Software :: Document Format Compatibility W/ Ereader
Jan 7, 2010
I picked up a Barnes and Nobles nook (ereader) for my fianc'e and have some ebooks in multiple formats HTML, RTF, PDF, TXT, DOCX, DOC and a couple random other formats. But the problem here is that it only reads PDF files. I need a way to convert these files to PDF but also to edit the PDF text. For instance there are a couple of LIT files I converted to PDF in Windows that have a header and footer that I cant seem to find out how to remove.
I have been asked to provide a document in Microsoft word format. Is there a lightweight MS word editor to produce Microsoft word documents please? I don't want to install the whole Open Office thing just to produce one document.
How do I save a document I created in OpenOffice.org in .doc format? I want to use the same file in a windows OS. Whenever i select the "Windows XP" option then click save OpenOffice crashes. How do I fix this?
A neighbor of mine just got a Canon Pixma MP450 printer, to replace an old HP printer, and I am trying to get it to work with Fedora 11 installation from a machine they have borrowed from me. The printer gets recognized upon plugging it in but when I try to print a test page from the printer properties I receive the following error:'client-error-document-format-not-supported'
The driver that is selected for the printer is "Generic Driver" I have tried to select a driver but have not found any Canon drivers from the selection dialog box. After searching the web I see mention of a Canon MP150 driver working for the MP450 but I have not found this driver. Is there a driver I have to install from YUM or download from Canon? Are there others successfully using this printer and if so what have they done to get it to work?
Running Mandriva 2010 I have just bought an iRiver Cover Story ereader and found that it is not detected when connected to a USB port. Seeing that the Cover Story is run on Linux, I was surprised to find this problem. It fails to show up in lsusb.
I'm looking for a no frills open source ereader for ebooks (maximum screen 8"). No wifi necessary nor any apps other than what is required to view a non-drm pdf or epub format (no mp3 playing required) and a usb port. Something like the Kobo or the eSlick but available in Europe would do fine. I'd appreciate hearing your recommendations.
just wondering is there a simple script to convert datetime to UTC format. I have been searching different forums but most answers are for converting UTC to datetime. For example what is a simple command/script to convert todays datetime to UTC format i.e. '2009-10-09 11:47:59'.
my school we want to print a magazine but we have problem with the format of the files. We need to create a sheet in A3 format from two sheets in A4 format. I was reading about the pdftk library but it doesn't do what i need.
I need some assistance in trying to format a USB hard drive to vfat format but can't seem to do so. I am currently using RHEL 5.3. I have tried the following commands and they all come back as "command not found"
I have an e-machines flat pannel monitor and I often find it's not supported. That, or I have to use 800x600 resolution. I'm on XP right now on a compaq and I have to settle with 1024x768. Which is stretched out. I also use a linksys USB adapter for internet and it must work with-out effort on my part. It works with the latest versions of ubuntu, puppy, Damn Small Linux and a few others. Are there any distros that might work for me? And by the way, I get the correct resolution (I can't remember what it is) with my e-machines W3052.
As a newbie for linux, I am really confused about gcc version. Aren't the new ones compatible the old ones? But online there is always someone says ,he should install a old suitalbe one for his IDE. I am really confused. If it needs a long words to express the reason clearly, a link or some books you recommend is a good answer.
I have installed Centos 5.6 (32 bit) in a virtual machine and would like to know if it is possible to update it to a 64 bit installation (probably I will also need to move to another version of the vm player too) or if there is any kind of compatibility lib(s)

Ok, so I want to install the ubuntu UNR on my desktop. is that possible ?
I have tried various times to install it on my laptop in it just stuck every single time at the end of installation. so I thought there might be a problem with compatibility for computers other than netbooks. My laptop is a thoshiba satellite a300 series laptop, with a core2due t5750 intel processor and 3GB DDR2 667Mhz (i'll post full specification if required ). so now I want to install it on my desktop, Dual-Core intel cpu e5300 2GB of ram @ 800Mhz Asrok G41M-VS2 motherboard
Are ubuntu- 64 bit packages I am using on my core 2 duo desktop compatible with core i3? I am thinking of buying new core i3 laptop as I am moving to new city .. I will not be having fast Internet access ( GPRS ), So I will be using the downloaded deb packages (In var/cache/apt) to install softwares I need whenever I format my laptop ( I experiment a lot, So I format a lot )
The one thing that keeps my XP partition alive is MS Word. Using both packages at a far more basic level than you guys by the sounds of it, but still the formatting is a nightmare. I've been using and trying out a number of distros over the past year or so and everything I need is right here. Its just so annoying theres one thing that stops me converting all together. I could write a perfect essay up in Open Office and take it into college. Open it up on their MS Word and its all goes to pot. Everything all over the place, and I have to realign margins, paragraphs etc etc. Regardless to file format its saved in, I've tried them all!
I'm in computer sales and I have a customer that wants to replace all his macs and windows computers with ubuntu. I don't know anything about linux but I heard that there is a strong community behind ubuntu He's asked me to send him an evaluation unit so that he can test it out with ubuntu and see how well it works. I personally support his idea of going with reliable, bare minimum spec computers to do a whole overhaul. But I don't want him to deal with compatibility issues on a regular basis..I was looking at the Dell D620-D630, what are your thoughts on these machines running ubuntu?
