Ok, thank you I will do so next week!
It's redicolous, all I wanted to do was exporting a dokuwiki to pdf. If I had known that this will be so complicated I would have given this task to someone else

Thanks & Regards

Hi there,

I fixed the problem and I wanted to inform you about it
The problem was, that after validating the epub with sigil, sigil url-encoded the links to the image files! So the links get changed from something like "../Images/privat@images.jpeg" to "../Images/privat%40images.jpeg" which can not be found by prince later...

Thanks for your help, my task is completed

Prince does not show up in Cygwin's package manager... haven't taken the time to try installing it manually, yet.

Actually, I've never tried installing anything into Cygwin without using its manager, so I don't even know if the generic linux gz files will work.

Hi folks,

I'm getting an error message when running the script. It generates a zero KB PDF file. It happened with every ePUB file I tried. I changed file permissions, but it didn't work. I'm on a Mac.

Does anyone have any clue about it? Any help is appreciated. Here's the error message:

Code:
sh epub2pdf.sh test.epub test.pdf
readlink: illegal option -- f
usage: readlink [-n] [file ...]
readlink: illegal option -- f
usage: readlink [-n] [file ...]
readlink: illegal option -- f
usage: readlink [-n] [file ...]
Cannot read file test.epub

Well, evidently your readlink version does not support the -f option.

Anyway, this script has not been updated or even looked at for a very long time. Maybe you could try the GUI version, if you can get python and pyQT for your system.

Now all we need is an ePub to LaTeX converter, or an Xhtml to LaTeX converter, both of which need to respect and pass through styles rather than trying to render them, and I can write all my books in Xhtml and render them to ePub, PDF or Print.

How do you even load an epub to convert in the GUI version? I can't for the life of me work out how it works.

Do you mean this version? I'll answer there (where you should have asked).
