Re: How can I autocrop out margins from a book that has been scanned into PDF?

I found briss. It's not auto-crop, but it's close. It intelligently puts a box around just the text (it detects headers and page numbers as stuff to crop out).

It seems to be the best one so far.

How can I autocrop out margins from a book that has been scanned into PDF?

There is a PDF of a scanned book that I'd like to crop. The PDF is freely available here , from the author. As a scanned book, the margins are not consistent. On some pages, the text goes all the way to the edge of the PDF's page (for example, PDF page 129 or actual page 112. On other pages, the tex...

Re: Seeking the next most readable font after Lexend

I recently installed/added Lexend into my mint computer and e-reader until someone pointed out that it doesn't have bold or italics versions. Unfortunately the font creator didn't create a bold or italics version of the font, not is it a priority for him. Surely the whole point of Lexend was to imp...

Re: Pls help me debug/fix a JSON error code on a webpage using Google Chrome's Developer Console

Hi fellow Minter, Murray. :) Thanks for checking up on things. Usually anything you do in the developer console is temporary and is lost as soon as you close the page, so even if there was a way to fix this in the developer console you would have to do it every time you used the extension. I don't m...

Re: Pls help me debug/fix a JSON error code on a webpage using Google Chrome's Developer Console

Apparently this is something that can be fixed in Google Chrome's developer console.

For many months now, the app developer has repeatedly said "We'll get it fixed in two weeks". But the fix has never materialized.

So we can't wait for them.

My Linux Mint laptop can connect to the wifi. My phone can't. Is there a way I can have my laptop (running 19.2 Cinnamon) share its internet connection to my phone (non rooted, not rootable. Running Android Pie) by USB cable?

Re: Can someone please guide me in installing Windows version of Calibre on my Linux Mint? [solved]

I've marked this thread as solved because I found a way to accomplish what I wanted with the Linux Calibre version. It turned out that there was a plugin (obok) to do what I want, and it works just as well on Linux Calibre as it does on Windows Calibre. Funny thing is, I had that plugin installed al...
