Hello Willus,

Whenever possible, please check the following problem.

I attach source and output file, with output file shown white pages, and software preview shown OK.

It is something with font color, but I cannot find the parameter to change.

Thank you.

Regards,
Angelos

I've verified that this is a bug in k2pdfopt's native PDF output in v2.03. It is due to the way your source PDF file is constructed. I have fixed the bug for the next release, but for now you'll have to turn off native PDF output, e.g.

k2pdfopt -mode fw -ls- -n- patagonia.pdf

Hello:
I have a Kindle 3 with KPV which is great. I wonder if it is possible to update the library libk2pdfopt.so.1 to a newer version...
Thank you.

I just noticed Librerator (and KOReader) have a very nice and functional 2-column viewer for pdfs. Amazing!

My bad. I had the silly idea that I could use unmodified recent versions of k2pdf provided they were made for arm. I guess the guys from KPV make their own integration of the library.

Regards.

Web site restored

Good news. At last, I finally got access to fix the capcha issue on my web site, so things are finally restored to what they were before October 5. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Maybe they at least learned their lesson and did not rely on a raid mirror or something for their "backups" :-)

I'm not convinced that hosters ever learn any lesson, but users do! Until further notice, I am setting up willus.org (bluehost.com) as a mirror to willus.com (cwihosting.com), with a complete copy of the files. I still have to work out some kinks (k2pdfopt download page doesn't work yet), but I'll get there.

Hello Willus,

I have a problem with the conversion of a pdf file to kindle dimensions.

I attach source and output files.

Please check all pages except 1st one; there is a gap at the bottom of page, which I cannot fix.

My options for k2pfdopt are:
-gui+ -wrap- -n -ocr- -col 1

I tried different values for -ws and -gtw and I could not find any other parameter to change.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

Friendly regards,
Angelos

Did you try -mode fitwidth -ls- ? I cannot try it at the moment. That's typically the best mode for conversions like this.

I have just tried that, same result, for every other page...

Whenever possible, take a look at it.

Thank you.

Update

I have just tried the following combination with much better results (every few pages I get a couple of blank lines at the bottom of the page)

-mode fw -gui+ -ls- -vls 1.2

Thanks for your time!

Is it normal that a converted file is 40mb? from 1.51, no images.

The converted file size depends on several factors:

1. The source file size and content.

2. The conversion type used (native or bitmap)--since you are using 1.51, must be bitmap.

3. The resolution chosen for the output file.

It is certainly within the realm of normal that a converted file could be 40 MB. I would expect that it would be many pages, though--more than 100? Like I said, it depends on many things.
