Just be be 100% clear:

If you convert a PDF file to PS through pdftops, then send the PS file though PeasyPDF's Print function, it works with your fax machine?

answer: Yes, it woks.

I'm confused, because your example above appears to be sending the fax as a PDF without converting to PS.

answer: It works also from peasypdf without converting to PS. According to efaxs README, the current ghostscripts version would allow sending the fax as a PDF without converting to PS, for single and multipage pdf document as well Smile .
So no more need then to perform a PS conversion step before sending the fax
»»--> so you might disregard my request for adding code lines for a specific FaxPrinter printer.
Sorry if discovering this now in real time ... Embarassed i'd only remembered that, in some circumstances, i'd got an error message trying to fax pdf files.

OK. I'm going to implement this feature anyway as an option. I recall seeing another situation where the printer driver really wanted to see PS instead of PDF.

Stand by for v3.0!

PeasyPDF v3.0 is posted above. Its Print function now supports older printer drivers that need Postscript source data instead of PDF.

PostPosted: Fri 26 Sep 2014, 04:17    Post subject: .PDF .pdf capital vs low case characters  

Hi rcrsn51,
... just to mention that:
the conversion to pdf of graphic files creates a CONVERTED.PDF in /tmp/PDFCONVERT folder, using the extension .PDF with capital police.

I've experimented that a .PDF (capital character) to-a-mail-attached-document is unreadable for the recipient under Linux - ... don't know for WIndows users - (i'm using the across Europe well know "scarlet" webmail provider). Modifying the extension to .pdf (lowcase character) solves the «problem».

Did someone already experience this ?

Thanks for any answer.

Cheers, Charlie

Interesting. I chose the upper-case name CONVERTED.PDF so it would be easy to identify and I assumed that users would rename it to something else.

I don't know why an e-mail service would reject the name. Maybe they have a list of legal file types that they will allow as attachments, but only lower-case file extensions are on the list.

Your JPEG resizing app works so well ...

Is it possible to make PeasyPDF bulk-convert a folder of .doc text documents with pictures into PDF files?

I know that LibreOffice can do that but I believe it would be one at a time.

I could use http://ebook.online-convert.com/convert-to-pdf but that's also one at a time.

If the conversion has to be done inside AbiWord or LibreOffice could a script pointed at the parent folder containing all of the sub-folders walk through them all & make the conversions unattended?

I have 51 folders containing .doc files with images - I'd like a PDF version of each - preferably written to the same folder.

Our son has manually converted 12 files in one folder to EPUB via http://ebook.online-convert.com/convert-to-epub but I'm guessing his patience would expire quickly if I asked him to convert the 718 additional files one at a time.

WDYT?

No. PeasyPDF can bulk-convert individual pictures into PDF, but it has no ability to work with .doc files.

[Edit] This is possible using LibreOffice and a bit of script:
Code:
for F in *.doc; do libreoffice --convert-to pdf  $F; done

rcrsn51,

Just a public note here to say, "Thank You", for PeasyPDF. I am using it in Precise 5.7.1 full install with excellent results. Until discovering this thread I was not aware that a new version of PeasyPDF and ghostscript were available for us. They are now installed and working admirably.

Folks like you who selflessly contribute to Puppy is why folks like me use it as our only operating system. You are appreciated!
