comment How to set oxygen-gtk font preferences
There is kdeglobals file in gtk-3 theme folder - under [WM] section there is setting activeForeground. That setting affects font color. Stephen if you edit your answer and include this finding, I'll mark it as correct.

I'm not sure about that, as oxygen-gtk is not classical theme but depends on special library, thou maybe you are right, maybe it can be issue with other themes, but I don't know

comment How to set oxygen-gtk font preferences
I opened it already - there is no setting for font color. I even copied Ambiance gtk.css contents in oxygen (altogether with include files) as there were font settings, but without success, so I revert it to original.

I imagine you talk about Wiki integration. I had this issue with older version. Then I needed to build it from source, as some changes were necessary, due to changes at other party. This was some months ago, thou

Gimp 2.7.3 is as far as you can go with 11.04

It's not possible, because you'll need at least glib >= 2.30 which will brake your distribution, more: askubuntu.com/questions/105247/…

comment How do I set the default icon for mplayer?
There is typo in 4th command line (Mplayer.svg) and also *x* pattern is not good as it catches also "index.theme" file, which breaks conversion, so above should be fixed

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
Maybe best for you would be to extract all DjVu pages to TIFF, then try gscan2pdf. If it works (I don't have it right here to check), it will be slow process

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
Yes, you can use imagemagick to autocrop image(s) from DjVu image, only if it's in color, but what will you do with it? "Serious code" kind of work is done in OCR GUIs - "Finereader", "Readiris"... ($ Windows) or even "gscan2pdf" (> 1.0) I think offers this feature. Even then it's not fully automatic, as user needs to confirm that image detection is correct. I'm not aware of easy solution that would suit you. It's very specific, as for some reason I can only guess, you are left with DjVu files, which you want to convert in specific PDF format, so that Calibre can convert "properly".

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
It's not possible. I think I briefly explained what is DjVu - it's just image, and it's totally different then PDF. You'll have to consider image DPI, geometry and position, and even if you deduce it, you'll have to use some serious code to make PDF out of it. As I told you, you don't need to move whole mountain to Calibre.

No, he couldn't make proper PDF out of it. It's just suggestion for different approach - make EPUB XHTML out from hOCR, and if images are in color then he could autocrop. All that will depend on XSLT used, in case he goes in that route.

Also if I get you right, you don't have to move whole mountain to Calibre automation. EPUB files are just zipped XHTML files with additional XML index templates. I would expect that you can get better result if you invest time and make XSLT for hOCR page to XHTML. If your source DjVu documents consist of color images then you can use ddjvu to extract just background layer and autocrop images with imagemagick

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
There is no such definition in DjVu file structure. Above example image in original DjVu document is "placed" on foreground layer/mask together with characters image and there is separate text layer which was extracted as explained. If DjVu document has color image(s) they will be placed on background layer across whole page (in common compound DjVu file). While it's understandable that you may expect that images in DjVu document page are separate objects they are not - look at DjVU document page as single image with optional text layer, that's basically what is it.

What do you mean by "individual picture data" when you refer to DjVu file structure?

comment Confirmation dialog when opening multiple files
I tried to set sensitivity when I first experienced the problem, w/o success. I don't think I actually press twice, it's just like Nautilus behaves like that - that's why I thought it must be some problem with my mouse, but after I changed it it's same. Brainstorm is good idea and I'll expose my issue, and link here in next couple of hours. Thanks
