If you are running some office windows for some documents, this script will use the first window you opened as listener to convert documents. If not you won't normally start office until all conversions finished

Type 'batch-convert-documents-kde --help' for more information.

Hi, congratulations for this script!

Using clean Ubuntu 11.04 works well!

Using clean Gentoo install don't work.

Using clean Kubuntu 11.10 don't work.

The process hang on working until I kill oosplash.bin, then the process finishes and the PDF is created.

Any clue to solve that?

I'm using libreoffice 3.4.4.

Thank's!

Installed the deb on MEPIS 11 (based on Debian Stable), and it silently removed the entire LibreOffice beta suite.

If this is under your control, please add a dialog box so user can decide whether to proceed.

Sorry, I have no idea why your packages manager removed LibreOffice 3.4.3
Unoconv only requires LibreOffice >= 2.0, and my package doesn't require any version of dependences

OK Its resolved
I just removed kdebase package from the dependences list. It seems that package is named variously in various linux desktops

Wow, pretty nice idea :)

> unresolved dependencies: kdebase

Maybe you must install kdebase-dev for compiling?

Why compiling?
I took the package for ubuntu (*.deb).
