Hi, I wanted to convert a few .pdf files to .epub. I use ebook-convert (from calibre), which converts it to html first, with pdftohtml. However, pdftohtml doesn't exactly work as expected - some of local characters (language-specific) are there, but some of them are completely gone. There is just blank space instead.I googled, and found i should do it manually, with parameter "-enc Latin" . Then pdftohtml says:
Code:
Error: Couldn't find unicodeMap file for the 'Latin2' encoding
I googled more, but found nothing useful. Just that I should install package {They do not allow me to post links, so google for "xpdf latin2" and the first link} - i did so, but it keeps throwing the same error. Some relevant files follow:"
/etc/xpdf/xpdfrc-latin2:

Code:
#----- begin Latin2 support package (2002-oct-22)
unicodeMap Latin2 /usr/share/xpdf/latin2/Latin2.unicodeMap
#----- end Latin2 support package
/etc/xpdf/xpdfrc
