[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.

Go to github to read the install procedure and to report all issues and feature requests.
You must follow the steps there after installing the plugin to actually convert books.

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

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?
