The great dia program for linux cannot export to linux. Also, if you have not setup lpr properly to work with cups, you cannot print from dia.
Dammit. So now I have to export to a png file (which is at the wrong dpi, so the picture is very small). The drawing I did to scale when printed out is nowhere near the correct size.
Use a program that can export to PDF. EPS is fine, but people expect PDF.
If you have installed the CUPS-PDF printer, it should be available from Dia's menu "File" > "Print." That should give you a usable PDF file. A sample 4.3 Kb Dia file output to a 34 Kb pdf on my system.
CUPS-PDF is usually the quickest and easiest way to generate a pdf from any Linux program that can access your printers.
