How to convert MS office to PDF in Linux?

Question: I am looking for an file conversion site which converts DOCX, DOC, PPT XLS...to PDF or JPG files using an API (C/C++/python library or module) in Linux. Openoffice is no lightweight enough. Is there any open source library or module? Is there any application which can do this on VeryPDF? Thank you.
