Hey all,

I'd like to convert jpeg files to eps files. So I downloaded the
tool jpeg2ps from
http://www.pdflib.com/products/more/jpeg2ps.html [Broken]
I want to use it in Linux, but I don't know how to install this.
(I've got SuSE Linux 7.1)

I would be very glad if someone could explain me what EXACTLY
I have to type in my console.

Thanks in advance.

-Edgardo

Did you download the file and extract it?

http://www.pdflib.com/products/more/jpeg2ps/jpeg2ps-1.9.tar.gz [Broken]

There should be a file called INSTALL that will tell you exactly how to install the file. It usually like this on the command line:

./configure
make
make install

If you don't know how to extract the file all you have to do is open up a command line and do this:

tar -zxvf jpeg2ps-1.9.tar.gz

I downloaded it and extracted it (with rightclick and extract :shy: )

I extracted the file, went to the jpeg2ps folder and typed in what you told me.
If I type ./configure, the console says: /. is a directory
If I type make, it says: command not found
If I type make install: command not found.

Please, could you try out installing this little tool and tell me in detail what to type in.
I think you have to compile the file, but I don't know how to do it.

Thanks

I extracted the file and all you have to do is type make in the jpeg2ps-1.9 directory. There is no need to do ./configure since there are not dependences on anything else. If you don't have make, then you need to install the development tools that comes on the suse cd.
