How do I create an EPS file on Linux?
OpenOffice.org 2.0 has a direct export to EPS option. From the main menu,
select File, then select Export. There are a variety of export formats. Choose EPS.
- Open the document you want to use to create the EPS file. This can
be an Excel chart, a web page, or anything else.
- Go to another desktop and start the GIMP.
- Select Acquire from the file menu. This will bring up several options.
- Select capture window without decorations and set the delay to 4 seconds. Click OK.
- Go back to the first desktop, and when the cursor changes to a crosshairs, click on the
window containing your document.
- After a few seconds, a GIMP window will appear with the image. Select only the part of the image
you need, then right click on it and select Copy from the Edit menu.
- Right click again, and this time choose Paste as New from the Edit menu.
- Another image window will appear. Close the first image window and say OK when it asks for confirmation.
- Right click on the new image and select Flatten from the Layers menu.
- Right click on the new image and select Save As from the File menu.
- Set the file format to Postscript and type in a filename that ends with .eps, then click Save.
- Check Encapsulated Postscript and click OK. You're done.
