Print to DjVu through KPrinter

0 Likes
This is kprinter's pseudo-printer for creation of djvu files (files with very
high compression ratio) by printing from any application.

When choosing an existing file for saving, it is possible to append to
the file.



Script ps2djvu4kdeprint.sh should be put somewhere in the path (e.g. ~/bin).

Parameters of the script ps2djvu4kdeprint.sh:

  -r<resolution> -c<1 or 0> <ps file name>

  1 means 'print in color', 0 means 'black&white printing'

It can be used as a stand-alone tool for conversion of ps files to djvu.



Used packages: kdialog, netpbm and djvulibre

For Kdeprint setting one can add to

~/.kde/share/apps/kdeprint/specials.desktop

a new printer section with parameters:

  Command=ps2djvu

  Comment=Local file

  Description=Print to Djvu file

  File=0

  Icon=fileprint

  Name=Print to file (Djvu)



and put the files ps2djvu.desktop and ps2djvu.xml to the directory
~/.kde/share/apps/kdeprint/filters



Then it should be possible to choose the pseudo-printer 'Print to Djvu file'
and change its options (resolution, color) in kdeprint dialog.
