Re: All threads that mention LiveCD/Linux development

I haven't had much time to work on the LiveCD. The build process changed once again, so I have to redesign the entire ISO from scratch.

Re: All threads that mention LiveCD/Linux development

There was little interest in the project so I stopped maintaining it. I still run Arch Linux and the ArchISO scripts haven't changed a whole lot in six months, so I can try to rebuild the image some time this week. As for hosting, I haven't found anything. I use GitHub for storing the code, but I do...

Re: Bindery

Well, it seems like I've stopped book scanning for the foreseeable future and probably won't be getting back to it seriously any time soon. Bindery was essentially an open-sourced personal project that I made for myself and others, but enabling it to work with Windows was just too much of a hassle w...

Re: Bindery

I've ironed out tons of bugs from the code: Fixed the Scan Tailor-like Add Files dialog Added tempfile replacements to many hard-coded temporary files in the DjVu binding module Added local PATH injection for Windows that actually works. It only affects the Bindery process and all subprocesses and d...

Re: DPI calculation to compensate for incorrect zoom setting

I just used this:

Code: Select all

mogrify -resize widthxheight! *.JPG
It overwrites your existing images so make sure to work on a copy. The exclamation point at the end forces ImageMagick to scale to that exact size, ignoring aspect ratio.

Re: DPI calculation to compensate for incorrect zoom setting

Whenever I had page sizing issues, I usually just found the most convenient size and scaled all of the pages down to it. Zooming shouldn't affect the aspect ratio (for you it did, oddly) so scaling down shouldn't be much of a problem, but the horizontal/vertical compression might be noticeable.

Re: Small high quality PDF files

Unless you lose some information, there is no way to compress an image to that size without sacrificing quality. If there was a way nobody would be using JPEG anymore. If you use pdfbeads, add -r 200 to lower the DPI of the images. There really isn't anything else you can do aside from decreasing th...

Re: Bindery

I'll have a bit more time to work on Bindery during the next few weeks so I'm trying to fix all existing problems before introducing any new features. I've fixed as many UI bugs as I could find and converted most of the Djvubind code so that it creates temporary files in the appropriate system folde...

Re: Bindery

Thanks once again. I've never had problems with encoding either PDF or DjVu files, so it's probably a Windows-related problem.

I'll look into why this is happening and update Bindery accordingly.
