If you have more than 2GB of RAM and your CPU supports pae, then I'd definitely use pae. If you have 2GB or less, I wouldn't bother. I thought it was higher than 2GB, like 3.5GB or 4GB: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension The "Memory: 2072MB" in his signature put's him right ...

Here's how to tell if CPU is pae-capable:
Code:
grep --color=always -i PAE /proc/cpuinfo

Given that convert works well for you, if you make a step by step example of how/ what you want to do it should be easy enough to make a little program for you that uses convert for the backend Thanks, but that won't be necessary. I could write a shell script to do it, but doing it via a terminal w...

That would be great! I'd love to see the finished product. I agree that startup is the biggest difference. Xfce starts almost immediately after logging in, KDE has a whole separate startup procedure after logging in. I'd say the time difference is about 2X. But hey, I usually make my coffee while my...

I also tried LibreOffice Writer. The same applies as to exporting one at a time. Hopefully there is a customized app for this. I did find this http://xmodulo.com/2012/11/convert-pdf-files-to-jpg-format-on-linux.html Reading over the instructions, I saw that the convert command has a couple of optio...

There is an option to import as images, the default is layers. You would then need to export each one as a JPG. It is time consuming for pdfs with many pages. Yes, I see what you mean. I can export one layer at a time as individual PDFs and combine them using pdfshuffler, but that is very time-cons...

You can open a pdf in GIMP and import. Then save as a jpg. You can also export a jpg as a PDF.

Thanks! I now do remember another thread on a similar topic. Does Gimp handle multiple pages or just one at a time?

Do the final PDF files have to be editable text, or just bitmaps? No editable text. In fact, that's what I'm shooting for. I upload PDF files to a file-sharing service (for read-only) but the formats get messed up; e.g., superscripts and subscripts, underlines, etc. If I upload a PDF of an image, t...

... creating another MX "fork" would place a huge burden on the developers. I don't think this is true, at least not according my understanding and to what anticapitalista has said on these forums. Adding a KDE version of MX would not be a big burden. The difficulties are mostly political...
