comment Why does Ubuntu still require restart after kernel updates when tools out there mean it's unnecessary?
For now ksplice is free to download (but not open-source) for Ubuntu Desktop, shame it's not "free" software (only free in cost).

The question should read "on these particular old laptops fail"...

but the link above is rather involved... surely there is a nicer way?

@zetah I was hoping there might be a tool which does this - so that others had done the "serious code" :). Certainly I agree the cropping of the images is the difficult bit. (but I thought you suggested you could autocrop with 'imagemagick'? if the solution could export to HTML that'd be perfect!)

@zetah calibre can convert PDFs with the images cropped really well, but it can't handle where the entire page is just one image. This is really the key/difficult part of the problem! If you think this could be achieved that would be really interesting to me.

@zetah but can't you make proper PDFs using the smaller images (wouldn't this then reduce the size of the PDF?), the autocrop stuff sounds exactly like what I'm looking for!

whether it can crop the pictures out of the document as smaller images placed on top of the PDF (e.g. so they could export to HTML)

@Ashu is it extracting the pictures or simply copying the entire page? (does that make sense?)

Am I correct in thinking that this doesn't extract the individual picture data, but only the image of the entire page?

@Ashu Are you sure this retrieves the pictures?
