Is there a "howto" for Windows installation?
What do I have to have to run it on Windows?
I know it's CL-only for Windows, but do you have a nice UI in Linux, or is it still CL?
djvubind is only a command line program an any platform. Blender was making a gui frontend for it and other programs called bindery
, but it's been a while since I checked in on his progress. It made its way to Windows thanks to a patch someone sent me, but I haven't personally used Windows for 5+ years - between that and being command line, I'm not willing to put energy into making it more Windows-user friendly (although anyone else is welcome to, being opensource and all).
Anyway, just unzip djvubind to the directory of your choosing. You also need python3, imagemagick, tesseract, and djvulibre installed. Open a command line, cd to the directory that contains your images, and use djvubind with whatever options you may need. It will probably look similar to this:
Code: Select all
"C:\Python31\python.exe" "C:\Program Files\djvubind\bin\djvubind" --help
"C:\Python31\python.exe" "C:\Program Files\djvubind\bin\djvubind"
Would people be interested in a gui? It could be a nice summer project for me, but it will add a lot of complexity to the project. I've only seen ~40 downloads of the latest version (~250 of the previous stable that was out for a long time), so I'm not sure how many people even use djvubind, since I'm sure people have downloaded and then deleted. Personally I'm comfortable with the command line, but I'll look into making a gui if people let me know that they want one.
