I have a set of files in .doc format, that need to be converted to .pdf format. I am using CentOS 5.6.

I have referred this link in which same thing is done for Ubutu but i am using CnetOS and i tried to install cups-pdf package using yum install cups-pdf but I could not get it to install.

In Addition to this i also tried alternative2 of the above link.

Any of the solutions mentioned in the post you linked to should work. The easiest will be using open office (or libreoffice) or AbiWord. – terdon Aug 14 '12 at 12:59

I'm pretty sure current versions of can read .docs and can write PDF files without assistance from CUPS.

I'd just install OOO and use it's "export as PDF" feature. I'd leave CUPS alone.
