Dear Peter, thank you very much for your reply!

OK, this is the file I have mainly been working with, so I should be
on the right track here.

> The installation just involves putting this in the lib directory
Sadly (as I explained in my first mail) I can't find this directory in
my PC. I searched for any java/lib, or lib/java or lib/fop or fop/lib
directories without success.

OK, that's great, once I know which is the lib directory.

I guess, these would apply for people who compile
their stuff, but as explained, I installed directly from the Ubuntu

So it seems, the only thing I am missing here is the location of the
"lib" directory?

Just in case, I post the content of the fop script below. Maybe this helps.
