I was wondering how to convert chm to djvu? Command line, GUI or online solutions are both fine. My OS is 10.10.

Thanks and regards!

You'll probably have to convert the chm file through an intermediary file format such as PDF.

Two packages are available in synaptic manager/software center, pdf2djvu and chm2pdf

Suggested conversion syntax for an example.chm file:

chm2pdf --book example.chm
pdf2djvu -o example.djvu example.pdf

chm2pdf cannot start if the chm-filename contains parentheses (and other funny characters). Renaming the file helps. – knb Nov 24 '11 at 12:32
