comment Why does installing 11.10 or 12.04 on old laptops fail?
The question should read "on these particular old laptops fail"...

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
@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!)

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
@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)

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
@Ashu is it extracting the pictures or simply copying the entire page? (does that make sense?)

comment Converting DJVU to PDF
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?

comment Why is Rosetta Stone the wikipedia page on Ubuntu install?
Why would you argue it is just a random page? Seems a missed opportunity is that is the case. (I have Rosetta Stone installed already and it work great!)

comment How to automatically put text into picture files
gLabels appears to put things (like business cards) into a printable format, so 12+ per A4 sheet. I need it to export one file per code. Though I could be wrong!

comment How to automatically put text into picture files
@aquaherd My image template is a PNG file so I don't think Libre Office can open/edit it very well (though I could well be wrong!).

@Javier If you could explain how to use, and do this, in ImageMagick that would be fantastic!

comment Text inside files has squares with numbers in it
It's strange if they are "glorified line breaks"... why does gedit not simply display them as such! Indeed, why the tesseractOCR outputting them instead of a line break!

@Amanda do you have any additional language packs installed? / any idea why this could be?
