Learn How to Quickly Convert Comic Book Files to PDF


Are you interested in converting a crb or cbz file to PDF on Ubuntu? We have received news about a script you can use to do just that.

The creator, Rumush, explains on the project’s Github page that “reading comics in PDF format is useful when trying to read on devices without the special software for reading cbr or cbz files. This makes it much easier to read comics from various devices”.

To help he’s created a tool called comic convert, which lets you quickly convert any *.cbr or *.cbz file to pdf.  Comic Convert has been tested on both Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and on the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

If you’re working with particularly large comic book files you will need to be patient during the conversion process.


Downloading Comic Convert Script

To utilize the Comic Convert script you will first need to download the master .zip from Comic Convert for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Github page.

Extract the .zip archive and then, use the Terminal to navigate into the extracted directory.

Run chmod +x ./comicconvert inside the directory that contains the script (so it will have all the appropriate privileges) and then move it to your /usr/local/bin/ folder so you would be able to run it from anywhere.
