Dear all,

I Installed the latest available Ubuntu deb package pandoc-1.14.0.1-1-amd64.deb. According to the documentation it should support the conversion from docx to pdf. However, the conversion fails for me with the following error:

pandoc input.docx -o output.pdf
! Font T1/cmr/m/n/10=ecrm1000 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not fou
nd.
<to be read again> 
                   relax 
l.100 \fontencoding\encodingdefault\selectfont

Does someone have any advice for me?

Thankfully,

Robert

If it still fails after trying with --latex-engine=xelatex, could you add --verbose flag and post the output (please remove any sensitive info).

Thanks to both of you. It compiles with the parameter --latex-engine=xelatex. Two remaining questions:

  • I had to install an additional package texlive-xetex. Can xetex run independently from texlive-latex and can I thus uninstall all texlive-latex packages?
  • The command pandoc input.docx --latex-engine=xelatex -o output.pdf does not preserve the original style of the docx file. Rather it restyles it using a texlive design. Is it possible to preserve the original style?

No, it isn't.

If you want the original style in the PDF, why even convert it with the
help of Pandoc?

You can use Word to export the DOCX as PDF (with 100% of the original
style), or LibreOffice to import the DOCX and export as PDF with 90%-95% of
your style(s) preserved (if you have the same local fonts installed),
working in 85%-90% of all cases...

This is exactly the hotspot. I was looking for a way on Linux to preserve 100% of the style. I came across the tip using pandoc on unix stackexchange where it was mentioned that pandoc does a pretty good job converting docx to pdf.

Pandoc only preserves document structure, not style.
