[On a related note, may be slightly OT]

It was around the same time that I was looking at doc-view mode and
looking for an easy way to convert ODT files to PDF.  Here is a pointer
to my post


Crux of my message was to put doc->pdf converter configurable by user.

When I made that post, I was having working on my own StarBasic macro -
called `BasicODConverter' - installed within LibreOffice to do the
conversion.  Since then I have discovered that `soffice' itself could be
used for pdf conversion.  Note that `soffice' has an advantage over
`unoconv' in that it is LibreOffice itself (so no extra installation)
and the converter could be run headless (no need to set up a converter
server in the background)

,----[ C-h v org-export-odt-convert-processes RET ]
| org-export-odt-convert-processes is a variable defined in `org-odt.el'.
| Its value is (("LibreOffice" "soffice --headless --convert-to %f%x --outdir 
%d %i")
|  ("unoconv" "unoconv -f %f -o %d %i"))
| Documentation:
| Specify a list of document converters and their usage.
| The converters in this list are offered as choices while
| customizing `org-export-odt-convert-process'.
| This variable is a list where each element is of the
| of the converter.  CONVERTER-CMD is the shell command for the
| converter and can contain format specifiers.  These format
| specifiers are interpreted as below:
| %i input file name in full
| %I input file name as a URL
| %f format of the output file
| %o output file name in full
| %O output file name as a URL
| %d output dir in full
| %D output dir as a URL.
| %x extra options as set in `org-export-odt-convert-capabilities'.
| You can customize this variable.
| This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in
| version 24.1 of Emacs.
