Is there any way to do this into Writer?

Install Ghostscript and run "gv" (ghostview).

I have gs installed, but it did not include gv by default.  A quick
separate installation worked fine.  Thanks.

As a viewer gv's not too bad (or too good, really), but the print
option presents an lpr command, which I don't know how to express as a
command to print to a pdf.

The problem with the print option in the document viewer (evince) is
that it doesn't work to print to a file.  It complains that "Printing
is not supported on this printer."

I haven't looked at all the other suggested options yet, but thanks to
all who've posted so far.

Doesn't Ghostscript printer drivers/system have the ability to to emulate a "physical" printer like CUPS-PDF does on Linux and doPDF does on Windows. That is not printing to a file, but printing to a "software printing device".

I use CUPS-PDFand doPDF as my default printer on Linux and Windows systems.

SO, I do not remember, what are you trying to do again?
Print from LO to a printer that requires Postscript or PDF output formatting? Or is it something else.

I use the Postscript driver options on all the printers that have that option available. The rest I have to tweak to see which driverand settings are the best. Tried 5 different version for a laser printer - each gave differentprint driver menu options at print time - and 4 different ones for an older Epson Artisan 810 inkjet printer. I kept 2 of the 4 for its non-overlapping options.
