This simple tutorial shows how to easily convert DjVu to PDF file in Ubuntu system.

DjVu is a computer file format designed primarily to store scanned documents, especially those containing a combination of text, line drawings, and photographs.It uses technologies such as image layer separation of text and background/images, progressive loading, arithmetic coding, and lossy compression for bitonal (monochrome) images. This allows for high-quality, readable images to be stored in a minimum of space, so that they can be made available on the web. (from Wikipedia).

  • 1. install DjView4 from Ubuntu Software Center.

  • 2. Launch DjView4 from the dash and open .djvu file you want to convert. Navigate to File -> Export as…, under destination format PDF document.
