Convert a PDF in Czech language with right characters with PDFTOTEXT?


Hello,

I did try to convert the book Romance pro křídlovku

Code:

there is however the all characters which are not working.

Code:
locale -a
C
C.UTF-8
POSIX

ISO 8859-2 is not there

I could convert it with Chromium + Staroffice2 to DOC, which is capable to keep the right encoding.

no way with open programmes.

Why not use UTF-8, which is the default?

Already up? Deja ton café?

C.UTF-8 is for me ok, but I just would like to convert it and view it on pocket book, that's why.
I did add the encoding with dpgk-reconf locales. Anyhow, all time, I use UTF as default.
DOC worked, but well, TXT could be a cool learning experience.

No way so far for txt.
