Problem with conversion from RTF to PDF

Hi,

I am testing Calibre 0.6.13 to convert RTF file to PDF file. I have tried command line interface as well as the GUI application, but I still can't make calibre to inlcude images in the PDF file.

Commands & log:
c:\Program Files\calibre\ebook-convert.exe e:\input.rtf e:\output.pdf
1% Converting input to HTML...
InputFormatPlugin: RTF Input running on e:\input.rtf
Converting RTF to XML...
Extracting images...
Parsing XML...
Converting XML to HTML
Parsing all content...
Referenced file '0001.jpg' not in manifest
Referenced file 'styles.css' not in manifest
Generating default TOC from spine...
34% Running transforms on ebook...
Merging user specified metadata...
Detecting structure...
Auto generated TOC with 0 entries
Flattening CSS and remapping font sizes...
Source base font size is 12.00000pt
Cleaning up manifest
Creatng PDF Output
67% Creating PDF Output
PDF output written to e:\output.pdf
Output saved to e:\output.pdf

Created PDF is correct, but it does not include files, only blank squares.

When I tried to debug the process, all directories in debuf contained the JPG file as well as the CSS, so I am not sure why it was not included in the PDF.

I will be happy to provide sample RTF and PDF as well as zipped debug info.

Can you please advice me on this? Thank you very much.

Kind regards

Julius

calibre's PDF output doesn't currently support images on windows.

And Linux?

Thank you very much for your reply.

I'd like to ask if this is correctly supported on Linux? My application is a web application that wil run on Linux, I am testing on my local Windows machine, but if it will work correctly on Linux server, it will satisfy my needs.
