The short answer:

Maybe, but the method I found requires you to compile a program from source, and I had no luck with it.

The long answer:

Possibly. I've never heard of or used DjVu files before, but here's what I found:

Apparently, "JRAPublish 3.0 [is] the only product on the market that will convert searchable-image DjVu to searchable-image PDF". Doesn't look too "free" though.

However, the last post says:

"The latest version of the djview4 viewer
has a convenient exporter that can produce TIFF or PDF.
Select File->Export as, then choose PDF.

Download from"

The djviewer in my repos (Kubuntu Feisty) didn't have such an option. I downloaded the source from the sourceforge site, but the configure script kept choking on a syntax error at line 7006:

user@machine:~/Desktop/djview4-4.2$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for IceConnectionNumber in -lICE... yes
./configure: line 7006: syntax error near unexpected token `;;'
./configure: line 7006: `  ;;'
Not sure what the deal is here, but it refuses to work, so I can't help any further.

You might try printing from a DjVu viewer (like djviewer) to a PDF printer. I am able to print to pdf from some programs after installing the cups-pdf package.
