Try it in WINE.

edit: I tried and it doesn't seem to work (installs fine just after starting it doesn't react to anything). Looks like a strange application though.

Weird. Mine is working fine.

However, converting PDFs it is a lottery - regular text is fine but if you have book with pictures and equations - it can fail.
