If you're using LibreOffice, you can click File > Export as PDF

Just to add: You can even use LibreOffice in batch mode from the command-line, if you have a lot of files. See the output of libreoffice --help. AbiWord can also do that. If you want real quality, there are PanDoc, LaTeX and/or ConTeXt, but they’re a bit of a faff for trivial stuff!

You could also install cups-pdf, and print to PDF form any program you like.

For those who wish to convert from the "command prompt": use convert (part of the rpm package ImageMagick). You can choose your own font or font family (see $> man convert).

If you open a file using a corresponding program (e.g.,text editors, graphic programs, web browsers, LibreOffice, etc) in linux, you can create a pdf format via print by selecting "print to file". As your file is a plain text file, you may use "gedit" to convert it to a pdf format via print.
