I finally had time to fix the bugs you described.

Hopefully this build will work better for you. It has a debug log now, so if something breaks, just copy the contents of the Terminal window and attach the debug log.

Here's a download link: Bindery 2.6 Zipfile

I tried to install the Bindery beta in Linux but when I ran the make command in the terminal I got this...

Code: Select all

:~/bindery$ make 
pyuic4 -i 2 -o ui/gui.py ui/gui.ui 
make: pyuic4: Command not found 
make: *** [all] Error 127 
Did I do something wrong?

You need PyQt4 and a slew of other dependencies. I built a package for Arch Linux and the following packages were required:

Code: Select all

depends=('python2' 'qt' 'python2-qt' 'python2-sip' 'python-imaging' 'djvulibre' 'minidjvu' 'tesseract')
These package names are different for other distros, though, so Google for the package name for your specific distro. The build process is guess-and-check for Linux, sadly, but I'm working on making a somewhat-universal dependency installer for a few of the major distros.

If you tell me what distro you use, I might be able to make a package list for other people to use (or just add the package installation into the Makefile).

Sure, I use Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). I am pretty new to Linux so it is not surprising at all that I am having difficulty building this beta.

Okay, I've found most of the packages:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install pyqt4-dev-tools djvulibre minidjvu
This won't include jbig2, as Ubuntu doesn't have a package for it (so you won't be able to bind PDF). I might make an Ubuntu package for it later.

If you want OCR, get Tesseract:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install tesseract-ocr
