To be able to Optimize document (default, screen, ebook, printer, prepress) with ghostscript, you can remove in ghostscript_kmenu.sh these parameters: -dTextAlphaBits=4 -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 or you'll get an Error: Can't set GraphicsAlphaBits or TextAlphaBits with a vector device

Thanks for this very useful service menu.
Is it possible to extract non contiguous pages with PDFtk submenu? Because I could only extract a range, eg. 7-11, but could not page 7, and 9-11. Is this a shortcoming of your service menu, or simply I did not know the right syntax to give the range?

Definitely one of the most useful service menus, after preparing some stamp files for pdftk, I use this a lot. Also repaginate is something I very often need as well as burst and join.All work flawlessly on Debian Wheezy KDE 4.8.

Great work, thank you.

I have quite a few issues with KDE 4.8 SC2

- the selection order doesn't seem to work anymore, instead it's sorted by filenames

- combining pdfs often results in nothing

I encountered that converting pdf2djvu with presets dpi600 or dpi300 do nothing. Although Custom and Advanced presets work. By slightly modifying dvi option handling in a shell script i get this to work.

The "convert to booklet" looks like just what I want, but I get an error when I run it on kubuntu 10.10:

pdfnup ERROR: the --pages option is not allowed,
see 'pdfjam --help' or http://go.warwick.ac.uk/pdfjam
for page selection examples

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hello
This is the most useful ServiceMenu I've ever seen.
Would it be possible to put all the services within a sub-menu? For example, the sub menu PDF in "Actions".
Thank you very much.
