Plucker-build and Ubuntu

Plucker is a PDB (Palm e-book documents) reader and creator. I use it to convert HTML files to PDB format, so that I can comfortly read them on my PDA. Plucker is part of Ubuntu’s “universe” repository, but it installs rather crippled. Do this to fix it:

sudo su - (type your password to become root)
cd /usr/bin
ln -fs $PYPLUCKER/ plucker-build
ln -fs $PYPLUCKER/ plucker-de
ln -fs $PYPLUCKER/ plucker-decode
ln -fs $PYPLUCKER/ plucker-dump
ln -fs $PYPLUCKER/ pluck-comics

After doing this, you’ll be able to do:

plucker-build somefile.html > somefile.pdb

to create the files.
