Re: Bindery Beta release

Sorry, it seems like I uploaded a broken binary for Windows. Here's a (hopefully) working one: https://github.com/downloads/Blender3D/Bindery/bindery24.zip EDIT It seems like the binaries I make only work on my computer. I'm still trying to figure out what the problem is, but for now, these Windows ...

Re: pdfbeads HELP!

That must be a huge book if you're getting 200mb PDFs. The largest I ever got was 60mb, and that was about 600 pages of text and 50 full-page pictures. I'm not sure how pdfbeads works with this, but from my experience, I had to manually resize all the images to shrink the book's size (it's just a si...

Re: Bindery Beta release

A small update: I've implemented PDF binding with jbig2 and pdf.py.

The only problems with PDF binding is that it does not encode color images (everything is bitonal), and OCR doesn't work. DjVu works fine with both, though.

All the changes are available in the Git repo for Linux users.

Re: Does PDF X-change Viewer allow to create searchable PDF'

There are almost always free alternatives to any program. I'm working on adding searchable text support for PDF into my PDF and DjVu binding program, Bindery. It can run on Linux easily (as that is my main development platform), but I didn't have time to hack together OCR support for Windows, though...

Bindery Beta release

I think it's time to bring Bindery out of the dark and make it a public beta. To make DIY book binding a simpler process, I think it would be nice to give non-CLI people a chance to go and try it. I created Bindery a year ago for just that reason, but I haven't had time to work on it for a very long...

Re: All threads that mention LiveCD/Linux development

A bit of a gravedig, but I have some experience with making custom Linux distributions. I actually have a custom Linux distribution build setup on GitHub, in case anyone's interested: https://github.com/Blender3D/Induction-Linux I based my distro off of Arch Linux. Arch is a joy to work with if you ...
