A slacker builds Linux From Scratch!

Posted 10-12-2010 at 09:29 AM by Lufbery (The Slacker's Blog)

Once again I'm writing about another "distribution" purely from a Slackware user's perspective. But this is a little different. I put distribution in quotes because Linux from Scratch (LFS) is a distribution in the same way that corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and an egg is corn bread -- you have to make it yourself following a recipe.

Batch convert images to PDF

Recently (within the past year) I have helped a user with a problem converting hundreds of images into individual PDF files. I was pleasantly surprised to find imagemagick to effortlessly do this.

Command line tool imagemagick does what you need if they're images.
sudo apt-get install imagemagick
Usage: (coverts all images into one pdf)
convert *.jpg foo.pdf
Usage: (converts each image into an individual pdf)
