[GUI Plugin] DjVuMaker - converts Postscript books to Djvu

Hi all, I have written a plugin for converting scanned PDFs from google books and the like to DJVU. You can use the Convert menu or have them converted automatically on import.

https://github.com/kfix/calibre_plug...aker/releases/

I personally use it to keep koreader on my Kindle fed with very big old books :-)

Only tested on OSX, but linux and windows are theoretically possible if someone can write a build & install script for the conversion apps.

YOU MUST GO TO github to read the install procedure and to report all issues and feature requests. The plugin requires extra software to be installed.

I am only on this thread to upload the occasional bug-fix/API update, because this CHAT FORUM is used as a Software Update Service by Calibre

Will this plugin work when Calibre 2.0 is released and switches from Qt4 to Qt5?

I'm using it now with the Qt5 calibre beta. the plugin doesn't use PyQt directly.

I'm not getting this to work in Calibre 2.15.

It shows up on the "Convert books" menu, but when I choose it, nothing seems to happen.

I used "Preferences --> Advanced --> Plugins --> Get new plugins" and then searched for "djvu" to find and install it, then used the "Restart Calbre" button.

When I repeat that sequence, it says it's status is "Not installed", and yet, the menu item shows up on "Convert books".

Am I doing something wrong?

check out the jobs window (Gear icon in the lower right) after you try to convert a book. you should see a job listing for the conversion attempt and if you hit the details button, some diagnostic messages. If you have not installed the needed software, the messages will say so there.

GO TO https://github.com/kfix/calibre_plugin_djvumaker to see an example of a completed job.
