    I suspected Djview4 would keep text as text when generating a PDF file. This would have been a strong argument in favour of Djview4 vs cups-pdf. Apparently, Djview4 exports everything as images, which means that it generates huge PDF files, even when the original Djvu files are small.

    However, evince does not render some Djvu files properly. To use your method (printing the file as PDF), you may need to use a Djvu viewer other than evince. But yes, in principle, your method would work just fine, and it has the advantage of not requiring the installation of new software.

    It remains to be seen if there's an alternative solution in which the text in a Djvu file is exported as text in a PDF file.

    None of the methods here keep the underlying text in an OCR'd djvu when converting to a pdf. Anyone know how to do that?

    I agree a simple utility hopefully with a GUI is really needed for this conversion

    1) open file.djvu with evince
    2) use ctrl+p to go in the print option and choose "print to file". This convert your file in .ps
    3) open okular and use "import to pdf" in the file menu to import your .ps file.
    4) use "save as" to save your document in pdf

    Works in most cases, but I had a djvu document with some portrait and some landscape pages. This method resulted either in all pages portrait or all pages landscape...

    I succeeded in creating the TIFF file, but then the subsequent PDF file was okay viewed in Evince, but Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader displayed it all RED!

    The only option was to leave out the "-j" JPEG encryption. However, the resulting PDF was more than 10 times as big...

    Step - 1 : Goto Synaptic Package Manager (System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager)
    Step - 2 : Install DJview4
    Step - 3 : Run DJview (Applications - Graphics - DJView4)
    Step - 4 : Open your .djvu document
    Step - 5 : Menu - Export As: PDF

    Done! A simpler method I cannot think of Good luck!

    I tried the other solutions but only this one worked for me thank you very much

    Re: How to convert djvu to pdf

    I did it in other way.
    I just printed it to file twice by default Document Viewer.
    For first time to .ps and after to .pdf.

    P.S. .ps to .pdf conversion takes a lot of time.
