it would be very useful
if you can add pdftodjvu
to repositories-
to be possible to install
with synaptic


OK, good idea, added package pdf-to-djvu to repos, install with Synaptic or with apt-get;
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install pdf-to-djvu

The included script pdf-to-djvu (in /usr/local/bin) has small change, should still be possible to call with Thunar custom action, but you can run also from Menu > Graphics > "Pdf to Djvu convert", then using yad file-selector you can select .pdf files to convert to .djvu.

*** Install Debian Stretch-Backports kernel ***
(currently it's 4.18.0-0.bpo.1)
And build aufs using aufs-dkms, the Debian kernel doesn't include aufs by default
Different from "upgrade-kernel", this will create initrd.img, initrd1.xz, vmlinuz1 and a .squashfs module containing the backports-kernel in a directory on partition of choice (see screenshots).
Similar to how "apt2sfs" works, the required packages are installed (using unionfs-fuse) in "chroot" (jail) so it doesn't alter the filesystem.
So, after running, copy the created files to the frugal installed 'live' folder and reboot to boot with the backports kernel.
(recommended to make backup first of original initrd.img, initrd1.xz, vmlinuz1)

Install upgrade-kernel-bpo with Synaptic (Reload first) or with apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install upgrade-kernel-bpo


Run from Menu > System > Upgrade to Backports kernel

Should work also for a Devuan build

EDIT: Note that this process needs around 750MB free space (temporary at some point, final result will be much less, around 95MB)

EDIT2: Updated to v 0.0.3, made some small changes:
- Will ask for password now when running as normal user
- Better error checking and cleaning up when interrupted

Fred

a)How difficult would be to convert this script (or add an extra option) to create the files for the current latest debian kernel instead of the backport one?

(I've asked something like this in the past - to do a kernel upgrade with just copying 3-4 files on the /live folder).



b)Also, I would like to inform our readers that after 3 weeks of testing the stretch32bit version with JWM runs very well on P4 1.6GMHz with 512MB ram. The custom frugal install has LibreOffice 4.4 , firefox 10 (only for playing swf files) and latest firefox , scratch , tux paint,math and type.
Btw, I could not believe that firefox 10 could cooperate so well with the latest adobe flash (v31.0.0.xxx). I can use all the latest flash swf files without having to deal with the latest & heaviest firefoxes.

Not very difficult, but I'd like to keep supporting LZ4 for loading and mounting .squashfs.
The backports kernel has that support by default, so only aufs is needed to be built by using aufs-dkms.
But the stable (4.9) kernel hasn't got support for LZ4 by default, so there's the problem.
However, somehow should be possible to make script similar (as you say, kernel upgrade with just copying 3-4)
I'll get back later about it.

Fred

I've added similar script to the repository: upgrade-kernel2
It will create the files required in location of choice for current kernel 4.9.0-8
Note that it will not be registered by the package management.
Install with Synaptic or with apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install upgrade-kernel2

Run from Menu > System > Upgrade-Kernel v2
