Fastreport Mono under Debian, how to create pdf from frx-file

My first use is Fastreport-Desktop under Windows. I create an frx-file with the designer-programm. After that I call fastreport.exe (sorry, don't know syntax exactly, because I am not in my office) with a parameter-file and frx-file. The result is a pdf-file.

I wish I could do this in my debian-linux environment. So I installed a brand new debian-machine with graphical X-environment. Download fastreport-mono and install it:

# install mono:
apt-get install gnupg dirmngr apt-transport-https ca-certificates -y
apt remove --purge --auto-remove mono-runtime
apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb stable-buster main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official-stable.list'
apt-get update
apt-get install mono-complete

# install fastreport
dpkg -i fastreport-mono-demo_all.deb

I find a lot of frx-files, for example:


How can I create a very simple pdf-file from this frx file from the command line?

Thanks for your help,

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
