Input odt document for generated pdf

Generating PDF to LibreOffice headless mode running on an application server.
I have three distribution office:
- Libreoffice_5.0.0.3_RC
- Libreoffice_4.4.2
- Openoffice_3.2.1
Running through LibreOffice (or OpenOffice) API Java code, which will send the document processing odt, getting back to pdf.

With newer versions of the LO (or OO) comes these Defects:
- Lower resolution images
- Bigger size pdf file

File for generating the Annex as inputDocument.odt.

There are three pdf named according to package LO (or OO) version.

Included are three pictures that show deteriorating quality of conversion, again named after release.

Files Input_odt_document_for_generated_pdf.odt and generated.pdf are unnecessary.

Thanks for filing Tomas,

I have no change to confirm, however:

See issue 58831

Heard people about that. Thought that there was an issue for that already, but cannot find it.

I think headless use the last options used in LibreOffice.

Have you tried, doing first one opening LibreOffice, setting up properly the options and try after in headless mode.

Thank you for your response.

However, I have LO installed only on the server version of Linux. 
Thus, without a graphical interface.
Is it possible to somehow set the PDF export directly in the configuration file LO?
For example, DPI, quality, etc.

Sure it is possible, but indeed perhaps not so easy, apart from locate the proper keys, know which are the possible values.

I think must be easy prepare the configuration in another computer, and copy the profile to the server.

If I'm not wrong the setting are in the registrymodifications.xcu file that is in the root of user profile, maybe only with copy this file to the server is enough.

@Tomas: I think it's fair that you try to find this info first via support. Then if it's impossible, make an enhancement request.

OK?
