    Print from Website, Preserving Links


    Hi. I'm looking for GNU-Linux software that will do the following :

    'Print' a whole lot of pages from a website as a single PDF, while preserving links. It should do this in a manner similar to the 'print pages from ...' -> 'website' option in Adobe Acrobat Pro. So far, I've only seen software that will create PS and PDF documents from ps (*2ps / *2pdf) or any file (a2ps) already on my machine or will print from a website (print to file), but will not preserve links.

    Can anybody recommend something that both generates a single PDF from multiple web pages and preserves links. If you suggest something that is scriptable, please also provide a script (with usage instructions) that does this. Thanks in advance.

    I've moved your thread here for better exposure.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    To Where?

    Um. Would you please be so kind as to check your link? It doesn't seem to work.

    Also, I found this site, which partly does what I want, but it doesn't follow links recursively (which Acrobat does). Sorry to re-open this topic here.

    Note that MikeTbob was saying he moved your thread here, to this forum (the Applications Forum), but he didn't provide a link because this is the Applications Forum.

    Doh! Sorry about that. Must have been a brain fart.
