# Gentoo Linux: Publication Files Conversion

Posted on January 2, 2013

Sometimes it is necessary to convert between the publication formats. This may help to pass the mission...

### DjVu to PDF Conversion

To convert a DjVu file into a PDF, use the following command:

\$ ddjvu -format=pdf FILE.djvu FILE.pdf


### Important Note

To be honest, it is definitely not an effective operation. Based on the scanned images content (text/pictures) included in the source DjVu file, the PDF size can increase 50 times (to hundreds of megabytes).
