chm2pdf 0.0.3 is out!

Sorry for the long delay, but this little script is not dead. chm2pdf
0.0.3 is out: now with image support! (Intra-pdf links still dead, anyway. But I had suggestions on how to solve them.)

Download it here.

The script logic changed quite a lot, and it is still very rough
around the edges (0.1 is still -relatively- far). I'd like everyone of
you to test it as much as possible, since it is very likely that bugs
and quirks will occur. My knowledge of the CHM file format is
tentative at best.

Let me know how it works for you.

As for the xtopdf collaboration, I have to reconnect myself with the xtopdf developer to see. I'd like to have chm2pdf in a decent state (0.1) before, anyway.

make sure you have python-chm bindings installed !!!

or you get an error like
File "/usr/bin/chm2pdf", line 11, in module
import chm.chm as chm
ImportError: No module named chm.chm

Well, it's explicitly stated in the project page...

Hello! Another thing is the pdftk for me on Ubuntu 7.04.

But I've another Problem. I think the errors with images are less important, but some pdf-files cannot be opened:

Error: Failed to open PDF file:
0002.pdf

Any ideas?
I rebuild chmlib, python-chm and pdftk arre installed.

Have a nice Weekend!
