With Microsoft Word on Windows, I can select a bunch of documents, right-click, and select "print". There doesn't seem to be any such option for running on Ubuntu 9.10. I have a folder of about 40 documents that I want to print--is there any easy way to do this?

Based on this question, you could do this with a bash script:


for file in $(ls ~/yourdocs/); do
    ooffice -pt pdfprinter $file
