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,

  • I agree with Joseph and I think it should be an answer.

  • 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

    You don't need to install something special. Evince can open DjVu files (compile-time option) and save them to PDF or PS. Oct 5, 2011 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.


You can in fact get a djvu file nested in a PDF container if you \usepackage{attachfile}. But this may not be what you're after, because when your resulting PDF is rendered, it will not display the djvu files inline. At best, the PDF can show a thumb tac such that when a user clicks it, the djvu file is either displayed separately or a prompt asks for an action on the djvu file.

  • The question was about manipulation of djVu files not only showing nor attaching them. Jun 30, 2017 at 11:05
