Is it possible to manipulate .djVu files with pgf and/or pdfpage packages; and produce a pdf?

I think the answer here will be 'no' as DjVu files are not PDF files, so will need to be converted, – Joseph Wright Oct 5 '11 at 9:34
I agree with Joseph and I think it should be an answer. – pluton Oct 5 '11 at 10:53
In ubuntu you can do the following (taken from an online forum) Step - 1 : Goto Synaptic Package Manager (System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager) Step - 2 : Install DJview4 Step - 3 : Run DJview (Applications - Graphics - DJView4) Step - 4 : Open your .djvu document Step - 5 : Menu - Export As: PDF – Raphael Oct 5 '11 at 12:33
You don't need to install something special. Evince can open DjVu files (compile-time option) and save them to PDF or PS. – Andrey Vihrov Oct 5 '11 at 13:07

The DjVu format is different to PDF, and so there is no way to 'slot in' a DjVu file inside a larger PDF. Thus you will need to convert your DjUv to PDF format, then include from the PDF.
